has been sober for over a year now.
at the height of his career, lex luger's phone rang non-stop. his early trap sound signalled a gear shift in rap music, helping several well known rappers build a successful template in the process. his name has been noticeably absent from the ledger, for the past five or so years. lex luger took a moment to share his account of what wrong in an interview with #thefader. incidentally, he isn't here to pitch a memoir, quite the opposite. luger is back on his grizzly, like he never skipped a beat.
luger told fader that at his worst, he was swallowing 5 to 6 #xanax
tablet a day, this before he sought help from a rehab facility. his drug addiction came at a time where he felt overwhelmed by the demands of profession and his fatherly responsibilities "it's like, alright, cool, i can do all of this, but then i'm missing out on my daughter's first day of school. i had a hard time balancing it because i was going hard at the music thing," luger confessed. "so i completely let go of music and was doing good with the family. now, i'm 27 and learning how to balance both at the same time." lex luger also shed a light on his falling out with fellow producer #southside, which he says is on the mend thanks to his sobriety. luger also listed producers he feels have taken up the mantle he left behind, artists like #pierrebourne, #metroboomin, #taykeith, #djmustard
and #mikewillmadeit. hopefully @lexlugertmog
can return to his former glory, he's only 27 years old, it's hard to believe.
