I love both equally but I catch myself playing more UA than FBZ on a daily basis.

FBZ: Eric Arc Elliot’s production is stupidly amazing, Meech’s lyricism are tooooo fucking raw nuff said, and Juice is downright lovable i find that not only does he puts so much energy, charisma and presence but in nearly all cases the nigga embodies the track itself though obviously not as lyrical as the others but the man is such a fun character to listen to in fact in most cases i Listen for his work.

UA: Issa and AK are sooooooo fucking technically powerful in terms of flow. They know how to ride a beat with such grace, their beat selection fits so well with their subject matter, they’re capable of hyping and educating a motherfucker with ease.

BOTH: Incredible flows, Excellent beat selection, uniqueness and savory lyricism. BUT they both feel short term in a sense longevity, though unique the subject matter becomes linear and repetitive and can potentially drag down their promising careers.

yadayadayada

I can’t fucking wait for their upcoming projects!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like em both, slight edge to FZ because they’re a little more interesting. Let’s see what they both do now that they have some buzz tho, make or break moments.

I fuck with The Underachievers on heavy, constant rotation.
Can’t wait for Chapter 23, not to say I don’t like Flatbush but tbh it’s more because of Eric’s production (Who is the better rapper of the group as well).

FBZ were supposed to have dropped a tape called Better Off Dead in the spring. Anyone hear anything about whether it’s supposed to still be coming, or did they scrap it.
Little early in the game for them to be pullin some Detox shit haha.

Flatbush Zombies>>>>>>>>

Underachievers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I’m a fervent stan of both, so idk if my opinion counts.

They’re both great flow and technically wise but subject matter is lacking as they repeat the same shit over and over

But it was easier to get through DRUGS than Indigoism for me

Flatbush Zombies, only because I feel that The Underachievers are limited in subject matter. Indigoism, whilst still a great mixtape, sounds too repetitive after a while. D.R.U.G.S on the other hand has a lot of variation, and has a lot more replay value imo. Also, the production on D.R.U.G.S is great and I feel that Erick is extremely underrated and doesn’t get the credit he deserves.

Ok sorry if this post is long, but,

I prefer the flatbush zombies in all honesty, Simply due to the fact that they don’t seem to revolve all their music around the 3rd eye living god type shit, that’s what put me off a bit on the underachievers, they can spit and they’re good, dont get me wrong on that. I like indigoism alot, but after a while constantly hearing about your 3rd eye, and your prism, and being a god amongst men, and your gold soul, and all that other shit song, after song, after song, gets a bit repetitive.

Flatbush has mentioned it obviously, same as joey here and there, although joey seems to be kinda christian from some of his posts on twitter and facebook, saying god is good.. etc

but back to what I was saying, it’s not just that aspect of it, it just gets annoying somewhat after a while. DRUGS has a good balance IMO, they dont overuse it but it has a few references.. I skip alot of indigoism though.

And I’m hyped for summer knights from joey, so long as he doesn’t fill a tape with his 3rd eye.. lmaoo
