got word from Ludacris that his next album, “Ludaversal,” is set to drop in May, this will be his eighth studio album.

Ludacris spoke on one of the people he will be collaborating with on the album:

"Usher is one person that I've already worked with," Ludacris said of the artist, "and in terms of other artists, you can say that there's going to be a lot of surprises on here."

"I get the beats together and I put out my ideas, so I'd say we're maybe about 40 percent done," said Luda. "I've pretty much collected about 80 percent of the beats that I need and I've started writing ideas on them. First I have to love the beat, absolutely love it."
