why them n*ggas aint poppin like lex luger then? U know how many n*ggas blatantly jacked Kanye, Timbo and any other hot producer out's sound and went nowhere with it? Y'all are getting "influenced by" confused with jacking styles. If he was indeed stealing Shawty Redd's or D. Rich's sound they would be the one's everyone is running to, instead I rarely hear a track from them nowadays.
Honestly I can tell a Lex Luger track from A Shawty Redd track from a D Rich track and I'm pretty sure EVERYONE can too. Why wasn't nobody sayin "Damn this must be produced by Shawty Redd/D Rich" when the Lil Wayne and Rick Ross dropped when according to yall he jacked them? The only similarities are they all use horns and make "trap beats". I never heard a Shawty Redd track sound like BMF and I never heard a Lex Luger beat that sounds like Hypnotize.
Dog, the reason Lex is poppin is b/c artists are trying to ride his wave--and Lex is providing them beats free of charge. Redd, on the otherhand, is about that check--AND I'm pretty sure his beats run waaaay higher than Lex's, so ofcourse he's not gonna be poppin like that ... Not everyone can get a Redd beat.
& that "influenced by" & "jacking" ref is a stretch. You're deaf if u don't think he bit D.Rich's style TO THE T & ran with it. Now he's talking like he's the Gahd of "trap beats"...
When Lex 1st started making noise ppl were infact gettin him mixed up with Redd/D.Rich--or would call him a knock-off.
The only reason ppl aren't saying it now is b/c dude is on his run right now, so it's pretty likely to be his track--and he has a tag ppl can put him to...
