IamA bot testing in progress. Test 02

Part 1 of 3


What is the funniest thing that's happened at one of your performances?


Me falling and tripping over a damn speaker.

And, um... forgetting the lyrics to songs. But playing it off as if I meant to do it.


What's your biggest inspiration for your music?


My children.

Competing with new artists.

Outdoing myself.

And my music out-living me.


"Better hide that big-ass forehead." Was that spit-take real or scripted?


It was so real, that's why it came across so funny!


Who would win in a fight?

Rollout Ludacris with the big head (cuz he's smarter), or Get Back Ludacris with the giant arms (better at punching)?


That's fucking hilarious man, dang!

That shit's crazy!

GET BACK Ludacris would win, with the big arms. Way too funny man!


LUDA! Which producers do you enjoy working with the most and who do you want to work with that you haven't yet?


Timbaland, Pharrell, Da Internz are some of my favorites. And who would I want to work with? Dr. Dre.


What is more time consuming, recording an album or filming a movie? Since beginning acting, which do you prefer?


Filming a movie is more time-consuming.

It's hard to compare the two, but music is what got me here, so if I had to choose, I love music more.


What did being apart of Crash and its critical acclaim mean to you?


It meant everything in the world that... the second movie I did in my career was an Oscar-winning film.

Because it made me get recognized on a critical scale a lot faster than I expected.


Has anyone spotted you in public and shouted "LUDA!" really loud?



I give them a head nod, when that happens.


Did that bitch ever get out of your way?




Luda, do you ever miss your Fro?



I did miss it, and I started growing it back, until I realized that I missed my short hair.


Who is the funniest actor you worked with on set of any movie you did?


Um... Tyrese.

He's fucking hilarious, man.


How was recording Furious 7 after Paul Walkers death?


It was very difficult, but we got through it together as a cast, and it brought us all closer together. And we were able to carry on his legacy in this film, in the greatest way possible.


It's been 14 years, so I think it's time to finally answer the question, what in the WORLD is in that bag? What you got in that BAG?


Something illegal.


At this point in your career you’ve probably been hit with every silly ‘area code’ joke known to man, but I have a question about the writing process for that song. How conscious were you to make sure as many metropolitan markets were represented in that song? Were there any smaller, special shout-out area codes you were certain to include, or conversely, any area codes you actively made sure to exclude? Are there any area codes you regret leaving out from the song?


That is hilarious. Haha!

The song could only be but so... long. And yes, there are many area codes that I wish I could've put in there. However, I tried to get the ones that were as honest to the actual hoes I had in those area codes as possible.



I love how you love on your fans on social media... when did you get into doing that?


Probably about 5 years ago!

I was an early adopter.


Whats your favorite thing about Saturdays? I personally like my system on blast with a pocket full of cash.


Hahah! I share the same opinion.


Nsync vs Backstreet Boys?


Mmm - damn. That's kinda a hard one.



Hey Luda!

Big fan here, do you ever feel a remorse for causing most people to mispronounce Ludicrous by saying Ludacris instead?


Not at all.

In fact, I'm happy about it.

There's people that have lost spelling bees because of this.

I know, right?



Hey Luda, what was the last album you listened to? and did you like it :)?


Kendrick Lamar's album. And yes I did. Very different.


How did it feel when you finally cut your hair? Were you surprised with your head shape?


I think everyone should know what their head is shaped like! So to answer that question, I was not surprised. And i felt good about it, because I could finally take a shower and let the water fall straight onto my head without any worries.


Why should i, as a motherfucker, get back?


That's funny.

Because you don't know me like that!



Did you know Blueberry Yum Yum was going one of the main weed anthems at the time?


I did.


I did, and that's one of my favorite weed songs of all time.


If you could obtain instant master tier skills in one musical instrument, what instrument would it be?


I'd say guitar. So I could rock out! Like a real rock & roll artist.


Saw you at Cornell for my senior slope day and wanted to say it was definitely the best out of my 4 years there, thanks for coming!

What was your favorite thing about doing the Fast and Furious movies? Any fun stories?



Funny stories...

Living in London, shooting FAST 6, and this was a year where I vowed to work out every single day of that year, and I was flying in and out of London and back and forth to the United States, and I remember working out even while I was sick... that doesn't sound fun, I'm trying to think of something fun... BUT something fun is of course driving all the different cars on-screen in all the FAST & FURIOUS movies. I think the most expensive car I drove was a Bugatti. It's like a spaceship on four wheels.


Ludacris, do you like to pull pranks? If so, what is the craziest prank you've ever witnessed/experienced?


I do like to pull pranks. The biggest prank i ever experienced was when Red Man and Method Man were on a show called "Stung" and they made me rap over a beat of a frog-noise.


What did you want to be when you were a little kid?


An Astronaut.

This is hilarious!


Luda, I'm glad you are here but what does Ja Rule think about this?


Um... he was in the first movie. So I'm sure he still continues to be a fan of the franchise. And I'm sure he's glad he's a part of it.


How low can you go?


I can't go very low, but... I love to see women go low.


What other stage name would you like to have?


When I was younger, I had a stage name, and it was "Kris Kringle" until I realized I could only rap about Christmas for so long.

That's true.

But i was like, 10 or 11 years old!


What other movies do you wish to become apart of?


An action hero, like a superhero movie, where I can play a superhero.

OR in a movie where there are a lot of different martial arts, and I can use the martial art that I know (52 Blocks).


Ludacris, big fan!

What was it like working with Paul Walker? Do you have any favourite memories with him you would like to share?


It was always a great time.

And the best memory is... the last conversation we had with him, 7 days before he passed away, we were shooting a scene and talking about life, and evolving, and becoming better people.


Why did you choose your stage-name Ludacris??


My first name is "Chris" and if you look in the dictionary under the term "ludicrous" then it means "crazy, wild, ridiculous" - which pretty much explains everything about me.
