Flatbush, Brooklyn’s own The Underachievers have been in the game for nearly a decade but they haven’t lost their sharpness one bit. This week, they returned with their latest single, "Giannis" in tribute to the Milwaukee Bucks Forward. The pair tap TwoFreshBeats to cook up the hallucinatory and muddy production that have both AK and Issa Gold snapping on. They claim the one-of-one status, much like Giannis’ stature in the NBA currently, though there’s parts of the song that feel recycled from previous Flatbush joints in the past. Either way, it’s a tough record.
The song arrives shortly after they celebrated the one year anniversary of the Beast Coast project alongside members of Flatbush Zombies and Pro Era. Though they have released a new project since, "Giannis" seems like a sign that UA SZN is on the way.
Ain’t no n***a like me
Heat to my dome but I’m strong in the streets
Roll me a zone, I’ve been sober all week
But shakin’ the game like I’m Giannis the freak
