Lucki Eck$ “Alternative Trap” Mixtape

Lucky Eck$ Alternative Trap mixtape cover

This past year has been an important one for the Chicago hip hop scene, with artists like Chief Keef, Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa all getting major buzz. It looks like the hot streak for the Windy City isn’t ending anytime soon. Meet Lucki Eck$, a teenage rapper whose new mixtape, Alternative Trap, dropped yesterday and is about to blow up your internet.

Unlike anything you’ve heard before, Alternative Trap is a sonic experience, filled with otherworldly beats and unique punchlines. The mixtape, as the name suggests, is a new twist on the trap sound and features production from Plu2o Nash, Hippie Sabotage, Hippie Dream, the Odd Couple, Doc, Mullato Beats, Nate Fox and Hytman. The tape is distinctly abstract, evolving from the sound of A$AP Mob and RVIDXR KLVN but expanding and reaching new melodic regions.

Check out the tape below and be on the lookout for more from this impressive up-and-comer.
