The stars came out to salute Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges at the 2014 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood on Friday.

Following video tributes from Usher, Lil Jon, and Tom Cruise, Luda thanked his mother, girlfriend Eudoxie, and his team.

Chris Brown was also in the house and received a Special Citation of Achievement recognizing over 1 million broadcast performances of his hit “Forever.”

“I just appreciate all the singers and the songwriters who helped me get to this point making all this great music,” said Breezy. “I didn’t do it by myself. The fans really jumpstarted it.”

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.
