Ludacris Squashes Beef With Chingy, Performs at Live Earth and Essence Music Festival This Week

ludacris-1.jpgIn the December 2004 issue of XXL, Chingy revealed to the world he was leaving Disturbing Tha Peace Records due to friction with label executive Chaka Zulu and Ludacris. Time, however, has healed those wounds as Chingy announced earlier this year he was resigning with DTP Records. Since the announcement, though, both sides have been silent on how the deal was reached. In an interview with MTV News, Ludacris talks for the first time about Chingy rejoining the label. “At the end of the day, we all get angry about certain stuff,” Luda said. “You can never say never. You always have to have forgiveness in your heart. He came to us like a man, he apologized for things he did. In the climate of hip-hop now, you gotta let old stuff be old stuff. I forgave him in my heart. It was a move to make, and we said. “Let this man back.” All the executives at DTP, we all agreed.”

In other Ludacris news, the Atlanta native will perform at the 13th Annual 2007 Essence Music Festival, which runs from July 5 to 7 in New Orleans. Then, on Saturday (July 7), Luda will take part in Al Gore’s Live Earth concert at Giant Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. “It’s funny, because when I was out for the Grammy’s in L.A., I ran into Al Gore,” Luda told MTV News. “I was sitting there talking to him, and he wanted me to get involved in some of the stuff he was doing. I’m all about saving lives. I couldn’t refuse to be a part of something this big. I’m learning more as I go along. If the cause is to save lives and save the planet, then I’m down.”

  • izzik haze

    It’s cool to forgive , but never forget the fact that he betrayed the label that blessed him with an opportunity to display his talent.
    Let him back in with caution , and watch him like a crackhead relative in your house.
    If he don’t earn what he’s suppose to , drop em like you was breakin up a fight holdin a baby.
