Ludacris Is a Lyrical Monster on ‘LudaVerses’ Mixtape
If you think that Ludacris doesn’t have bars -- think again. The Atlanta rhyme-spitter is a lyrical monster on his new mixtape, ‘LudaVerses.’
On the 20-minute collection, Luda displays his skills in wordplay over a variety of today’s hottest beats, including ILOVEMAKONNEN’s ‘Tuesdays,’ Bobby Shmurda’s ‘Hot N----,’ Pusha T’s ‘Numbers on the Board,’ Jay Z’s ‘Tom Ford,’ Nicki Minaj’s ‘Only’ and more.
Ludacris, who's engaged to his longtime girlfriend Eudoxie, spits numerous metaphoric bars and punchlines that will make your head spin.
For example, in one line, Luda raps, “Back at it like a better me / I’m just trying to earn my stripes like a referee / Calling a foul on the play, you a h- n---- / Selling records? You can’t even sell an O n----.”
Elsewhere, the ‘Southern Hospitality’ rapper spits about his fame through music and entertainment.
“Luda bought a house in the Hollywood hills off touring and recording,” he rhymes over RiFF RAFF’s ‘Tip Toe Wing In My Jawwdinz' beat. "Luda Abdul-Jabbar, bitch, I lead the league in scoring."
In 2014, Ludacris released his ‘Burning Bridges’ EP, a six-track collection featuring guest appearances from Miguel and Rick Ross. The EP is available on Google Play but will get a wider release on Jan. 6.
Meanwhile, Luda plans to drop his long-awaited album, ‘Ludaversal,’ on March 31.
