AceShowbiz - Ludacris is proving that he still has rapping skills despite focusing on TV and film in recent years. The "Fast and Furious" actor is urged by his fans to stop acting and make a music comeback after he released an impressive freestyle over Armani White's "Billie Eilish" beat.
Making use of his Instagram account on Tuesday, November 22, the 45-year-old star posted a video of him spitting his bars. In the caption, he wrote, "Just A Friendly Reminder [microphone emoji] (Remix Coming Soon)," teasing fans that an official remix would be coming soon.
"Pilot, yeah pilot of my own plane/ Million dollar talk every time the phone ring," he spits as he kicks the freestyle off. "Luda never put in work in the dope game/ But I did to rap what Escobar did to cocaine!"
Later in the verse, he notes the many successful endeavors he's had in his more than 20-year career. "It's the MVP, jersey in the rafters/ Baller, author, rapper, actor/ Creator, producer. Career? Timeless/ Extra credit, did I mention to you h*es? B***h I'm stylish!" so he raps.
Many were left amazed by his freestyle, with one fan noting, "He needs to stop playing and come back!" Another commented, "Why did he ever stop rapping? I don't understand.. he is mad talented!!!" A third remarked, "Refreshing hearing real rappers. That get on beats and just RAP. That's the talent of RAP."
It's been over seven years since Luda's last studio album, "Ludaversal", but the multi-hyphenate certainly hasn't been resting on his laurels. The father of five remains busy with filming movies, "End of the Road" as well as the "Fast and Furious" franchise, a new toy line called Karma's World and finishing college.
Next year, Luda will be honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Though he's named in the category of motion pictures, Luda is one of nine musicians on the list alongside the likes of Charlie Wilson, Lenny Kravitz and Sheila E. Luda's late "Fast and Furious" co-star Paul Walker will also receive a star, as well as Martin Lawrence, Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn and a few others.
"Hey Momma, Your Son Is Being Selected To Receive a STAR on the Hollywood Walk of Fame In 2023," Luda wrote on Instagram while celebrating the news back in June. The "Act a Fool" artist added, "GOD IS THE GREATEST."
Earlier this summer, Luda spoke on the future of the "Fast and Furious" franchise, including whether it would get any more spin-offs similar to 2019's "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw". "It all depends," the Tej Parker depicter told E! News. "If they're done right, that's the key to it. This franchise is the only one that is based on human beings that is within that Top 10 grossing movies of all time, because everything else is superheroes and things of that nature."
