Low Pros – “Who Wanna Play” (Feat. Que) Video

Fools Gold’s godhead A-Trak and Virginia rap producer Lex Luger make their return as the production supergroup Low Pros on “Who Wanna Play.” The track features rapper Que (“OG Bobby Johnson” still goes), and additional production from Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital and Brillz, continuing their tradition of enlisting rising Atlanta talents. Basically it’s an ominou… More »

Low Pros – “100 Bottles” (Feat. Travi$ Scott) Video (NSFW-ish)

Earlier this year, A-Trak and Virginia rap producer Lex Luger teamed up to form Low Pros, a duo whose music fuses both definitions of the term “trap music.” On “100 Bottles,” they teamed up with Travi$ Scott, a young Houston rapper and producer who’s all unstable energy and thus perfect for a sound like theirs.

Download Low Pros EP1

Earlier this year, A-Trak teamed up with the Virginia rap producer Lex Luger to form Low Pros, a new production duo that splits the difference between trap-rap and trap-rave. They’ve already released a few different songs with rappers: “Jack Tripper” with Young Thug and PeeWee Longway, “100 Bottles” with Travi$ Scott, “Muscle” with Juvenile. And… More »

Low Pros – “Muscle” (Feat. Juvenile)

If A-Trak seems, at first, to be the driving force behind Low Pros, his new duo with trap-rap producer Lex Luger, he sure looked like something else last week. Low Pros headlined the Fool’s Gold SXSW party, and A-Trak barely seemed to be there. Instead, he ceded center stage to Luger and Luger’s crew of… More »

Low Pros – “100 Bottles” (Feat. Travi$ Scott)

A-Trak recently joined forces with the great Virginia producer and Waka Flocka Flame collaborator Lex Luger to form the duo Low Pros, and “Jack Tripper,” the Young Thug/PeeWee Longway collab they used to announce their existence, was a thing of hectic and bass-heavy beauty. For “100 Bottles,” their second collaboration, they’ve teamed up with the… More »

Lo Pros (A-Trak & Lex Luger) – “Jack Tripper” (Feat. Young Thug & PeeWee Longway)

He’s been a dance-music headliner for years, but A-Trak was a DMC World Champion turntablist before he was old enough to drive, and now he’s getting back on his rap shit. He’s getting ready to release Federal Reserve, a collaborative EP with Cam’ron; they’ve already shared the excellent first single “Humphrey.” And now he’s teaming… More »

From T.I. To TNGHT: A Look At Trap Rave

Do a search for “trap” on SoundCloud and you’ll find more than 500 tracks uploaded with the tag in the last three days. What’s interesting, though, are the labels that show up with the most frequency in the similar tags section: “bass,” “club,” “dance,” “dj,” “dubstep,” and “electronic” appear right below the expected “rap,” “hip-hop,”… More »

Chief Keef – “Russian Roulette” (Feat. Fat Trel) Video

Chicago’s teenage rap phenomenon Chief Keef hooks up with like-minded DC rapper Fat Trel for “Russian Roulette,” a track produced by go-to street rap producer Lex Luger. It sounds pretty much exactly how you’d expect it to sound; gritty, pounding and driven over-the-top by Luger’s menacing drums. The accompanying video dabbles in Keef’s favored low-budget… More »

Hodgy Beats & Domo Genesis – “Timbs” (Produced By Lex Luger)

Last year, I interviewed Odd Future livewire Hodgy Beats and asked him about Odd Future’s since-relaxed policy about refusing to work with most outside collaborators. Hodgy said, “I’m not hating or anything, but I don’t want to be rapping over a Lex Luger beat. Why would I do that? I have my own beats.” Whe… More »

Giggs – “Hard 3style”

Giggs is the UK rapper whose gigs have become nearly impossible to catch on account of how interesting the UK police find his extra-curricular activities. As it goes, copious references to gangsta life pepper his tracks and track titles, as on “Gangsta Hop,” a cut featuring US dude du jour Waka Flocka Flame, appearing o… More »

Kanye & Jay-Z – “H.A.M.”

Spoiler: the title stands for “hard as a motherfucker.” The producer, Lex Luger, also produced My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’s bonus track “See Me Now” and much of Waka Flocka Flame’s Flockaveli. I hear more of the latter in this track, though I don’t think West and Jay-Z work well with the frenzied, over-the-top productio… More »
