Lady Luck (born 1982) is the stage name of rapper Shanel Jones.

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] After several arguments with the label, Luck was released from her Def Jam contract three years later. Although she recorded an album, Turn My Mic On in 2001, it was not released. 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]
