Shanell Jones (born 1983), better known by her stage name Lady Luck, is an American hip hop recording artist from Englewood, New Jersey.

Luck signed a five-album record deal with Def Jam worth between half a million and a million dollars at the age of 17 on the strength of several freestyles that she did for New York radio station WQHT-FM.[1] Luck was the subject of a feature in The New Yorker and a series of articles in The Source, which ran monthly installments on her career.[1][2]

Lady Luck was featured in the 2000 documentary film of Jay-Z's 1999 tour, Backstage.[3]
