Luckyiam Most Likely To Succeed
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Cornerstone R.A.S.-Legendary
From the Bay to L.A., few Cali hip-hop crews have achieved such indie success as the Living Legends. Smooth-flowed Legends co-founder Luckyiam (a.k.a. PSC) has a lot to do with that triumph. On his latest solo effort, Lucky is at the top of his game, revealing himself to be a remarkably versatile MC. While not quite the charismatic storyteller that Murs is, Lucky is equally adept at painting an honest portrait of his environment ("Tear Him Down"), uncovering record-industry realities ("Rap, Rap, Rap"), and attempting to figure out the key to relationships ("I Guess"). Moreover, the mostly in-house beats add some extra soul to this satisfying solo shot.
