It’s only been less than a month since Swizz Beatz’s epic beat battle against Just Blaze, but it already looks like the next historic producer matchup is upon us. Recently, Lex Luger challenged fellow producer Southside to a beat battle for a prize of $50,000.
In a video uploaded to Instagram last week, Southside informed fans that he was privately contacted by Luger about taking part in a beat battle. The producer seemed unimpressed with Luger’s initial request of $50,000 and suggested that those taking part in the battle put up $100,000 instead.
“So, I wake up. I got a DM from Lex Luger talking about a beat battle with me, Metro, and Sonny,” the “Trap Niggas” producer said in the video, clutching on a fat wad of cash. He continued, “Lex, this is $50,000… until you got a whole 100 on you you can gamble with, bro, don’t hit me talking about no beat battle … put a whole hundred on the table and we can beat battle.”
Luger has since accepted Southside’s offer to battle for $100K, in a series of videos uploaded to Instagram. “Sizzle, call my phone. You want a beat battle? Metro? Sonny Digital? Who else? Cause we big boy pimpin’ out here,” Lex Luger says as he flashes a wad of cash.
Southside later pressed him on Twitter: “I tell u what tell a nigga get the hunnid grand and show it to me @SmokedOutLuger and not 6k and a 2003 bens and I’m on.”
