In 2000, Ludacris released his major label debut, Back for the First Time. Ludacris stated in an interview on MTV's hip hop program Direct Effect that he came up with his stage name based on his "split personality" that he considered "ridiculous" and "ludicrous".
Ludacris promptly completed his next album, Word of Mouf and released it at the end of 2001.
In 2014, Ludacris was featured in Forbes list titled "Hip-Hop Cash Kings", as he earned million.
Born in Champaign, Illinois, Ludacris moved to Atlanta at age nine, where he began rapping.
He took a more serious approach with his next two albums, Release Therapy (2006), and Theater of the Mind (2008).
A huge pop hit (despite its steamy video and explicit, adult-oriented lyrical content and themes), it subsequently became a success at urban radio and BET, and is the only time he has produced two consecutive top 10 singles from a solo album, except for Release Therapy (an unedited version of the video could only be viewed on BET's Uncut program). Ludacris took a more mature approach to his fourth album, The Red Light District.He first appeared on Saturday Night Live as a special guest performing with musical guest Sum 41 on a season 30 episode hosted by Paul Giamatti.He then recorded "Get Back" with Sum 41 to make a rock crossover single.The video for the lead single, "Rollout (My Business)", was nominated for a 2002 Grammy Award, and Ludacris performed it live at the awards' pre-show.
He released singles "Saturday (Oooh Oooh)" with Sleepy Brown, "Move Bitch" with Mystikal and I-20, and "Area Codes" with Nate Dogg.
This album was the defining example of Ludacris' fast, wild, and comedic flow, a unique style for southern rappers. Despite its poor sales, it was never deleted and is still sold today. Ludacris made his mark on the industry with singles such as "Southern Hospitality" and "What's Your Fantasy", along with his first ever single the "Phat Rabbit", from two years prior.
