Gray Matters, Luck-One, the Flu
1507 SE 39th Ave.
[HIP-HOP] Last year was another big year for local MC Luck-One. He released two new projects, both of which saw him teaming with a local producer to create fiercely meditative music. Luck was also as contentious as ever: He threatened retirement, made harsh comments about touchy situations like the Clackamas Town Center shooting and got into a well-publicized spat with Portland hip-hop scene flag-holder DJ Chill. Part of the rapper’s appeal, though, is his willingness to speak his mind in a poignant manner, so his actions hardly came as a surprise to his true fans. They welcomed the candor.
