Ludacris Disturbed The Peace With This Never Before Released 2001 Freestyle (Audio)
In 2001, Ludacris was one of Rap’s most exciting new stars. 2000’s Back For The First Time kicked in the door for Def Jam South (then with Scarface at the helm) for a Top 5 charting, triple-platinum affair. However, the Atlanta, Georgia star with the carefully cut sideburns was not done. Shortly thereafter, Ludacris deployed Disturbing Tha Peace, a crew and a label that would have tremendous 2000s impact.
Hitting Tim Westwood’s radio show in between Back… and 2001’s Word of Mouf, Luda and his mixmaster, DJ Infamous stopped through.With his bigger than life delivery, Ludacris attacks the beat without raising his voice. The MC weaves in punchlines about Black Moon, his new contract, and some of the trimmings of the fame. Then, he hands the mic to Infamous. While Ludacris is a former DJ who made it big rapping years later, the Decatur DJ appears to spit the verse of his life.
As Heads know, Infamous built a strong career since. His “Run The Check Up” has been a 2016 hit, featuring ‘Cris no less, as well as Young Jeezy, and Yo Gotti.
