Ludacris Thinks “People Don’t Know When To Take Me Serious”

Fresh off the release of his latest mixtape #IDGAF, Ludacris weighs in on his position in the hip-hop game.

Luda recently chopped it up with Rap-Up and discussion his position in the wider echelon of hip-hop. Although he considers himself to an elite MC, he feels people have a problem understanding when he’s making serious music and when he’s making fun music.

“I feel good about my place in hip-hop,” he said. “I feel like I’m one of the elite and I say this humbly speaking. To make it to album number eight [Ludaversal], to be in the game 13 years and still be hungry, I feel like I’ve written my chapter into the hip-hop history book and I feel like everything from now is damn near extra credit.”

He added, “They call me Ludacris for a reason. Sometimes people don’t know when to take me serious. And sometimes people do take me serious when I’m really just joking around.”

Check out the full interview below.
