If you've been sleeping on New York's The Underachievers, you're probably not aware of what AKTHESAVIOR and Issa Gold can do. Although they generally move as a unit, AK recently dropped off a solo loosie, the "Test Me Freestyle." Over a refreshing throwback beat (with shades of vintage Timbaland), AK goes in with some focused bars, holding it down the Beast Coast movement. "Pay me every phrase, gave me knowledge like a sage," raps AK, "bloodsuckas gon' hate, I'm riding dolo like I'm Blade."
This freestyle is further proof that AK, along with fellow Beast Coast rappers Joey Bada$$, the Pro Era crew, Flatbush Zombies, and partner Issa, are carving out their own place in the vast pantheon of New York lyricists. For those lamenting the death of "real hip-hop," look no further, for AKTHESAVIOR is still out here, and he's been doing this for a while now.
