Rich the Kid – “Lucky 7” review

This is the debut EP from Queens rapper Rich the Kid. Coming to my attention in 2018 off the viral single “New Freezer”, his popularity would eventually peak with his first 2 full-length albums The World is Yours & The World is Yours 2. He would leave Interscope Records shortly after & team up with Republic Records for his previous album Boss Man but since he’s completely independent as of this year, Rich the Kid is celebrating by dropping Lucky 7.

The EP kicks off with “Split”, where Rich gets materialistic over a bland instrumental. The next song “Laughin’” with DaBaby sees the 2 talks about getting hoes over a Medieval-sounding beat while the track “Money Machine” talks about not going broke again over a generic beat. The song “Boom Boom” with Lil Mosey finds the 2 talking about having shooters over an intoxicating instrumental with some heavy bass while the track “Right” rambles about nothing sex over an ethereal instrumental from DJ Spinz. The penultimate song “Nasty” with Flo Milli, Mulatto & Rubi Rose sees the 4 getting raunchy over a vibrant Buddah Bless beat then the closer “Too Blessed” with Quavo & Takeoff of the Migos finds the trio talking about their gratefulness over an woodwind-infused instrumental from DJ Durel.

I wasn’t expecting much from this new EP & unsuprisingly, I didn’t get a whole lot out of it at all. It’s overloaded with features, Rich the Kid’s lyrics are shallow as Hell & the production ranges from being mediocre to forgettable.

Score: 2/5
