Want to meet Ludacris?

Cheers from Ludacris!

Cheers from Ludacris!

Artist and entrepreneur Ludacris will sign bottles of his Conjure Cognac line from 4:30 to 6 p.m. next Thursday, Dec. 23, at Camp Creek World of Beverage. The address is 3780 Princeton Lakes Pkwy SW.

The owner of Straits restaurant and founder of the Ludacris Foundation, he created and launched Conjure with cognac house Birkedal Hartmann in 2009 and is an equal partner in that enterprise.

In other Luda news, he and some friends had dinner at Two Urban Licks Thursday night, enjoying a spread of fried oysters, empanadas, lamb lollipops, and calamari before moving onto ravioli and ribs.

Seriously, where did you get that picture, on the front page, of Ludacris? Looks like someone just slapped his mother and shot his dog.

Who cares? This man is not an “artist”. He has absolutely no talent.

Luda is a straight entrepreneur. His restaurant is nice…classy. He has an amazing art and wine event every Wednesday at Straits, and the staff and food is consistently good. Never had his yak though. Good for him….how can you be mad at this?

I don’t care about Ludacris’ music, but I admire the fact that he is a businessman. He is preparing for the future because he knows it won’ t cute for him to be rapping at 50+.

Offensive music, obscene, and misogynist lyrics….who listens to that crap and what’s so intelligent about that? It’s ignorant. Rap and hip-hop is ignorant and judging from some of the posts, some people don’t know how to spell or use proper English. People in this city need to stop focusing so much attention to these hip-hop artists and treating them like royalty. He’s another businessman whose venture will tank.

? – You mean that people in this city need to stop focusing so much attention “on” these hip-hop artists (not “to”). Right? Use proper English, please.

Not only that @Kat, but the first sentence in “?’s” last post is a SENTENCE FRAGMENT. Second sentence has a vague reference. ‘What’ is ignorant?? There is no subject predicate agreement in the third sentence (should be “are”, as stating “rap and hip-hop” makes them a collective subject. This would warrant the use of “are” rather than “is”). I guess use of “proper English” can be a challenge for us all @? …???? I am really glad all of the ebonics and ghetto slang I learned growing up in the projects are serving me well ;O)

Finally, I thought being a “businessman” was a noble thing in american society??? His last statement gives credence to Tina’s observation that this individual is in fact “sipping on haterade”. I am convinced it is a 64 oz. size though. Put that stuff down @? That -ish is far worse than “4 Loko”.

for the person who post everything with there name as “?” you seem pretty ignorant yourself.. I am not even really that much of a Ludacris fan anymore as my musical taste has changed in the years since Ludacris hit the seen but i still respect the fact that the rapper/actor is the highest-selling Southern hip hop solo artist of all time with over 17 million units sold in the United States and 24 million records sold worldwide.. On top of that he acts and owns a successful restaurant and several other successful business ventures. what have you done in your life to amount to the success that he has that gives you the right to hate on him so hard? and just for your reference when you stated “Rap and hip-hop is ignorant and judging from some of the posts, some people don’t know how to spell or use proper English.” it should have been rap and hip-hop are ignorant instead of is ignorant or you could have said rap/hip-hop is ignorant, so work on that proper English a little.. thanks

I suppose it could be worse. At least the intoxicant he’s selling is a legal one.

Ignore these losers who are hating. Luda is a graduate of GSU, and also a very successful businessman and a great story teller through his music.

Hip-hop, rap, whatever you want to call it is garbage. And who is “miles” saying “since Ludacris hit the seen”–do you mean SCENE? Just because people buy a lot of records doesn’t mean it’s quality. Oh and “Luda” also has a kid out of wedlock–what a great role model.

That’s okay, not to put this man in that category, but you always read every other week in the AJC about these rappers getting thrown in jail. TI, Lil’ Wayne, etc. at least someone is getting this trash off the streets.

@? Bet you voted for the “businessman of the year”…Nathan Deal. Nuff said to you ding-dong
…..
@Hip-Hop IS Garbage..bet your kids (almost hope you didn’t procreate) have all of the rappers you mentioned on their Ipods. FYI…it’s the little White kids making them rich. Also are out of wedlock kids something only attributed to rappers? Hmmm…I don’t think so. Another big FYI..Luda takes great care of his daughter, so it’s not like he is not in her life. I bet you didn’t even grow up in a two parent home. I don’t think any rapper, actor, athlete or singer should ever be labeled a role model. They only need to be accountable to their own children…not every kid in the world.

an insight into the rapper’s lyrics–some people will do anything to make a few dollars and that’s just sad

There is always going to be some haters anywhere you go! Lol
It’s funny because while everyone is talking trash Luda is steady yet making his money. I think he is very talented…I like his music and every remix that he is in he makes it HOT. He has done some pretty positive things, he has his own foundation and he is a long time supporter of youth programs.
Yes his lyrics are a little ummm, well lets just say I know better to have my eleven year old listen to his songs but he is (Luda) is an adult which means he makes songs for adults. Rappers rap about their life, what they have been through. If you don’t like it don’t listen to it.
By the way, why must people always mention that RAPPERS are always going to jail?
I believe Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Amy Whinehouse, Britney Spears have done a few weeks or months behind bars!

Much Respect

Luda – much respect to you as a man, an artist and as a person who gives back to the community OFTEN! And you even took the time to post a comment on this page. You are AWESOME! Keep up the good deeds – God Bless…

Georgia Peach,

You mention Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Amy Whinehouse & Britney Spears have done a few weeks or months behind bars. Who gives a crap? The only one out of all those people with even a hint of talent is Lindsay Lohan and she is just throwing her career away.

Rappers get arrested and go to jail to build “street cred.” They have no talent and have to do something to show they are “keeping it real” so the thugs and gangstas will go and buy their CD’s. Just see Lil’ Wayne and T.I. (TI stands for Total Idiot by the way) for example.

Did you know that 1 in every 170 White people will get AIDS.
1 in every 130 Hispanics
1 in every 22 Black Americans will have AIDS in their lifetime.
Ladies, theres a reason why AIDS is the #1 killer of young black women. Tell more of your men to get tested!

Takes a pretty low class person to come on here and talk down about a certain style of music. I am not into Hip Hop rap either. However, Ludacris is a very nice guy. I have met him a couple of times in my business affairs. He is articulate and very engaging. Why come on here and trash what you don’t understand. I don’t get Hip Hop either, but the Hip Hop artists I have met are really good dudes. Way to judge someone on their looks etc.. AND yes I am a middle aged White Male.
