Ludacris To Release Mixtape Before "Ludaversal" LP

Before putting out his next album, Luda is planning on releasing his first mixtape of entirely original content.

In anticipation of his upcoming album Ludaversal, Ludacris plans on dropping his first mixtape of entirely original content. Speaking with Kube 93 FM's Supa Sam (via RR), the rapper explained that the street release comes in honor of the 10-year anniversary of 2000's major label debut, Back for the First Time.

"I'm working on a new album called Ludaversal, but I'm also working on a mixtape," he said. "We gon' flood the streets with a bunch of music for all the fans that appreciate that.

"It's like my first album actually doing that," he continued. "I've done mixtapes before, but in terms of it's going to be new music. We're going to put it out there and it's been 10 years, like I said. It's been a decade long, so I feel like it's that time. It's just rejuvenation. We gotta make sure we give everybody what they need right now."

Luda most recently released Battle of the Sexes last year, with plans to put out Ludaversal early next year.

    How the in the hell has luda fell he has more platinum albums than a lot of your favorite rappers, he kills every guess appearance ,feature , punchlines, flow and gives you the animated ,street , real songs like the one he did on release therapy,

    • Glenn Beck

      No one wants to hear old ass niggas on the radio.... I couldnt even name you any of his last 5 singles, or the names of the last three albums other than battle. And luda failed at hashtag rapping. At the end of the day, even old ass niggas like Shawty Lo kill beats way more than luda.

      hopefully he get some of the producrs from theater of the mind. 9th gave a classic song. premo delivered. and that kid wyldfyre gave him 2 bangers. that was one of his most well rounded albums. the singles sucked though.

  • reeL Talk

    WOW. Now the mixtape buzz has hit the legends too? well at least luda doesn't have an album coming the following week like these new rappers do, LOL. not a bad idea really since he is talking top of 2012 for the album. good idea to get back in the market a bit. can't be mad at that.

  • bbybbest

    • LJbigbang

      LMAO! Wtf? Never seen someone so excited over being first! Hopefully this mix-tape is a hark back to his Pre-RLD days. As in the Mouf from tha South Luda.
