Just Derek is one of three Artist under Black Luxury The Collective, that he is the founder of. Black Luxury The Collective (BLX) released his first official project October 2015 entitled “Make It Happen”. This project gives you his stance on where he’s at and where he’s heading. The opening of the CD starts with some Soul Food to deliver thoughts on where his current relationships are and that he understands from this point forward things can or will change. From there its a complete ride of a few club bangers, but more introspective records explaining his emotions, peoples doubt, situations with a lover or two, and his aspirations to be somebody.

Just Derek is just starting and has a major goal he has set out to prove. The goal is to prove there is more to the Bay Area than what people think for those who have not grown up here and solidify that they are a staple to the entertainment industries. Setting out on his journey with the motto, “Be Happy It Drives People Crazy”, he says theres a bright future ahead for him and Black Luxury The Collective. - Artist Online Promotions

Still working on that hot first release.



Fairfield, California Rapper / producer/ vocalist Just Derek (born Derek Freeman) never knew his love for music until his first concert in 2004. Thinking he was born to play basketball and go to school for law diverted his thoughts from music but always found a way back to it through family influence.

Enduring great pain with a broken jaw, JD was forced to utilize his time differently for a long while, as sports was not an option. This is when music consoled him and began to flourish from within. Years down the road, JD has found success through the college circuits and accolades with press outlets. 

The duality of the Fairfield native deals with addictions as everyone else does, while still navigating a flourishing business life in music. 2018 is the year he plans to follow up his buzz worthy songs You Don't Know, Guap Girls, and Loaded. This is the year of duality for him.
