Lexus Lewis, better known by his stagename Lex Luger, got started playing the drums and learned about beats, measurements and bars. Then he started working with turntables. Music Generator was a game for Playstation 2, and he would make beats on it. He then moved to a PC-based program and would get a used MPC 2000 drum machine 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 to 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 would eventually leave Kanye with eight beats, one of them being the beat for the single “HAM”. Lex would call the beat a “movie,” stating how Kanye added a lot of other pieces to the song that made it what it is. He has produced tracks on Rick Ross’s Teflon Don, Waka Flocka Flame’s Flockaveli (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.
Haute Sauce is Seattle’s home for Hip Hop and dance music on Saturday nights, with performances from artists ranging from Cam’ron to Metro Boomin to Benzi.
