Nekesa Mumbi Moody of Newsday caught up with Ludacris for a Q&A and asked the rapper if the whole Bill O’Reilly crusade against him helped his career. “I’m sure a lot of people who didn’t know who Ludacris was definitely know who I am because of him, talking about my name,” Luda responded. “Because the audience that watches his show, a lot of those people are ones that haven’t necessarily heard of my music or heard of me. So I wouldn’t doubt in my mind that it made me a little more popular, because some people say any publicity is good publicity, and I also think it made him popular. And, yes, it did spark something, because rap is all about emotion, so I couldn’t help but let out my feelings about the subject.”
