I love everything about Hip Hop, especially rap. Like every great rap mogul has reigned and stated, Tupac is our all time favorite. But today, I am not here to talk about Pac. The blog daddy is here to talk about a three-time GRAMMY winner, an accomplished actor and a successful entrepreneur, Christopher ‘Ludacris’ Bridges.
Here are three reasons why we all should actually respect the man and give him some credit for still going on in the music industry.
I’m not against Kanye, or Hova or Weezy, if that’s what you are thinking; but I would like people to listen to Ludacris again. The man didn’t win three GRAMMYs for nothing. Luda is still throwing some very artful records. You just need to have ears on him.
From his last mixtape 1.21 GW: Back To The First Time, I still love his songs ‘Say It To My Face’, ‘I Ain’t The One’ and ‘Save It For Another Day’
Heck, Weezy scored a million downloads on his Dedication 5 mixtape within three days. And when it comes to Luda, there are many people saying, and I quote, “I had no idea Luda was still killin’ them mixtapes!”
The man is a Hip Hop legend. If not today, then at least back in the day they used to know him because he represented the Dirty South more successfully than anybody else could.
I read some facts about Luda. The man was the ONLY rapper to give 29 Top 10 Hip Hop bangers for Bilboard’s R&B/Hip Hop chart. His record has now been broken by Weezy, who has thirty tracks to his credit.
So Luda was interviewed earlier and he told that Anita Baker is definitely going to be on the rap legend’s new LP. He told that the song will be about his father, who passed away in 2007.
Luda has since then been writing about his dad every now and then. And guess what? The new banger with Anita Baker is going to be the best song about Wayne Bridges Luda has ever written.
The song will be titled Ocean Skies, and I am a little too eager to listen to it now. He is also seen in the studio with some of the most reputed people in the Hip Hop industry. Names such as Rozay, Meek Mill, David Banner, Big KRIT and Timbaland have already been popping up as Ludacris keeps us fans updated with what’s going down at his studio. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram to stay posted.
If you don’t know yet; Luda even hopped on to Rico Love’s remix for They Don’t Know. The song was released on January 31, and what most of the people have to say about Luda – you can see for yourself by clicking the link above.
Luda has said that he is definitely hungry even now, and he wants to keep music his No. 1 priority, always. But the man’s hectic movie schedule has been keeping him from throwing a track or two to his music fans lately.
There are three songs already out of the bag, and two have already been huge hits; Representin', Jingalin' and now Party Girls.

Also, Ludacris was the man that presented Mr. Obama his custom SOUL by Ludacris headphones with a custom seal on it. Those things looked too good to be true, and people were already screaming with all the money they had to get their hands on one of these.
Tough luck; it was only one of one pieces ever made.
Just last week, he even released another track titled Party Girls. If I be honest here, then I would have to say that this is not the Luda that gave us songs such as Number One Spot, Runaway Love and Area Codes, but still…it’s worth a listen.
Jeremih, Wiz Khalifa and Cashmere Cat try their luck on Aqua’s 90s hit single Barbie Girl and tweak it up a notch to help Luda bang in the clubs. I didn’t really love it at first, but since its release, I have spun it at least 20 times.
It’s all about appreciation in the music industry these days. Just last week, Yeezy’s kicks got sold out within ten minutes of their availability, and everybody was saying they SUCKED. What irony.
I do not hate on anybody, but wouldn’t it be right to appreciate some quality music coming from a hip-hop legend rather than listening to bogus news about a religion being named after a rapper or a clothing brand being inaugurated by a six-year-old who was made a joke of worldwide?
If anything, we can at least stay up to date with what’s Ludacris. I don’t see many loyal fans saying "I have always followed Ludacris." Why? Why is this the case? Let me know your thoughts below.
