Lex Luger made such a huge impact on rap instrumentation that his sound was quickly swept from underneath him in the rush to imitate it. He's become increasingly quiet in the production game since his peak, but has been concentrating on vocals over the last little while.
Mac Miller on a Lex Luger beat? I guess crazier things have happened (like Mac teaming up with Rick Ross earlier this year), but still, this new Mack Maine track is bonkers for a number of reasons. "Living All Your Dreams" was produced by Lex and features Miller and 2 Chainz.
SpiT-Tacular hails from the Midwest, right outside of Chicago, and he makes his HotNewHipHop debut today with "100th Time". The 20-year-old emcee has a lightning quick flow on the song, and gets a major league feature from Lex Luger, who blesses the chorus and lays down a verse of his own.

Two weeks ago, revolutionary trap producer Lex Luger turned heads and raised eyebrows when he unveiled the Gangsta Boo-featuring "Legal," a song that found him rapping as well as producing. Now he's gone even further on "What U Got 2 Say," his third track as an MC, enlisting another producer to do the song's beat.
Although some producers will never cross over into rapping (DJ Mustard said in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club you'll never hear him rap, he's sticking to ad-libs), there's also a fair share of beatsmiths that dabble in rapping, and vice versa.
