In the face of early challenges, including his father’s imprisonment and an enforced separation from his family by the Department of Human Services (DHS), Lecky found solace in music.

Despite his success, Lecky remains ambitious and focused on furthering his musical prowess. Much to the delight of his fans, he confirmed the release of his next album, “Always & Forever Vol. 1,” slated for November 8, 2024. Preceding this, a new single “Midas Touch” is set to launch in June 2024.

Beyond his individual career, Lecky is embedded in the Melbourne hip-hop community as a staple member of the collective LeckyENT. Still, his collaborative aspirations extend globally, expressing a desire to work alongside prominent producers worldwide.
