Nice To Meet You
Lucki Eck$ is 18 years old. Do you remember what you were doing when you were 18? You probably didn't have two fire mixtapes out, as well as a buzzing collaboration with one of the game's wildest artists, but we'll get to all that. He's carved out his own niche in the exploding Chicago rap scene, because he doesn't necessarily fit in with the usually dark and aggressive drill subgenre, yet he also doesn't quite fit in with the introspective, mostly positive Save Money crew, which houses the likes of Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa. His 2013 release Alternative Trap really quite accurately described the young artist, as he's created just a slightly different variation on anything we've heard out of the region yet. He raps about the prescription meds he sells and uses, but in the most melodic way possible, leaving his songs sounding like hazy, Xanax fueled trips through his young brain. You can hear and download his entire previous project below.
