SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA – Lex Luger is largely responsible for trap music’s takeover of Hip Hop and urban contemporary radio. He created the beats of several hit singles for numerous rap heavyweights, including Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard In The Paint” by Waka Flocka Flame, Rick Ross’ “B.M.F.” featuring Styles P and JAY-Z and Kanye West’s “H.A.M.”
In 2011, the Virginia-born producer said he’d creatively cornered himself by crafting only trap beats. But, he now admits that he almost lost his thriving career altogether from drug addiction.
During a recent in-depth interview with FADER, the 808 Mafia production team co-founder details his career path after he moved from Atlanta to pursue his music career. He also expounded on how rap industry’s fast lifestyle almost made him lose his production sound thanks to a no-sleep work ethic.
“I was young and moving really fast,” Luger said. “So, I feel like I wasn’t even conscious some days, in some moments.”
He added, “That feeling man is a rush — like a drug. I was trying to be bigger than what I was, so I was working 10 times harder. I wasn’t sleeping, so I would lose it and just kinda drain out. My beats would sound shitty. I couldn’t perform.”
