Rap superstar Ludacris hits The Colosseum stage on Friday, August 12 at 9pm.

Ludacris rode rap’s “Dirty South” movement to immediate widespread popularity in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, becoming one of the most commercially successful Southern rappers of the time. The aughts saw Ludacris score hit after mainstream hit, selling a number of platinum records and making multiple film and television appearances.

Ludacris entered the rap industry via radio, working as a disc jockey at Atlanta-based urban station Hot 97.5. Ludacris became acquainted with legendary record producer Timbaland, who featured him on the hit song “Fat Rabbit.” Ludacris proceeded to record his independent album, Incognegro, which broke into the Billboard 200. Repackaged by Def Jam in late 2000 as Back for the First Time, the album included “Stick ‘Em Up,” “Southern Hospitality” and “What’s Your Fantasy.” His follow-up album, Word of Mouf charted at number three, spawning a series of hits including “Area Codes,” “Rollout (My Business)” and “Welcome to Atlanta.”

In 2003, Ludacris famously appeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious and released his third album, Chicken-N-Beer. The record became the rapper’s first to reach number one on the Billboard 200, with the help of Hot 100 number one hit “Stand Up” and number six “Splash Waterfalls.” The following year, The Red Light District” was released, loaded with smash singles including “Get Back,” “Number One Spot” and “Pimpin’ All Over the World.”
