Biography

The Legendary Traxster (born Samuel Lindley; July 14, 1973) is songwriter, rapper and record producer. A native of Chicago, he is best known as a producer for Twista, Do or Die and Ludacris. He is the owner and CEO of CWAL Records.

The Legendary Traxster began his career in the rap duo "D to tha S", releasing two maxi-singles, "Doomsday" (1994) and "My Brothaz Keepa" (1996). He is best known as producer for rapper Twista and rap group Do or Die, producing several albums including the platinum-selling "Picture This". "Picture This" is notable for introducing Twista to the mainstream, particularly on the album's centerpiece "Po Pimp". Twista also figures prominently on other Traxster beats on the album, including "Money Flow" and "Paperchase". Traxster also produced Twista’s "Adrenaline Rush" in its entirety, six tracks on his 2009 release "Category F5" and ten tracks on his 2010 album "The Perfect Storm".

The Legendary Traxster is credited for helping to create the Chicago hip hop sound: slow, dark, bass heavy grooves, with wild drums and running hi-hats, to match the triple time rhyme patterns of the rappers. Big Sean, T.I., Chris Brown, Waka Flocka, Ray J, Yo Gotti, Lil Boosie, Cam'ron, Scarface, Bun B, Mystikal, E-40, WC, C-Bo, Static Major, Tech N9ne, Mystikal, The Outlawz, Crucial Conflict, Prozak, Triple Darkness, Psychodrama, E-Dub and Snypaz have all used Traxster production.
