Ludacris recently made an appearance on the Tamron Hall Show, where he shared his inspiration for the freestyles he's been posting to Instagram as of late. He revealed, “When I was young, I feel like some of my favorite rappers, once they get to a certain point, it’s almost like you wish that they were still kind of hungry." He added, "You feel like they don’t have it necessarily like they used to." “I never wanted to be that," the rapper claims. "So it’s extremely important for me to prove to people that even though I’m doing all this other stuff." He went to say, "Make no mistake, I still got it and I’m still as hungry.”
Later on in the interview, the rapper discussed releasing new music in the near future. He said, "We’re definitely gonna get some music before the end of this year." Adding, “I would say an album, probably next year." Ludacris also refers to his appearance in the upcoming Fast & Furious film, Fast X. "They keep shooting more movies. What am I supposed to do?” he shared.
