Ludacris Gets His Start

Ludacris started as a DJ at a radio station in Atlanta. It was here that Ludacris worked his rhymes on the mic, got the 411 on the music industry and became known throughout the Atlanta area. Eventually, Ludacris leaned toward a career as an MC rather than as a radio disc jockey.

Ludacris Says...

"I try to make good albums as well as dope singles. The kind of music that people blast in their rides'. It's my goal to make the kind of music that, if there was no television, no radio or no street teams... you'd still know about my record. That's what Word of Mouf is all about."
