Ludacris’ Personal Revelations Come To Life With The Roots’ Support (Video)
Ludacris truly seems to have something special with Ludaversal (March 31). The DTP founder’s most honest, most vulnerable, and most courageous album to date comes at a time when Heads may not be expecting it from him. After all, Luda’ seemingly has it all already, after 15 years running things—different than his March release date peers (Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson). But maybe that’s just what is so special about this Def Jam Records attack. Nobody quite sees it coming.
For those tuned in “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” last night (March 26), they caught a glimpse of the magic. “Grass Is Always Greener,” not even a confirmed Ludaversal single is what Chris Bridges performed with his longtime label-mates, The Roots. Questlove and company found all the musical accents in Da Internz’ beat, and made the moment all the more powerful.
Will Ludacris’ big experiment work, critically/artistically-speaking?
