Luda Dives Deep Into Fatherhood, His Legacy & "Ludaversal"

Ludacris has been a busy man, finding time to co-star in films like the upcoming Furious 7 while somehow maintaining a music career of nearly 15 years within the industry. Currently promoting both the film and his new album Ludaversal, the power spitter joined Sway in the Morning to discuss why he isn’t always taken seriously as a lyricist, marriage, dealing with an alcoholic father and his place in Southern rap history.

Showing a more personal side, he also opened up about taking a paternity test for a woman he’s never even met and explains that he got married for “all of the right reasons.” Up next, Luda and Chriss Teigen will host the Billboard Music Awards together.

When they say they want that old Luda, I know what they mean. I can still do that, but that’s why this album is the perfect balance of the old Luda mixed with the new Luda,” he explained before adding, “This album is for the fans. It’s literally for you, it’s not for the radio.”
