They say, "A natural hustler isn't created, but born to overcome any obstacle!" As a child of three brothers and one sister, AK Lucci had no choice but to use his natural instinct to defeat the odds. Born December 29th in Dayton,Ohio, AK always had a knack for getting money and providing for his family. His first hustle was buying blowpops for 10 cents and then flipping them for 25 cents a piece in 7th grade. Growing up as a class clown, people found themselves easily lured to AK; which allowed him to get money with little effort or stress.
Through several drastic situations in his inner-city neighborhood in Dayton, AK found an interest hustling narcotics. With the troubles of the dope game, he found himself moving to Atlanta with his older brother to embrace a new lifestyle. After studying the Atlanta night scene and culture, AK started promoting parties in some of the city's most respected nightclubs with several major artists. At these events, he would network and politic with industry executives, djs' and celebrities with a strong fascination with music. In 2005 he met neighborhood legend John "Hustleman" Que that later took a strong interest in AK and supported him in pursuing a career in the industry.

Some of these artist include Lil John, Devin Da Dude, The Youngbloods, 8ball & MJG, Da Brat and Three 6 Mafia. In 2008, AK met with hip-hop mogul and friend of the stars Mark "Biddy" Barnes.
