Posted On: March 31, 2015

Ludacris stopped by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club to promote his new album "Ludaversal" and his movie sequel, 'Furious 7.'

Luda starts off talking about his humble beginnings and how challenges helps him grow as a person. He makes a couple of jokes and sets the stage with some good vibes for his interview. Luda spoke about the importance of longetivity in the music game and he revealed, he will never take a five year break to drop an album. He expressed the difference between being an actor and Hip Hop artist. But remains grateful for the blessing to do both.

Luda talked about some of the frontin' that goes on the mic, not everybody who holds the mic is really hard and sometimes, they cross boundaries when they spit rhymes about another man's family. He stated, he ever claimed to be the hardest and it's all about respect. If an individual disrespect another publicly, then they need to man or woman up and apologize publicly. In the end, it's all about respect and the importance of it.

Luda is back to the basic, he doesn't mind to bring some of his old self back for the music scene but at the same time, he has grown and progress as a man and as an individual. Luda revealed, he is able to merge his old and new self to create and make music. He'll cater to his fans but remains true to who he is. Luda has no problem beastin' on a track and keeping it gully, but he's a gentleman that will rhyme about love and releationship. Being honest and opening up about things men will not talk about, because of their ego or realizing years later they made a mistake. So, Luda made a song for men to relate to and for women to understand what sometimes goes inside a man's head and even their hearts.

Ludacris talked about his business contract with Def Jam, having one more album to drop under the label, he kept it political and professional about whatever is going on with his contract. (As he should!) He spoke about the pitfalls of 360 deals, having something to fall back on instead of just being a Hip Hop artist and learning the aspect of the music business.

Luda talked about the public life, the fame and not being comfortable with it. He's a private person and wants his privacy to be respected, he feels he has been force to accept some of the downfalls fame brings and being judged for things that are not true. Luda found some peace with it through God, from knowing the truth and being at ease because of it. If anything he is entertained now about it, knowing it's all lies and not letting it bother him. But being inspired by it to be creative with his music. He's also used it to grow, expand and gravitate towards the blessing it brought.

Ludacris spoke about timing and how things happen when they are suppose to, not rushed or forced but at its perfect time. he spoke about releationships, family, Justin Beiber's disrespectful roast joke about Paul Walker and recieving apologies from the executive producers about them. He opened up about his friendship with Paul Walker and shared some memories of him.
