Video: Ludacris Reminds MTV Who He Is

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Ludacris speaks to MTV’s Mixtape Monday and reminds them about how consistent he’s been. It’s true that Luda always gets left out of Top 10/G.O.A.T. conversations even though he’s certainly a lot of people’s favorite, but that’s when he’s dropping an album/is being properly promoted. That’s what happens when you’re not keen on beefing every other week. He tells MTV:

“I’m top five, dead or alive, and MTV, y’all must be out your muthafucking mind. That’s the statement I’m trying to make.”

His Theater of the Mind album is still a work in progress, but he’s handing it in in about a month. You can expect more reminders.

“She said something about Kanye late on [in her set] but I didn’t hear it,” he said. “I don’t agree with it. He’s my brother and the biggest artist on Roc-A-Fella right now. … I guess I should hook them up because he’s a great guy, too. I don’t know what the problem is. I don’t know where that came from.”

Big Brother saw me at the bottom of the totem, now I’m at the top and everybody on the scrotum. Continue reading this post…

Hey Tek, look at what I saw on Nah Right: nation wants a new album… we should get Dante on the phone.
