It's been longer than a rap minute since The Underachievers released their last full-length project—last May's freely-released It Happened In Flatbush mixtape—but fans of the Brooklyn-born duo won't have to wait much longer for new music.
Early Friday morning (January 27), UA member Issa Gold made a glorious announcement on Twitter:
Yep, that's right—The Underachievers have plans to release not one, not two, but three brand new projects in 2017.

Press play on new releases from Lakeyah, Larry June and Cardo, Cheque, Co Cash, and midwxst.
Now, before you call all your friends and get Issa's tweet tattooed to your left calf, it's important to keep in mind that rappers often oversell and under-deliver on promises that include the release of multiple projects in a given time period. In 2015, Lupe announced plans to release three albums in 2016. You know how many albums Lupe actually dropped in 2016? Zero.
While you wait until the tentative first release next month, however, we do recommend we you dig back into the duo's 2014 debut, Cellar Door: Terminus ut Exordium.
