Ludacris To Appear In Ad Campaign For Troubled Youth

The rap entrepreneur is lending his celebrity to a series of PSAs aimed at helping runaway teens.

Ludacris is the latest to reach out to the younger generation. The Atlanta, Georgia rapper has partnered with the National Runaway Switchboard, appearing in several public service announcements to help draw attention to a hotline for troubled youth.

"I'm fortunate I'm in a position where I can help the National Runaway Switchboard reach out to runaway and at-risk youth," said Luda in a statement. "I want young people to know they don't have to face their problems alone and this new live chat service will provide another way to get the help they need."

Luda, who joined forces with the organization in 2006, will bring attention to the hotline, which helps provide teens with information on how to find shelter, food and other means. 

The platinum MC is currently working on his eighth album Ludaversal, slated for release later this year.

    I really respect this guy, he isn't even a conscious rapper and he is just as involved in the community as any Common or lupe fiasco. He's been supporting causes for years now, really seems like he has a genuine heart and cares for those in need. It's a really good thing to see
