Lex Luger Discusses Feeling Like He Was Blackballed From Hip Hop

The Suffolk-raised producer discusses his current relationships with Waka Flocka, Debra Antney, and Southside.

(AllHipHop News) Take a look at Lex Luger's production discography and you'll see that the Virginian crafted the beats for Waka Flocka Flame's "Hard in da Paint," Rick Ross' "B.M.F.," and The Throne's "H•A•M." However, Luger's profile on the radio seemed to decline after 2011.

DJ Smallz spoke to Lex about the possibility he was blackballed from the rap industry. During the video interview, the 27-year-old veteran shared his view on what happened to his career.

"I felt like I've been blackballed from Hip Hop. Not any other genre, just Hip Hop music. Like, 'Don't do that with him because he's this way or he's that way,'" said Luger. "I don't really know, but I would reach out to people and get a certain response or get no response at all. That's what n*ggas mean by 'blackballed.' That's what they're talking about."

Lex went on to say he has righted his wrongs with people like Waka's mother/artist manager Debra Antney, fellow record producer Southside, and production team 808 Mafia. He added, "I did believe I was blackballed, but I don't see that anymore. I just keep going."

According to reports, Luger was once hospitalized for a mental health evaluation. The Low Pros member also battled drug addiction, but he claims to be sober now.
