Lex Luger — Биография (Статья 2014)
Lexus Lewis (born March 6, 1991) better known by his stagename Lex Luger, is an American record producer from Suffolk, Virginia.
Luger started his career by playing the drums and learned about beats, measures, and bars. Then he started working with turntables. Music Generator was a game for PlayStation 2, and he would make beats on it. He would then move to a PC-based program and would get a used MPC 2000 sampler from his uncle. His friend Black then introduced him to Fruity Loops, the music-production software. The first beat he heard that he made on the radio was the instrumental of Waka Flocka’s “Hard in the Paint.” He was in Atlanta and just happened to have the radio loud enough to hear the beginning of the song. Also while in Atlanta, he got a phone call from Kanye West. He did not even realize who he was talking to for about 30 minutes. Once realizing who it was, Lex was excited and agreed to fly to New York to work with Kanye. He played him many different beats and was surprised that Kanye liked certain ones. He would eventually leave Kanye with eight beats, one of them being the beat of the single “HAM.” Lex would call the beat a movie, stating how Kanye added a lot of other elements of the song that made it what it is.
He produced tracks on Rick Ross’s Teflon Don, Waka Flocka Flame’s Flockaveli (on which he produced 11 of the 17 songs),Slim Thug’s Tha Thug Show, and Kanye West’s and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne. He is noted for using impossible-to-play drum-machine programming that utilizes the sounds of a Roland TR-808 in a fashion for which the original machine was never designed. He records for Mizay Entertainment.Luger has also worked with artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Soulja Boy, Snoop Dogg, and Tyga.
