My Way – [Lucki]

Lucki is, without a doubt, one of today’s most innovative creators, and few series of projects have embodied this creative ambition better than the Chicago native’s Freewave tapes. As noted in our recent interview with Lucki, Freewave 3 will be making its entrance into the world soon, and in order to garner anticipation as well as give fans a small taste of what to expect, Lucki is here to give us the project’s first single today entitled “My Way”. Produced by Cortdot, this song follows the eccentric sonic direction that we’ve come to expect from such an exciting artist, as he looks toward a gentle, atmospheric melody to soundtrack smooth, quick flows and hard-nosed lyrics. Lucki is certainly ready to end his prosperous 2018 on a high note, and “My Way” is proof. Stream this one below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Who You Really Kidding – [Lucki]

Lucki has been a favorite here at Lyrical Lemonade for damn near half a decade now, and yesterday a record of his titled “Who You Really Kidding” hit the internet & it’s not anything you want to miss out on. He joined forces with producers AR (who officially released this track via his Soundcloud page) and fellow LL favorite Plu2o Nash, it had a dark & ire vibe to it but we all know that Lucki excels over these types of beats, and this new joint was certainly no disappointment! Stream this brand new song below and if you like it be sure to check out our recent featured post about Lucki here!

Lucki: A Testament To Growth

// Photography courtesy of @reemlovette At the core of any great artist exists the innate ability to reinvent oneself. Adjacent to reinvention exists adaptability, and setting the basis for both exists the concept of identity. Whether it be musically or individually, this solid foundation is what leads us to support the artists we know and love. Chicago-bred talent, Lucki, has been developing his creative identity since the 2013 release of his debut mixtape, Alternative Trap, at age 16. Defined by a backbone of atmospheric production and otherworldly, slow-burning instrumentals, his legacy remains embedded in the air of Chicago’s prosperous rap scene, taking shape as a perpetual smoke that never seems to fully air out. The fact of the matter is that Lucki challenges the course of direction that a rapper is meant to move toward. His career has seen creative highs of reinvention and sonic innovation just as well as mental lows, management changes, personal challenges, drug problems, and every other obstacle that you can think of. Lucki is a fighter at heart, and while he’s still able to see the light of day even through all of the crossfire, it should come as no surprise that the Chicago representative …

Night & I Need More – [Lucki]

With Freewave 3 on the way and Lucki in one of the most refined stages of his career, all eyes are ready to watch this Chicago-native take the throne right now. Working toward this goal, he’s been developing a stellar artist-director relationship with a visual artist by the name of Jake Osmun, and today, the two are back in the spotlight with two new videos for “Night” and “I Need More” from the “Freewave Files“, as noted in the descriptions. Translating Lucki’s ominous, brutally honest rhyming patterns with haunting imagery to match, the visuals for these two tracks are on another level. Osmun knows just how to bring such a unique sound to life on the screen, and “Night” and “I Need More” should be a reminder of why Freewave 3 is about to be an absolute highlight reel for Lucki upon its release. I could go on about these videos all day long, but I’ll just let you experience the magic for yourself. Click play on both visual offerings at the links below! “Night” Produced by 16yrold “I Need More” Produced by Plu20 Nash

@Night – [Lucki] x [16yrold]

Chicago legend and Lyrical Lemonade favorite Lucki teamed up with producer 16yrold for a brand new offering titled “@Night” and it’s not anything you want to miss out on. I have been a huge fan of Lucki’s music for years now going all the way back to the pre Alternative Trap days, but after listening to this new joint several times through I came to the quick conclusion that this is one of my favorite songs from him yet! The way that he glided over this absolutely menacing instrumental by 16yrold was impressive to say the least, I was getting more and more excited as I listened because he dropped memorable lyrics bar after bar the entire way through. Stream this brand new record below and if you like it be sure to share it with a friend.

I Need More – [Lucki]

It really shouldn’t surprise anyone when Chicago talent Lucki drops off new music, that we here at LL are quick to the trigger. Making his return to our pages today with his next offering titled I Need More, the Plu20 Nash-produced hit wastes no time getting to the point. Lasting just under 2 minutes, the cloudy instrumental was blessed with Lucki’s drippy lyricism on dirty divas, drama at his shows and of course, the preferred substances that he is in the need for. Following the @fuckoxy1-produced joint in 1 way (prove me right) from last month, the string of loosies from Lucki this year continues to grow at a rapid pace and you would have to think we are nearing another project from the self-proclaimed wokstar. Until that time, get familiar with the latest Lucki/ Plu20 connection in I Need More and let us know if you’re feeling it in the comments below!

Usual – [Da$H]

Da$H has been on an absolute tear lately, blessing our pages with the headline-grabbing singles “Summertime Horrors” alongside Lucki and “Bad Joke” just in the past few weeks. He’s truly in his bag in every sense of the phrase, and taking the spotlight yet again today arrives Da$H’s latest: a single entitled “Usual”. Produced by the hitmaker himself, Lord Fubu, this track takes to an increasingly energetic approach as compared to Da$H’s last few releases. His deliveries seem rejuvenated and his charisma emphasized, as rapidly-moving melodies clash against knocking drum patterns to make for an undeniable heater. That said, hearing a collaboration between Da$H and Lord Fubu is quite the occasion, so be sure to check out “Usual” at the link below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Summertime Horrors – [Da$H] ft. [Lucki]

Closing out the final weeks of summer and following up the song “Bad Joke“, a powerful joining of forces between Da$H and Lucki comes to the light today in the form a brand new, melancholic single, “Summertime Horrors”. Meshing the remarkably vivid lyrical capabilities of each artist, this track is a dream collaboration for any fans of either Da$H or Lucki. Both acts are able to package drug-induced emotion and internal struggle into easily accessible rhymes, and in doing so, “Summertime Horrors” features some wildly clever wordplay that can impress any listener. That said, this slow-burning release is the perfect soundtrack to the end of a late summer night, so be sure to click play below and let us know what you think in the comments!

1 Way (Prove Me Right) – [Lucki]

It goes without saying that Lucki is one of the most talented lyricists in the game right now. His music brings forth raw emotion in ways that very few other artists can achieve so impactfully, and with that, it only makes sense that the success has been rolling in for the Chicago native since the release of his most recent EP, Days Before II. Today, Lucki is back on our pages to unveil a brand new loose release entitled “1 Way (Prove Me Right)”. Produced by @fuckoxy1, this simplistic yet hard-hitting song is deeply ridden with drug-induced emotion and unwavering honesty. Lucki’s hypnotic deliveries weave through the mesmerizing instrumental without any friction, and all things considered, fans have received yet another dope single from the rising star. That being said, listen to “1 Way (Prove Me Right)” at the link below and let us know what you think in the comments!
