Biography[edit]

Lucky Luciano began freestyling with his boys in the hood in 1996. Eventually, the public began to take notice of Lucky from his works on a two-song demo which included early hits Out On Bond and H-Town.[1] A copy of the demo given to Charles Chavez led to his first record deal with Latium Records and features on the Latin World Down South Compilation. Lucky Luciano's first album on the label released in 2001 was entitled Lucky Me.[2]

Teaming up with national recording artists such as Baby Bash and South Park Mexican, led to Lucky's appearance on SPM's hugely successful The Purity Album.[3] His popularity and appeal quickly grew beyond Latino/Hispanic artists and audiences as evidenced by Houston DJ 'Mad Hatta' offering him a guest spot on his album entitled Can I Live.[4] In 2002, Lucky left Latium Records and signed with Dope House Records. In just three short years, he had been featured on over 20 albums. Lucky also continues to grind on the streets by making underground CD's and mixed tapes with his crew Unseen Entertainment as well as with other popular Texas artists.[5]

Lucky spent several months in the studio preparing for the Summer 2003 release of his album entitled You Already Know.[6] Lucky Luciano received "Album of the Year" for his album Pimps Up Hoez Down at the 2006 Texas Latin Rap Awards.[7] Lucky Luciano was named "Artist of the Year" at the 2009 Texas Latin Rap Awards.[8] In 2009, Lucky also organized and produced the "The Houston Latin Mic Pass" featuring many underground Houston artists.
