Ludacris Says New Album ‘Ludaversal’ to Hit Shelves Soon
Though Atlanta rapper Ludacris's seventh album, 'Battle of the Sexes' debuted at No.1 on the Billboard albums chart just two weeks ago, he's already talking up his next release. The album was rumored to be titled 'Cineplex,' a play on his previous release, 'Theater of the Mind,' but Luda confirmed that this is not the case.
"It must be the biggest rumor in the world," the multi-platinum selling rapper said in a recent interview. "It's just really frustrating when somebody puts a rumor out and everyone goes with it. I never remotely said anything about something called 'Cineplex.' Dead that s---. It's 'Ludaversal.' That's what comes after 'Battle of the Sexes.'"
While details about the project are scarce, Ludacris has apparently already begun working on the release, which he says will see release within a year.
"Details are sketchy," Luda said in the March issue of Honey Magazine. "You'll probably have it at the end of 2010 or somewhere at the beginning of 2011."
Meanwhile, Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace team celebrated their 10th anniversary this year, a benchmark Luda took in stride, claiming to be just as hungry as he ever was.
"To me, marking 10 years in the game, it feels like we're starting all over again," he said. "I'm just as hungry as the first day."
As for DTP, who recently lost talented rapper Shawnna, Luda says we should be hearing new music from them soon.
"We got Lil Scrappy about to drop something soon, we got Playaz Circle, of course, we got Lil Fate, I-20, and we're working on a lot of new artists that we're gonna unleash on the industry very soon," he continued. "So we got some things in the works. Look for some stuff."
Luda's 'Battle of the Sexes' album is in stores now. Get you one.
