HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists and producers ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed. You'll be able to check out some of their best work, and we'll break down what makes them great by category. Throughout the article, you'll find links to hear more from the artist or producer, and you can leave suggestions in the comments letting us know who we should profile in the future.

In this week's edition, we head to Chicago to meet Lucki Eck$, whose Body High project just hit the streets and we honestly can't take it out of rotation. He's the youngest On The Come Up artist so far, at just 18 years old. What he lacks in years, he makes up for in uniqueness, and somehow comes off sounding like a seasoned veteran. We'll break down his whole story for you, plus introduce you to a lot of his dope music.
