Picture this: it’s 2013, and the young Chicago rap scene is divided heavily into different styles: the grim, violent sounds of drill led by Chief Keef and his GBE crew, and the bouncy, psychadelic pop rap popularized by Chance The Rapper and the Savemoney collective. And then there was Lucki, somewhere in between the two, at that time still going by the longer pseudonym Lucki Eck$. Yet three years later, most of the rappers on this current wave of Soundcloud popularity employ the same lazy-but-infectious flow that Lucki perfected years before on tapes like Body High and my personal favorite, X. His newest mixtape / EP, Freewave II, is a collection of freestyles that follows up his very enjoyable 2015 tape of the same name. If you’re into rappers that have found themselves on the No Jumper podcast, you will most likely find yourself liking Lucki quite a bit. Listen to Freewave II below.
