Video: Lucki Eck$, "Count On Me"

In a year where Chicago rap grew exponentially more unpredictable, newcomer Lucki Eck$ quietly delivered one of the city's more successfully left-of-center tapes with this summer's Alternative Trap. He's an enigmatic figure in the Chicago rap landscape—less brash than the drill figureheads, less aggressively relatable than the Save Money crew, communicating in symbols rather than tangibles. He's finally released a flickering video for tape opener "Count On Me." It's at once intimate and isolating, like walking through your childhood hometown late at night and wondering what it is to belong somewhere. The Hytman beat feels like Boards of Canada flirting with trap (but like, for real).
