Chicago underground icon turned national rap mainstay, LUCKI, has returned with his highly-anticipated new album GEMINI!— out now. The project boasts features from A-listers FutureVeezeRylo Rodriguez, and 42 Dugg, as well as production from sonic tastemakers Tay KeithWheezySouthside, and Bobby RapsGEMINI! arrives on the heels of the announcement that LUCKI’s first US headlining tour, The Gemini Tour, will kick off on July 18th in Raleigh, NC. Produced by Live Nation, the 27-date tour will make stops in Miami, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Boston, Brooklyn, and more before wrapping up on September 7th in Atlanta, GA. The recently-released 2-pack of singles titled 2 Faced, Pt. 2 (the Coupe-produced “Heavy On My Heart” and the Brent Rambo-produced “Courtesy Of”) offered the first glimpse into LUCKI‘s follow-up to 2023’s s*x m*ney dr*gs, with the former serving as an upbeat outing buoyed by LUCKI‘s candid bars over a soulful instrumental while the latter is a hard-hitting victory lap draped in his distinct raspy flow. A longtime staple of Chicago’s underground scene, LUCKI’s hazy cloud rap confessionals saw the then-teenager grow a cult following in the Windy City and beyond before garnering mainstream recognition with his 2022 debut album FLAWLESS LIKE ME (which had appearances from Future and Babyface Ray) and hit track “New Drank” (200M+ Streams)GEMINI! marks LUCKI’s first full-length outing since the aforementioned s*x m*ney dr*gs and arrives on the heels of a high-profile appearance on “Broke phone” (7M+ Streams) from Veeze’s 2023 album Ganger as well as a strong run of 2024 singles, including “PAIDNFULL”“COLORFUL DRUGS”, and most recently “All Love”, where he linked with Lyrical Lemonade for a Cole Bennett-directed music video, as well as a guest outing on Southside’s latest track “Elegant”.

LUCKI’s fourth full-length album GEMINI! marks the entry point into what will be a busy summer for the Chicago artist. He’s currently slated to make appearances at this weekend’s Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash as well as Rolling Loud before embarking on his nationwide headlining Gemini Tour — with a fall European tour also on the horizon. An artist as multifaceted as his star sign, LUCKI has grown from an underground Chicago mainstay into a critically-acclaimed international icon, using hazy cloud rap confessionals to pave the way for the sound of modern Hip-Hop. With his GEMINI! era officially in motion, LUCKI is continuing to assert his legacy while proving just how far his movement has carried over the past decade.
