Underachievers on Clockwork Indigo With Flatbush Zombies: "This Is Never Going to Stop"

It's a good time to be a hip-hop fan. All over the country, artists and MCs are coming together to produce some of the most ambitious and memorable rap music since the '90s.

New York, in particular, is a hotbed of activity, and two of Brooklyn's most heavily hyped crews, Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies, have recently joined forces. They've chosen the name Clockwork Indigo and they've just dropped a self-titled, five-song EP.

To celebrate this new slab, the group's hit the road for its debut tour, the Electric Koolade Experience, set to bumrush downtown Miami's Grand Central this week. So we caught up with Underachievers' Issa Gold to talk about psychedelics, literature, life, Stitches, and the new hip-hop renaissance.
