Rap’s Total Package

From a New York Times magazine piece over the weekend I learn of the existence of a newly famous rap producer/impresario who goes by the name “Lex Luger.” A few observations:
– The story, in none of its 3,500 words, acknowledges the pro wrestler Lex Luger or the producer’s decision to use his name.
– Then again, the rap Lex Luger is only 20 years old; Luger’s wrestling heyday was over by the time he was five or six years old.
– When will Luger collaborate with Sting?
– Luger’s real name, “Lexus Lewis,” is a much cooler name than “Lex Luger.” It also sounds more like the name of another 1990s ring sport champion, Lennox Lewis.
No word on whether Luger may go out on tour; may I suggest the “Lex Express”?
