"This album is set out to get the credit I deserve as an MC.” –Luda on his latest album, Theater of the Mind
Claim to fame: The peace-maker
Luda brought in 2008 keeping the peace. The normally rambunctious ATL rapper, was all about the love.
Killing the beef with Chingy… However you want to phrase it, Chingy and Ludacris have let bygones be bygones and are excited to be working with each other again. The once-estranged friends shot the video for their latest collaboration, "Gimme Dat," recently in L.A. It's the second video from Chingy's Disturbing Tha Peace second coming, Hate It or Love It.
Killing the beef with T.I. … Ludacris and T.I. seem to have kicked their storied rivalry to the side of the road. The two appear on Luda's new record "Wish You Would."
Killing any rumors of beef with Kanye West… While fans expected an all out manufactured beef when Ye and Luda dropped their albums on the same day, he killed their hopes.
Despite not securing that number one spot, Luda's sixth solo project was able to scan 214,100 in its first week.
And when he wasn’t keeping the world of rap safe, he lent a helping hand to fans. 2008 found Luda creating WebMix.com. "WeMix.com was created to offer unsigned artists access to beneficial opportunities to promote their music," Luda said in a statement. "Providing unsigned artists with promotional tools typically reserved for major label artists, such as ringtone creation and worldwide distribution is just another testament to WeMix.com's dedication to independent artists."
There was a small blip on his record though. It seems the Obama camp got a little hot around the collar when Luda released the mixtape track, "Politics as Usual." On it, he refers to Hilary Clinton as “irrelevant.” And McCain as well…old: "McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed/ Yeah I said it, 'cause Bush is mentally handicapped."
Considering Obama made it in office with ease, we can let Luda slide.
