Rap-Up TV: Ludacris Talks ‘#IDGAF’ Mixtape, Chris Brown Collabos, & ‘Ludaversal’

Ludacris is back with his first project in three years, DTP Presents: I Don’t Give a Fuck. On the eve of its release, the Atlanta rapper-actor-businessman shared some insight into the star-studded set, which features Chris Brown, Young Jeezy, Mac Miller, Pusha T, French Montana, and more.

He explained why he decided to release a free mixtape at this point in his career. “Basically, I put this mixtape out as an appreciation for all the fans that’s been supporting me for over a decade,” Luda told Rap-Up TV.

Chris Brown is featured on two tracks including Da Internz-produced “Dancing Dirty.” “I feel like it’s a club record, I feel like it’s something women can appreciate,” he said. “I vibe in the studio so much with Chris Brown. We play each other so many records and there’s no method to the madness.”

He has also recorded a song called “Fantasy” for Breezy’s upcoming album X, but he’s unsure if it will make the cut.

Brown also makes an appearance on “Mad Fo” featuring Meek Mill, Swizz Beatz, and Pusha T. “That record is talking back to all the haters. What the hell are you really mad fo?” explained Luda.

He wanted to work with Mac Miller (“She’s a Trip”) because he respected his independent movement. “I love the fact that he had this underground following,” said Ludacris, who also got his start independently.

His eighth album Ludaversal is due later this year, while Fast & Furious 6 hits theaters Friday. But despite his success in Hollywood, music will always be Luda’s first love. “This mixtape is showing everybody how hungry I still am and that the music is still number one in my life regardless of how many movies I’ve shot.”
