Jennifer Hudson’s Got a Crush on Young Jeezy

Jennifer Hudson might be engaged, but she has her musical eye on a few rappers who rule the charts. The Oscar winner admitted that her husband-to-be called her out when he noticed that one lyricist in particular was grabbing her full attention, which she shares with Rap-Up in our Winter issue.

“Ludacris is my favorite [rapper], no questions about that. See, I like rappers for different reasons. I like T.I. as well. I love Young Jeezy’s voice. I love it! My [fiancé David ‘Punk’ Otunga] actually told me, ‘I think you got a crush on him.’ I love Ludacris because he has such confidence. I like T.I. because I remember coming to the BET Awards one year and they were having technical difficulties on stage. He was just so professional, not to mention, I like his music as well.”

For more details on J-Hud’s most embarrassing moment and her “Pocketbook” hit, read “The Price of Fame” in the Winter 08/09 issue of Rap-Up, on sale now.
