Ludacris Talks Paul Walker, Feeding a Tiger, & His First Car on ‘Ellen’

Ludacris and Ellen DeGeneres

Ludacris put his body of work on display during his appearance on Monday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The Atlanta rapper, who was there to promote his new single “Party Girls,” showed the results of his time spent in the gym, flashing his six-pack abs.

He also remembered his late friend Paul Walker, who stars alongside him in Fast & Furious 7. The movie hits theaters in April 2015 and features a cameo from Walker’s brothers.

“We’re all still healing from it and there’s a void when we go to set,” said Luda, “but we understand we have to carry on his legacy and I think this movie is definitely gonna be something very special.”

He recently returned from Dubai, where he got to feed a tiger at a sheik’s zoo. But despite his lavish lifestyle, he hasn’t forgotten where he came from. He still owns his first car, a 1993 Acura Legend, which has over 250,000 miles on it.

“It says a lot about my personality, but I’m just a humble individual,” said Luda, who still writes a lot of his music in the car. “It’s one of those things that I will never get rid of.”

Plus, Ellen presented him with a few funny gifts for his ride.

Ludacris and Rico Love

Rico Love turns the lights and his swag on in the remix video for his Discrete Luxury single “They Don’t Know” co-starring Ludacris and his Divison1 artists Tiara Thomas and Emjay.

In the flashy visuals, shot in Atlanta last month, Rico dons a white fur straight out of Diddy’s closet as he gets friendly with some hot women. A dapper Luda matches his suit with his Jordans, while Tiara goes topless.

“I’ve been waiting my whole life to make this video,” Rico told BuzzFeed. “I grew up idolizing Puffy and the whole Bad Boy movement. I dreamt of being in visuals like Craig Mack’ ‘Flava In Ya Ear’ or G-Dep’s ‘Let’s Get It,’ to name a few. Those flashy, fly, performance-driven visuals made me fall in love with fashion and excess.”

On April 8, a physical version of his six-track EP Discrete Luxury, including “They Don’t Know” and the new single “Bitches Be Like,” will be available exclusively at Best Buy.
