Ludacris urged to make musical comeback after freestyle rap debut
Rapper-actor Ludacris proves he still has rapping skills despite his focus on TV and film in recent years. His fans are urging him to quit performing and make a musical comeback after releasing an impressive freestyle to Armani White’s “Billie Eilish” beat.
Using his Instagram account on Tuesday (Nov. 22), the 45-year-old star posted a video of him spitting out his bars, aceshowbiz.com reports.
In the caption, he wrote, “Just A Friendly Reminder (microphone emoji) (Remix Coming Soon),” teasing fans that an official remix would be coming soon.
“Pilot, yeah pilot my own plane / Million dollar talk every time the phone rings,” he spits as he kicks off the freestyle. “Luda never worked in the drug game/But I did to rap what Escobar did to cocaine!”
Later in the verse, he notes the many successful endeavors he had in his 20+ year career.
It’s been over seven years since Luda’s last studio album, “Ludaversal,” but the multi-hyphen certainly hasn’t rested on its laurels.
The father of five remains busy filming movies, ‘End of the Road’ as well as the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, a new toy line called Karma’s World and finishing school.
Next year, Luda will be honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Although nominated in the film category, Luda is one of nine musicians on the list alongside Charlie Wilson, Lenny Kravitz and Sheila E.
Luda’s “Fast and Furious” co-star Paul Walker will also receive a star, along with Martin Lawrence, Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn and a few others.
Earlier this summer, Ludacris spoke about the future of the “Fast and Furious” franchise, including whether it would get any other spinoffs similar to 2019’s “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.”
“It all depends,” Tej Parker’s portrayer told E! New.
“If they’re done right, that’s the key. This franchise is the only human-based franchise in the Top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time, because everything else is superheroes. and things of that nature.”
