Fresh off his Luda Day Weekend celebrity basketball game, Ludacris has confirmed to Billboard magazine that he’s just started work on his upcoming album, Ludaversal. The album will be Luda’s eighth solo effort, and it comes on the heels of his gold-selling March release, Battle of the Sexes. That concept project, netted the emcee/actor his third number one album with first week sales of 137,000. This time around, Ludacris confirmed that he’ll continue to work with the Neptunes, but didn’t give too many other clues as to the direction he’s headed in.
“I definitely go and look for the big-time producers, but I also make sure that I keep my ears to the street and look for all the hungry ones,” Luda told Billboard. True to his word, Ludacris’ first few albums also featured production by the Neptunes as well as one Shondrae Crawford, who later rechristened himself as Bangladesh.
There is currently no tentative release date for Ludacris’ Ludaversal album.
