The group formed in 2008 at a local beat battle club in Atlanta, GA, and shortly recorded and released their first mixtape, Who the !@#$ Are The Undergrads, in 2009. The mixtape created a large amount of buzz around in the underground Atlanta music world, which solidify their unique sound and talents as one of the best groups out to date.
In June 2010, the group released their highly anticipated album, Orientation, and saw its single “Party All Night” become an instant hit within clubs, college radio stations around and steady rising on the online music charts. With Orientation, The Undergrads established their innovative, fresh, lyrically-rich, exciting twist on music—creating a sound like no other—calling and branding the unique sound, alternative hip-pop. The Undergrads are often described as sounding like a mixture of The Black Eyed Peas meets Outkast with a twist of Linkin Park.
The Undergrads released two music videos on YouTube and World Star from Orientation for the singles, “Party All Night” and “Wyneesha.” Both videos are generating thousands of viewers and hits. The creator of the videos, New York music video director, Todd Rocheford, provides a taste of the typical day and life of The Undergrads.

It is The Undergrads mission to not only take music to the next level, but to also make a positive impact on the world today and one day be mentioned in the same breath as many of the greats.
