Ludacris’ Ludaversal Might Have The Coolest Album Cover Of The Last Year
For all of his bragging on his raps, did you know Ludacris still (often) drives the same exact car he owned when he first broke through? The 1993 Acura Legend sedan is actually Chris Bridges’ first car, before a career that would yield multi-platinum albums, recurring film franchise roles, and a successful label filled with other talented artists.
For the cover of his eight solo LP, Ludaversal (March 31), the Atlanta, Georgia mainstay cleverly shows that while his money, fame, and multi-talents may have moved him into different codes, he’s still Chris. The Def Jam/DTP cover art shows that Ac’, alongside Luda’s presumed private jet.
In an age when artists—none more than Luda collaborator Kanye West—are talking about class, everyday people, and relating to their fans, is this a cool step that still stays true to all aspects of Ludacris’ life?
As a bonus, the former Scarface protege and wife Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue have announced that they are now expecting their first child.
