Interview: Ludacris — "My Amazon Kindle is My Best Friend"
Wed, 07 Apr 2010 08:44:11
Ludacris isn't your ordinary rap superstar. In fact, he's a lot more than that.
On his chart-topping new album, The Battle of the Sexes, Ludacris manages to break down the eternal divide between men and women with sharp, hilarious insight that's unparalled even by most authors. Battle is Luda's best work by far—a one-two punch of witty rhymes and vivid hip hop storytelling. Laughs come fast and furious on cuts like the rapid-fire, blink-and-you'll-miss-it "Intro" and the cinematic "Sexting." Then there's the anthemic "How Low," which could ignite any club, anywhere, anytime, and Luda's piping hot collaboration with Flo Rida, "You Got a Man."
Even though he's on top of the world right now with a #1 debut, Ludacris still makes time for the little things. "My Amazon Kindle is my best friend right now," says the rapper with a smile. He's also got quite the reading list with suggestions for everyone out there.
Right before rocking the world on the George Lopez show, Ludacris took some time to sit down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for an exclusive video interview about Battle of the Sexes, his personal reading list, collaborating with Flo Rida and why humor is so crucial to what he does.
