Derek "Lucky D" Samples



From Pontiac, MI comes rapper/writer LUCKY D with his debut album, CURSED FROM BIRTH ( produced by multi-platimun producer Mike Mosley of Steady Mobbin Productions based in Sacremento, CA (who produced hits for 2pac, E40, Too Short, TQ, Death Row Records, CBo, And many more) and re-released on Lucky D’s label, Blast-4-Me Records.

Based on his years as a major league member of a Michigan-based street/drug gang and being incarcerated for almost twenty years on a murder charge, LUCKY D tells real-life stories of survival, redemption and acceptance. He reels off tales of how a real drug dealer lives his life day by day while showing his love for family and the Almighty with tracks such as “Lord If You Hear Me” and “My Angel” - the latter dedicated to his mother.

The title, CURSED FROM BIRTH, comes from being born into sin with only the acceptance of God into your life will one become reborn. And LUCKY D is ready to share his experiences with listeners.

The album is slated for independent release via digital download through Itunes, Google Play, Iheartradio, Amazon, CD Baby and many more online retail stores. In addition, selected snippets will be available via social media networks (Facebook, Instagram,Pintrest, and Twitter) as well as websites such as You Tube and Dailymotion.
