Ludacris is a rapper that is credited with being one of the creators of true “hip hop”. His career spans not only decades, but across genres and generations. A songwriter, actor and entrepreneur, he was born Christopher Brain Bridges on September 11, 1977, in Champaign, Illinois. Founder of Disturbing tha Peace, which is connected to, and distributed by, Def Jam Recordings, he has also won acting awards including the Critic’s Choice, Screen Actors Guild and a Grammy Award.
Ludacris is a big character in the rapper world. Seemingly having the Midas touch, everything that he is involved in turns instantly to gold. Starting out as a disc jockey, he soon made his name in the music scene. Rising quickly to the top, not a lot is known about his private life. He likes to keep his private life just that, private. He has a daughter named Karma Bridges born in 2001, and reportedly married his longtime girlfriend Eudoxie Mbouguiengue at the end of the year.
Not only talented, he is also a true entrepreneur and businessman. He has many business ventures that have made him one of the wealthiest rappers to date. Ludacris has a net worth of over $75 million dollar and has the distinction of being one of the 20 highest paid rappers of all time.
Adding to his list of musical feats, he is the co-founder of his own record label, which has signed many big names and helped to catapult Def Jam Recordings to the number one spot. Ludacris is also the co-owner of the famous Conjure Cognac alcohol distributor. Following in the footsteps of fellow rapper Dr. Dre, he released his own line of headphones “Soul by Ludacris” which are made exclusively by Soul Electronics. Involved in many real estate ventures, which he keeps secret, he is said to invest around the country. He currently lives in a home that reportedly cost over $3 million dollars and has over 10,000 square feet of living space.
Endorsing Puma in print advertising in 2006, they released three limited education Puma Lyde sneakers. The Puma line displays his image on the heel of the sole and has “DTP” stamped on it, standing for disturbing tha Peace, his own record label. He also has appeared in numerous films and has made a name for not just a cameo-type actor, but as someone who has real and lasting acting talent.
Joining a long list of rappers who create controversy, the list of his confrontations is small and not nearly as ominous as his predecessors or antecedents. Mostly benign, they revolve more through association than through any real violence or indiscretion on his part. For the most part, there aren’t many that have much bad to say about the persona that is “Ludacris”. Choosing to keep himself out of the limelight for his behavior, or who he is personally, most of what we know about him we see from his onstage presence. Although not knowing much about where he comes from, we do know where he is likely to head. Having staying power and opportunities for a future in hip hop or the movies, he is a true talent that is hard to come by.
