In March, Ludacris posted pics of his studio sessions with an array of artists like Anita Baker and Chris Brown and producers Rico Love and Jim Jonsin for his forthcoming album, Ludaversal, which is set to drop in September on his birthday, the 11th. We also know he’s worked again with Usher for it too. While I couldn’t get much more information out of him about it, he did promise it’s 70% done and it’s going to be “a great piece of work.”
So, this year is a big one for Ludacris, as he gears up for his 8th studio album release. But before that, he’s got a few things to do. Like film the next Fast Five installment. And also, more importantly, head back to South Africa for the Mandela Bay Mega Fest in PE, which also features Ne-Yo, Shaggy and dance darlings Mi Casa.
Here he talks about movie-making, his favourite place in the world (hint: begins with “S”, ends with “A”) and, er, not about Ludaversal.
Ludacris joins Ne-Yo, Shaggy, Protoje, Shoelace and Mi Casa on June 2nd at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
