If we’re talking about bittersweet rappers who once had it and seemingly lost everything, ATL’s Ludacris tops our list. In the early 2000’s, Luda was one of the hottest artists in the game; with a slick flow, witty punchlines and a long list of successful singles, he was on top of the world. Alas, he’s become a former ghost of himself, but that doesn’t mean that we can still enjoy his past endeavours.
Ten years ago, audiences were blessed with Chicken N Beer, Luda’s 3rd studio album. Though certainly not some of is best work (that accolade goes to Word of Mouf and/or The Red Light District) the album is a staple of the rapper’s career as a highly misogynistic, albeit caring, emcee. The standout single, “Stand Up”, is Ludacris to the fullest degree: catchy hooks, a nice head nodding, club appropriate beat and some dope wordplay. How could you hate on Luda doin his thing in the club? Check out the video down below and enjoy
