As one of Rad lucks fans posted in the comments section on YouTube, “got me dancing in the living room”, the song “too lit” is so exciting to listen to and with its fresh sound makes it one of the most appealing hip hop music videos of an upcoming artist in 2020.
In order to further complement his hit single, the Charlotte native dropped a music video directed by himself.

With various pans in and out of the camera and several wonderful still shots, the video is its own aesthetic in a wonderful way. With such an already great song, the video needed to match, and indeed, it did just that.
As an upcoming artist with limited resources, it seems a bit limited to what he can work with. I think this song has some good musical qualities but needs a better musical arrangement. The singer has a distinctive and attractive vocal tone, but is drowned out by the powerful instrumental accompaniment.
The singer should be allowed to dominate the song without having to compete with the accompaniment. The lyrics seem quite interesting, but can’t always be heard clearly because of the strong vocal-instrumental balance. It’s quite a tuneful song, though, and could be easily improved with a more tasteful instrumental arrangement.
Ultimately with the newest addition to hip hop, Rad Luck, the future of tomorrow’s next rap star. With an obviously strong artistic compass, Rad luck is showing great potential coupled with his impressive ability to write his own songs. Just like the title of the song, Rad Luck’s future is too lit.
