s*x m*ney dr*gs

s*x m*ney dr*gs

In 2013, the Chicago rap conversation was dominated by ominous drill at one end and feel-good soul on the other. LUCKI, who broke through that year with his acclaimed Alternative Trap tape, floated somewhere in between, spitting teenage trap daydreams over spacey, sophisticated beats. Since then he’s amassed a low-key cult following for his moody, slurry raps that keep it viscerally real on drugs, depression, and romance. If you thought an album called s*x m*ney dr*gs might sound like a party, you haven’t been paying attention: LUCKI indulges to stave off withdrawals and bad memories. The silky-smooth production’s like a cool towel to a fevered brow, particularly on the bluesy “Purple Heart Ski” and Veeze collab “Wholeworldslatt.”
