In The Lab with Lex Luger

May 5th, 2016

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Warning—Lex Luger is locked and loaded. The Virginia-bred producer—best known for early ‘10s bangers like Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard in the Paint,” Rick Ross and Styles P’s “B.M.F.,” and Jay Z and Kanye West’s “H.A.M.”—is still hard at work in 2016 pumping out next level joints. And his latest placement, A$AP Ferg’s collabo with ScHoolboy Q “Let It Bang,” is further proof that Lex Luger is an upper echelon beat king poised to push the limits more than ever this year.

For our latest In The Lab, we connected with Lex Luger to discuss what he uses to craft his tracks, what the vibe is like when he’s creating, and what he’s learned over the years about working with artists. Plus, he runs through the making of his most notable songs (including the story behind his Electric Ladyland studio session with Kanye, Jay, and Beyonce), discusses how spending time with guys like Juicy J and A-Trak affected his outlook on beatmaking, and breaks down his new instrumental project, Lex Luger Experience: The Tour, Vol. 1. Roll up peoples, this is a good one.
