Ludacris Backs 9-Year-Old Industry Mogul

ludacris-11.jpgLudacris and his Disturbing Tha Peace partners, Chaka Zulu and Jeff Dixon, have signed on to co-produce a new reality series about a 9-year-old rapper and budding music executive, Big Korey. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will document Big Korey’s efforts to launch his own record label, sign new talent and develop his own music. The pint-sized mogul has already worked with such prominent producers as Jermaine Dupri, Jazze Pha and Dallas Austin. “He’s amazing,” Ludacris said. “He’s someone that I will definitely be working with in the future.” Also working on the project is James DuBose of DuBose Entertainment, the man behind BET’s Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is and ABC’s NFL Halftime show You’ve Been Sacked. The producers are set to begin shopping the series to cable and broadcast networks in the coming weeks.
