Ludacris and his Disturbing Tha Peace crew stopped by MTV’s Total Request Live on Wednesday to promote their new album ‘Golden Grain’. Unfortunately, Damien for whatever reason didn’t ask about Bill O’Reilly’s virtual crusade against him — maybe because ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ and TRL don’t exactly draw the same demographics. Luda did talk about his pre-VMA performance which he called the “hardest one” of all his TV performances. Read on for a transcript.
Damien: Say hi to your people.
Damien: What ‘up ? What’s the deal.
Ludacris: How are you , man good to see you.
Damien: You too
Damien: How you feelin’ sb| . People outside is crazy. Wha’ssup? Disturb
inteeg the peace , they got it representin’ out there.
Ludacris: Believe it they definitely representin’.
Damien: Talk about your V.M.A., Pre-show performance, man that was unbelievable
we closed down the entire treat of radio city music hall dancin’ on top
of cars , jumpin’ around and goin’ crazy what was that like.
Ludacris: Out of all television performances that had to have been the
hardest one because we know new york city has some of the worst traffic
in the country. We shut down a whole block sittin’ on top of cars the whole
family one of the craziest performances ever in my life.
Damien: How d o you rehearse for something that big. It is so big closing
down a street in new york almost seems impossible.
Ludacris: It is funny because before we performed we never even rehearsed
anything. We rehearsed on that of course because mtv made u s rehearse
but it’s all good. We were haed without rehearsein’ regardless. If you
would have threw us out there we would have still wrecked it, crushed it.
Damien: You are about to wreck it
Ludacris: Yeah, love ya
Damien: I love you , too a girl cryin’ over there , man.
Ludacris: I know , she be cryin’, —

prom thing and went in and crashed the prom so ludacris decides to really

Damien: My favorite track of the album I’ve had it about the week listenin’
to track no. 2 like over and over again called “growing pains” about growin’
up, hangin’ out havin’ barbecues in the summer was that what was like for
you guys growin’ up.
Ludacris: That was exactly how it was like and we exactly wrote down
the same script of the son you know what I’m sayin’ every line like real.
For us that’s how we grew up we want to bring it to the people because
we feels there a lot more people relate to growin’ up the same way.
Ludacris: That can relate to big wheels and the first nintendo and G.I.Joe
and he-man, all this.
