Happy birthday Ludacris!

The rapper, businessman and community volunteer celebrated his 35th on Saturday at the Compound Nightclub with a big group of friends.

Birthday bash guests included boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather, producer Jermaine Dupri, and comedian Kevin Hart, who was the subject of an interesting New York Times profile over the weekend.

Also celebrating with Luda were NBA players Shawn Marion and Kenyon Martin, actor Larenz Tate and actress Keshia Knight Pulliam.

We’re told Luda and friends celebrated with an “endless parade of 35 Dom Perignon

Kevin Hart and Larenz Tate

That’s some stylish celebrating!

It’s not news you mental midgets… that’s why it’s in the entertainment section.

I believe “The Buzz is considered entertainment news. I’m certain you can check another area for what you may consider real news.

I’m sorry, but maybe someone from the inner city can translate for me. What does this interesting phrase ‘big ups’ mean? I have noticed this in numerous places throughout the comment area. I, as someone educated properly cannot comprehend. Please assist. Thanks.
