Product Overview

DefJam Records, the label responsible for LL Cool J, Run DMC, Slick Rick and DMX, has discovered yet another hip-hop phenomenon: Ludacris. Coming straight outta the dirty South, the Atlanta-based rhymer honed his mic-skills rapping on station promos while working as a night-producer at Atlanta's Hot-97.5 - from there, it wasn't long before his own self-produced hit single, "What's Your Fantasy," led to his making hip-hop history by becoming the first artist signed to DefJam's new Southern imprint, DefJam South. With the release of Ludacris: Back For The First Time, 'Cris is livin' large -- the album showcases not only the joint that made it all happen, "What's Your Fantasy," but also new tracks with UGK, Lil' Troy (of "I wanna be a baller, shot-caller" fame) and super-producer Timbaland, who's manned the boards for the likes of Jay-Z and Missy Eliot. Now that his skills have been recognized, get ready for Ludacris to show you just how dirty the dirty South can be.

For this Atlanta-based rapper, keeping true to street roots has never been a concern, since he's always remained so close to them. Far from the east and west coast hip-hop star mills, this southern sensation rose up from the underground and never abandoned what he'd learned there. His third album WORD OF MOUF may find Ludacris surrounded by a brace of guests that include both heavy hitters (Mystikal, Jagged Edge, Nate Dogg) and more unknown names (Sleepy Brown, Keon Bryce, Fate Wilson), but he draws on his own considerable verbal skills and unique urban vision as the foundations for his work.
