WAKE UP LUCKI

Over the last decade, Chicago rap has been characterized by two predominant strands in the popular imagination: drill, with its hard edges and bleeding heart, and the candy-colored stylings of more backpacker-friendly artists like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, and Mick Jenkins. If Keef and Durk are like the Thug and Gucci of Chicago, the scene revolving around Chance resembles more the “New Atlanta” of iLoveMakonnen, Awful Records, and Earthgang. But Lucki, who received one of his first major co-signs from Chance in 2014, has taken neither of those routes; he’s closer in spirit to Playboi Carti, a singular artist who has paved a lane of his own. Fittingly, one of Lucki’s chief beatmakers, and the sole producer of his new album WAKE UP LUCKI, is F1LTHY, founder of Philadelphia production collective Working on Dying and the sonic accelerationist behind many of the brain-melting beats of Carti’s Whole Lotta Red.

Lucki and Lil Yachty Don’t Need “Greed” in Their New Visual Single

Serving confessional, incantatory rhymes with his distinctive croak, Lucki plumbs the depths of his soul in his music. Serving up a hypnotic, bite-sized banger, Lucki shares “Greed,” his new video single. Built around a swirling flute melody and clunking percussion, “Greed” finds Lucki stunting alongside Lil Yachty, both rappers touting their devil-may-care lifestyles and dog-eat-dog mentalities. Though the words are boastful, Lucki delivers his rhymes in a staggering croak, indicating the deep-seated pain that informs his worldview. Shot by Yachty’s favorite videographer AMD Visuals, the video for “Greed” finds the two artists posting up outside a convenience store, having a blast as they recite their rhymes. “Greed” is Lucki’s first new release of 2021, following the late-2020 The World Is Lucki’s, a vibey 3-track EP.
