The Mighty Underdogs is a hip hop "supergroup" formed by rappers Gift of Gab from Blackalicious and Lateef the Truth Speaker of Latyrx, and producer Headnodic of the Crown City Rockers.

The trio formed when Lateef, selecting tracks for his planned solo album, found he liked enough Headnodic-produced tracks to make a whole album. Gift of Gab became involved after he and Lateef saw the opportunity for their own long-planned collaboration.

They released a debut EP, The Prelude, in October 2007 independently through their own Giftstribution website. A video was made for the track "Gunfight". The Definitive Jux label has also made The Prelude available for purchase from their web store after signing the group for their full-length debut, Dropping Science Fiction. Released in October 2008, the album features confirmed guests including DJ Shadow, Mr. Lif and Akrobatik of The Perceptionists, Tha Alkaholiks' Tash, Jurassic 5's Chali 2na, and Julian and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley.
