Born and raised in Fortworth, TX, Lucci and I talked about his life growing up in the 817. Humble beginnings helped shape his musical career when he moved to Atlanta, to pursue music full time. I asked him about foreign money, Lucci said it started as a label, and he decided that he was more significant than the brand. “I took a liking to knowledge… and everywhere I went I had a message, so I believe I’m the message carrier.”
A master in punchy and mesmerising singles, Solo has a very eclectic musical style. He can demolish a pop track and spit bars on a trap record. Lucci featured on Chris Brown’s “Wrist” and Young Thug’s “Special.” During his cameo on Love & Hip Hop’s fourth season.
We then chatted about future artists he would like to collaborate with, and talked about his idol Lil Wayne and saying he is the goat. “He did so much for the game musically and even the culture. I think that’s why so many of these guys got soo many tattoos…And opened up to a lot of stuff like skateboarding.”
Lucci has released his latest project titled “The recipe”. I gifted him with an Australian oven mitt in honour of the release. He then tried an Australian tradition spread “Vegemite”. Lucci said “That sounds like some vegetarian shit” and was quick with correcting me, teaching me his version of a “spread”. You can make your very own version of the “Lucci prison spread” using the following simple ingredients: Ramen noodles, slice cheese, Doritos and a plastic bag!
We finished off by tackling some Australian slang and talked about our cultural differences. Lucci even got him a blue koala side-kick which he named “Crippy-Mon-Grippy.”
