MTV: Ludacris, how you doing, brother? You saw Fergie, she just shut
down the red carpet.
Ludacris: I love that song, too, man. I’m on Fergie’s album, as a matter
MTV: It’s called “Glamour,” right?
Ludacris: Yes, yes.
MTV: A couple years back at the preshow, you actually shut down 6th
Avenue. What do you remember about that performance?
Ludacris: I remember mostly it was drizzling outside it was range a
little bit. We still shut it all the way down. Shutting down the whole
6th Avenue, I don’t think anybody’s done that song. Ridiculous.
MTV: Ludacris, you’re having a good year. You’ve had a colorful career.
Still when people talk about the greatest M.C. Of all time, they’re not
saying your name yet.
Ludacris: Oh, they going to say it after this.
MTV: How can this album change that?
Ludacris: Trust me when I tell you, word for word, kick for kick, this
is my classic album. September 26th release date. I ain’t got to say nothing
MTV: All right, you’re performing on the big show tonight.
Ludacris: Yes, first single is called ‘Money Maker’ for all the money
makers out there. Radio is going crazy over it. So we’re going to do it.
MTV: Ludacris, thanks for stopping by.
