This week’s Soundcloud Rapper of the Week (SROTW) goes to LUCKI who’s been cultivating his own brand of self-proclaimed “alternative trap” out of Chicago’s underground. Along with a few other Chicago protégés, Lucki has benefitted from a quick feature with Chance and used it as a foothold to reach Soundcloud’s masses. Their track with Young Chop from two years ago “Stevie Wonder” absolutely bumps:
But LUCKI has been doing plenty in the past couple years to warrant further attention. Along with some other collaborations with the likes of Joey Purpp and Playboi Carti, LUCKI’s EP project FREEWAVE II has gotten some serious heat. The breakout track “Dirty Demons” and its positive Soundcloud reception might signal a new audience for what LUCKI refers to as “alternative trap”.
Lucki’s done more than enough to prove his worth following his feature with Chance and I certainly look forward to what this dude might cook up in the future. It’s fun to follow up with these young guns that Chance picks up out of the rough to see where they’re at now.

Hope you guys enjoy the tunes. Take it easy.
