Lex Luger

Lexus Arnel Lewis (born March 6, 1991) professionally known as Lex Luger, is an American hip hop record producer from Suffolk, Virginia currently based in Atlanta. He is signed to 1017 Brick Squad Records and Brick Squad Monopoly. In addition, he co-founded the American hip hop production team 808 Mafia with Southside. Luger is also a member of the hip hop production duo Low Proswith A-Trak and the VABP (Virginia Boyz Productionz), a production group that he founded back in high school.

Luger’s austere and utilitarian trap sound has been well known for his heavy use of hard hitting 808′s, crisp snare drums, frantic synthesizers, sinister and rhythmic Danny Elfman-like bombastic ominous orchestration of synthesized brass, stringed, woodwind, and keyboard instruments commonly incorporated throughout his productions.

At the 2011 BET Awards, Luger won the award for Producer of the Year.

In early February 2014, Luger joined forces with Canadian DJ/producer A-Trak under the moniker Low Pros, with the intention of releasing a collaborative project. Their first release was “Jack Tripper”, a drug-addled trap song featuring Brick Squad affiliates PeeWee Longway and Young Thug, who had just risen to popularity at the time due to the success of his 2013 singles “Stoner” and “Danny Glover”.
