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.
