Samy Sorge (not Samuel) (born 1977), commonly known as Samy Deluxe, and occasionally as Sam Semilia, is a German hip hop artist and producer from Hamburg. He is one of Germany’s most successful solo rap musicians while also releasing albums as a member of two separate crews, Dynamite Deluxe (with DJ Dynamite aka Joni Rewind and Tropf) and Asd (with Afrob). He recently started his own record label, Deluxe Records. The beats of his record "Verdammtnochma" (Goddamnit!) were mainly made by US producers, which gives the record a very American sound.
