At age 17, LUCKI — formerly known as Lucki Eck$ — was pioneering the genre he had dubbed “alternative trap.” Though he’s never made the mainstream, the Chicago rapper’s abstract brand of spectral trap has since been embraced by artists like Earl Sweatshirt and Danny Brown.  LUCKI’s latest mixtape Freewave 3 is his most vivid, assured work yet. The record features production by ChaseTheMoney and Mulatto Beats, as well as Sweatshirt, on the dense, drawling track “All In.” Listen below.
