Ludacris talks Kanye, Acting, Twitter Quotes, Ludaversal, Ludacris Foundation

In part 2 Luda talks to Nick Huff Barili about his 8th studio album titled Ludaversal which he says will come out this year. Luda describes the transition into acting saying: “As a rapper people are always going to want to typecast you but its my duty to pick roles that people would not expect me to do….I want to be all over the scale so you can not put me in a box.”

Luda says that he has not watched Kanye's New Slave projections because his schedule has been so hectic but he thinks it marketing genius. Luda also addresses a story by DJ Whoo Kid who states that Luda was in the studio with Kanye before he got into his car accident in 2002. Luda says that he remembers Kanye rapping for him that night and being happy that he was ok after the accident and that he was going to dive into this hip hop game regardless of what happened.

As the interview switches topics Luda shares the meaning behind several recent twitter quotes he has posted.

First: “If you put off everything till you're sure of it, you'll never get anything done.” Luda say an example of this is when he got into music not being sure he was going to make it but knowing he had a love.

Second:”Successful leaders see the opportunities in every difficulty rather than the difficulty in every opportunity.” You will have to watch the interview to find out what made him want to post that.

Third: “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” — Buddha. “We are our own thoughts man” states Luda. “If you think negatively then negative things are going to happen. Its a as simple as that. If you make it a point to think positive no matter what, through thick and thing…then good things are going to happen.”

Luda goes on to say that he loves to laugh which is why he started his hashtag #nowthatsludicrous on instagram posting funny pictures. “Sometimes that's what gets people through the day.”

The interview ends with Luda taking about The Ludacris Foundation. “We been doing it about a decade now…Its just something about knowing that you can dedicate time, energy, money, whatever you can to help fix up your own community. Cause if we dont help each other out, who the hell will?!
