We had the good fortune of connecting with Lucky C. and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lucky, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success would be the desire for more. I have always made sure to take the time to learn/study so I could perfect my craft. Early on, that’s all I did. I was like a sponge soaking up as much game as I could, good and bad. I used that as motivation to want better, to be better. I used that energy and hunger and put it all into building myself and the brand, with integrity.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I take pride in knowing that my DJ style is unique. It was challenging at first because when I started, social media wasn’t the main tool. DJ’n with laptops was like a joke to a lot of older DJs. I really had to learn the game but set myself apart at the same time. And when people are used to a certain style, it’s hard to make them adapt. But I just kept “sharpening my tools” and eventually used everything to my advantage.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If we are going to float around the city, there are few spots we could go. We gotta stop by Au Bon Gout, get some Haitian food in North Miami. Or we could go by World Famous House of Mac. Or hit The Licking. Either way, we gonna eat good. If you want some good healthy food options, got Pretty Healthy in Miami Gardens or Smoothie Express in Miami Shores For the nightlife, we gotta go by Da Cave in North Miami or Premiere Lounge in Pembroke Pines. The vybes are unmatched. Grown and sexy, amazing music, food and drinks. Then the after party always ends at the strip club. We goin the Office no matter what day or time.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help and guidance of the original Jam Squad DJs. Sam Sneak, DJ Fatt Boi, DJ BJ305.. these guys taught me the game and how to maneuver with people in South Florida. My mentor, PJ Da DJ, taught me about life, how to be a man and how music relates to it all. DJ Nasty305 has always been like that OG that has always looked out, even if I didn’t want to hear it. Jill Strada, PD for 99Jamz, took a chance on a hometown kid with a dream and I’ll always be grateful for that.
