Chicago rapper Lucki Eck$ has been pretty prolific in the last year. He dropped the mixtape X last June, followed by his EP Free Wave in October, not to mention his “Freewave” freestyle series. Now he's back with more new music to share. Today, he dropped the project Son of Sam, a 7-track offering builds upon his signature syrupy, experimental sound. He recruits New Jersey rapper Da$h as well as New York's A$AP Ant, but handles the rest of the project on his own.
The majority of the tape is dark, with Eck$ spitting over hazy, haunting beats. It's certainly not destined for the radio, but his slurred, macabre style certainly has its appeal. At times, his voice can even sound more like another part of the beat than something totally distinct from it. It might sound odd, but that's all part of his dark appeal.
