Video: LUCKI – “Gemini Love“
The Chicago Rapper Enters Virgo Season With a Video For an Astrological Highlight From His Billboard Top 10-Charting Album s*x m*ney dr*gs
“a mesmerizing, unremittingly morose testament to Lucki’s own sneaky, sing-song catchiness. He’s been perfecting his wounded and woozy rap for almost a decade, and the result is so irresistible you might find yourself accidentally groaning.” – Pitchfork on FLAWLESS LIKE ME
“Lucki Can Tell Nothing But His Truth…Lucki is shameless about his pain. Whether the 22-year-old Chicagoan—born Lucki Camel Jr.—is rapping about his bouts with depression and anxiety, his role in sabotaging his romantic relationships, or his prescription drug addiction, he refuses to hide his flaws. His candor about his life lows has made him a relatable antihero to a loyal cult following of fans who regularly take to social media with comments like, ‘Lucki changed my life’ or ‘Lucki gets me’ whenever he releases new music or opens up about his struggles publicly.” – Pitchfork
“Lucki has been applying the truths of this life to his music for the better part of a decade.” – Complex
“Lucki has been building his resume for years, crafting understated, infectious tracks that have shades of fellow Chicagoans like Chief Keef and Supa Bwe, but a swagger and sensibility that is all his own.” – Pigeons & Planes
“Lucki’s music can feel like you’re about to be submerged in a swamp or like you’re about to fall asleep behind the wheel of the Lamborghini from Suicide Squad“ – The FADER
‘On this blessed day, we also get Days B4 III, the new full-length from Lucki, the muttering young cult-rap icon whose self-destructive lyrics have the power to punch you in your soul.” – Stereogum
Cultivating a rabid fanbase over a decade in the game, LUCKI has transformed into a commercial force without switching up his insular style. Sharing the latest video from his most successful project to date, s*x m*ney dr*gs, the Chicago rapper provides a peek inside his romantic life in “Gemini Love.” Blessed with a crystalline beat from Bhristo, J.Dolla & Maxvon, “Gemini Love” explores the deep-seated trust issues that prevent LUCKI from making new friends and fuel his hedonistic lifestyle: “Tell a m*********** I love ’em, starting to feel like extortion to me/I can’t slip up and just trust you, it’ll be a horror scene,” spits LUCKI. In the video, directed by Walker Andrews, LUCKI cycles through romantic partners as he takes time to rest in his L.A. mansion, flexing his diamond-studded watch and sipping from his styrofoam cup. He knows his vices won’t heal his deep-seated trauma, but he tries his best to enjoy the ride.
With production from Tay Keith, Brent Rambo, Rio Leyva and CXDY of Internet Money, Cash Cobain, Yung Icey, and many more, s*x m*ney dr*gs delves deep into LUCKI’s world of hazy hedonism, as the rapper crafts mantra-like bars that expose the emptiness within a life of fame and fortune. The follow-up to 2022’s successful, Billboard Top 20-charting FLAWLESS LIKE ME, s*x m*ney dr*gs is on track to be even bigger, with over 42 million streams across platforms in just its first three days of release, and over 135 million streams to date. Featuring a guest appearance from Detroit native Veeze, s*x m*ney dr*gs is available everywhere via EMPIRE.
LUCKI carried the momentum from FLAWLESS LIKE ME into 2023, selling out the 25-date, nationwide “FLAWLESS LIKE ME: The Made Martian Tour” in the winter and spring. LUCKI soon starts his stint as the primary support on Trippie Redd’s “Take Me Away Tour,” which kicks off later this week and criss-crosses the country for 24 dates.
With s*x m*ney dr*gs out now, the proud Chicago native plans to complete his evolution into one of his generation’s most vital artists. Stay tuned for more music and videos from Tune this year.

Cultivating an ever-growing following since he debuted in the rap game in 2013 at 17, LUCKI has earned glowing praise from both critics and industry figures, including shoutouts from Pharrell and Justin Timberlake. He’s collaborated in the past with the likes of A$AP Rocky, Chance The Rapper, Playboi Carti and many others. The rapper formerly known as Lucki Eck$ feeds his fans with a consistent output of boundary-pushing music that plumbs the depths of his soul.
LUCKI had a breakout year in 2019, during which Lucki collaborated with ChaseTheMoney and Earl Sweatshirt, released acclaimed projects Freewave 3 and Days B4 III, and earned praise from Pitchfork, who raved “Lucki’s music works so well in large part due to his ear for production, plodding hi-hats that make it feel like your brain is stuck in quicksand, and his eerie, doomsday melodies.” 2020 was another banner year for the young artist, featuring the release of his 12-track project Almost There, home to the fan favorite single “Faith.”
