Lucki at the Fillmore

On Mar 27, 2023, rapper Lucki came to Silver Spring for his Flawless Like Me: The Made Martian Tour, alongside rapper Eem Triplin. Lucki last made an appearance in Silver Spring about a year ago on April 20, 2022.

Lucki is an American rapper from Chicago, Illinois. He is considered to be one of the most influential in the underground scene.

Although Lucki’s career dates back to 2013, he didn’t release his debut album Freewave 3 until 2019. The project includes tracks like β€œAll In,” produced by Earl Sweatshirt, β€œPeach Dream,” β€œPolitics,” and hit track β€œMore Than Ever.” This was followed by his next project Days B4 III later that year, which contained hit song, β€œ4 The Betta.” This project gave Lucki a bigger name than before, with it being his first charting project. Later in his career, he continued to release mixtapes and a collab tape with producer F1lthy.

Lucki released his second studio album Flawless Like Me on September 23, 2023, which is the associated album for his nationwide tour.

At around 8:30 pm, the show began to start but it began with a DJ named β€œMichael” to warm up the crowd before the opener Eem Triplin. The DJ played tracks from artists, Yeat, Playboi Carti, and more. As for his job of warming up the crowd, the DJ did a good job. The track selection made the crowd very hype before the opener, and not only that, the DJ effectively interacted with the crowd.

Lucki’s First DJ
Eem Triplin

At around 8:37 pm, the opener Eem Triplin came on stage starting off with his song β€œBounce Back.” The crowd showed it’s energy just from the first song. Though being a short set lasting around 20 mins, Eem Triplin performed really well as well as the crowd. He performed hit songs, β€œJUST FRIENDS ?” and β€œLOUIE V” which of course got the crowd singing the most. It’s good to see the love for Eem Triplin after he performed in front of only 13 people at Rolling Loud last year. His performance was good, his sang well and he was also good at interacting with the crowd. He grabbed recording phones multiple times and gave high fives to people.

As the song β€œJUST FRIENDS ?” was beginning to play, an incident occurred in the crowd after Eem Triplin attempted to start a moshpit. The show was paused momentarily and was handled quickly, letting Eem Triplin finish his set.

At 9:30 pm, another DJ came on stage to once again warm up the crowd, for this time being for the main act Lucki. This set was way longer than the last DJ, with it lasting about 15 minutes. While there was an attempt to start off crazy, the crowd was pretty dead from the previous set. The crowd came back to life again later in the set. The DJ played tracks from Chief Keef, Playboi Carti, and Lil Uzi Vert. This warm up was so much fun, so wild, and honestly better than the last DJ. The song selection was very good too, songs like Ken Carson’s β€œRock N Roll,” and Lil Uzi Vert’s β€œJust Wanna Rock,” really brought out the energy.

Second DJ

At 9:45 pm, Lucki came to stage, making the crowd go crazy and loud. He started with his song β€œNew Drank” and the crowd was already getting loud with his appearance. Lucki’s set lasted around 40 mins, which isn’t too common since the past concerts I’ve been to lasted around an hour for the main artist. With Lucki’s music, it varies, one song can be very hype while another can be chill. Regardless, it was still fun moshing to some songs and singing our hearts out to others. Lucki’s performance was okay in my opinion, while he was consistent with his singing, he didn’t do much to interact with the crowd, except for signing some shirts. For the most part, the DJ was the one interacting with the crowd. Lucki performed tracks from his latest album Flawless Like Me and hit songs like β€œSunset” and β€œ4 The Betta.”

Once the show ended, fans attempted to get Lucki back on stage by chanting β€œone more song!” However it was unsuccessful after the DJ said, β€œI’m sorry y’all I think he left the building, it’s not happening.”

Out of all the concerts I’ve been to, this has been one of the more calmer ones. There’s nothing wrong with that. With what Lucki has to offer, he can still make a good and fun show, and for that I would totally go again. And to those who don’t listen to Lucki’s music, I would definitely recommend taking a listen.
