The midwest has been fruitful when it comes to the music scene for a very long time and there’s no reason that their talent as a whole should be overlooked. Chicago, specifically, is in a lane of their own. From the older heads Twista, Common, Kanye West & Lupe Fiasco to the younger generation today, the greatness is inevitable. Today, one of Chicago’s youngest talents LUCKI steps up to the plate with the release of his new EP Almost There.
He picked the perfect time to drop some new music while we’re all on punishment so this is a great opportunity for him to efficiently reach a plethora of new ears.

While there may not be any flashiness or elegance within his personality or his music, LUCKI is in a lane of his own and that’s why he’s loved by so many. The way he breaks down his records to the gristle to get his stories across is something not many artists these days can do.
Acting as a placeholder for fans until his next project, Almost There is a phenomenal body of work. He doesn’t shy away from truths and his upfront, honest character easily stands out as he floats through each record. Almost There is laced with 12 joints in total and holds zero features, getting straight to the point.
The EP is filled with production that literally sounds like it’s from another dimension and they’re perfectly tailored for LUCKI’s style and delivery seeing as though one couldn’t picture another artist handling these beats the way he does. With the melodic synths and powerful 808’s going hand in hand, this serves as the perfect foundation for LUCKI to do what he does best — DELIVER.
Through his career thus far, Chicago’s rising icon has tapped into his strengths and experiments in ways that hasn’t been tried elsewhere. Tune in to Almost There below and spread the word!
