Hip Hop Appreciation Week: Ludacris

Me and my homies, Roll out!  Memories! ๐Ÿ˜† It is the year 2000. Nintendo 64 was still relevant at the time and CD players with the radio FM function + anti skip function was 50 to 60 dollars each. Due to his skin tone and braids at the time, I thought he was Allen Iverson’s brother๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

The thing I remember about Ludacris was that he was so animated. Outrageous. Something different. Don’t know how accurate this statement is but I felt like he was the Busta Rhymes of the south. I do not think there is a better artist that represented my elementary days than Luda. He dropped the Stand Up video with the midget hanging from his necklace, Get Back video with him damaging everything thing in site due to his overinflated arms…even the Number One Spot video where he was playing Austin Powers…what more do you want creativity wise! He was hilarious! Remember I said in a previous post on how rappers are the modern superheroes for the inner city. Luda showed me at a very young age it doesn’t matter where you come from, good music is good music. Like Busta Rhymes, his identity was lost changing up the hairstyle, but he was still effective nonetheless. Thank you Ludacris for your contribution to Hip Hop!

Freestyle from the Bible of Hip Hop: No one should begin to think you’re fasting ~ because around them you are having much fun and laughing! (5/19/16)
