Three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), a new artist is featured on's The Break. An ideal destination for fans, artists, and industry members, The Break showcases up and coming talent, giving a brief introduction on the artist or group, and highlighting some of their standout music. Each month, industry insiders will team with XXL to rate and comment on the submissions.

For the month of April, rising producer who's crafted joints for Rick Ross and Meek Mill ("Errday"), 50 Cent ("Outlaw"),  Fabolous ("Y'all Don't Hear Me Tho") and more, Cardiak—whom will serve as one of three judges—checked out the section to see what yesterday's talent (Bad Lucc) had to offer.

Bad Lucc "Where U From" (to see more from Bad Lucc, click here)

I feel like as an artist Bad Lucc has the potential to go places. His production and visuals are very simular therefore he should look into networking with other producers and directors. His track record speaks for itself as far as who he has worked with. My advice is to keep up his grind and the rest should fall into place.

A 'Standout' track from Bad Lucc would be "Bang That S***." This has all the right elements a single needs. It shows the background and style of the artist and simply put, the shit bangs. The song shows his originality and creativity and could get spins. The song that stood out least to me was "Gangstas". Not like its anything wrong with the hardcore music, it just doesn't sell or get pushed as much. The track was ok, it just wasn't his best.
But if he keeps his head up, keeps his grind up, show a little diversity but also stay true to himslef he will go places.
