[Hip-Hop] Lucki Eck$ – Cholos


Lucki Eck$ first grabbed our attention a couple years back with his debut mixtape, Alternative Trap, a supremely woozy, introspective take on the trap music coming out of his hometown of Chicago. Since then, he’s continued to delve deeper into that sound releasing an impressive follow-up in Body High positioning himself for big things this year. On his latest single, Eck$’s flow actually diverges a bit from his usual drowsy charm as he employs an infectious rolling delivery to match a jazzy instrumental provided by Infamous Legends. “Cholos” still holds the core facets of Lucki’s Xanax-inspired ethos but does so in a way that feels slightly more energetic with great results. Listen for yourself above–we’re excited to see what 2015 has in store for Eck$.

Last summer, Chi-town emcee Lucki Eck$ dropped his debut mixtape, Alternative Trap, a hazy, collection of songs that caught the attention of the hip-hop blogosphere and earned him a dedicated following. Although his brand of rhymes is not particularly original in subject matter, generally covering drug consumption/distribution and women, Lucki’s approach provides new layers of depth far more focused on his psyche than the boastful repetition that has become the rap industry standard.

Gearing up for his sophomore project, Body High, the young artist took to Twitter to release an early glimpse into the project. The appropriately titled “Finesse” features ethereal production from regular Danny Brown collaborator, Skywlkr, over which Eck$ spits his signature subtle, druggy delivery. Zone out to this one above and keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming mixtape due out on July 18th–you won’t want to sleep on Lucki.
