Ludacris graces the cover of TWO issues of The Source.
Ludacris has been everywhere this week, visiting just about every radio station & media publication out there to promote his new album Ludaversal and upcoming film "Fast & Furious 7" (which drops Friday). Apparently that wasn’t enough for the ATL veteran though as he also graces the cover of Spring's 2015 issue of The Source Magazine. And not just one cover either, Luda has two separate covers that just began hitting newsstands this week.
In the cover story, Luda caught up Source’s Chairman L. Londell McMillan, and opened up about his happiness, getting married, his relationship with Paul Walker, and just how personal things can get when people come at him.
Hit the gallery above to check out both covers, and peep a few excerpts from his cover story below.
On being a father and protecting his family:
“If you’re talking about me, you’re talking about them. So it’s almost like when you know that back-in-the-day saying about a mother’s strength. Like, a mother’s strength can pull a car off a child. Strengths that you didn’t know you had, you tap into a whole other energy source that you don’t want to really do that. You don’t want to f*** with that. I’ve never claimed to be the most gangster, or hard-ass rapper. However, when you tap into sometingthat’s f****** with me or my family, there’s another side that you’re going to see from me.”
On enjoying success, but staying humble:
“It’s like the difference between Ludacris and Chris Bridges [...] I’m just a humble dude and I never forget where I come from. I actually enjoy riding in my Acura Legend more than I enjoy riding in the Bentleys and the Range Rovers and the Ferrarris and sh*t like that. That part of myself, I’m never going to let go. That Acura represents a piece of me. Now, on the other hand, I got to flex on m*****f******. On one hand, I’m humble and on the other, I got to remind people that I own a plane. Like, I’ve worked hard to get this.”
