Ludacris:
Hip-hop is everything to me. It’s how we talk, it’s how we dress, it’s how we walk. Like, everything that I do is to give back to the culture that gave me.
Datwon Thomas:
My man Luda, thank you for rocking with us on Billboard Music Awards.

Got a lot of them.

Man, appreciate you, bro.
Datwon Thomas:
We are going to run the stats real quick.

That’s crazy.

Datwon Thomas:
I’m gonna start with “Money Maker” featuring Pharrell. You were on there for 25 weeks.
Ludacris:
I remember winning a Grammy for that single, man, and it was like a long time coming. It definitely put the stock up for them shows a little more. You could say that.
Datwon Thomas:
“Stand Up.” 2003. Twenty-eight weeks on.
Ludacris:
Yeah, man. My best memory of that is Irv Gotti. We were all at Def Jam. I just remember Irv coming up to us like, “That’s how you put out a first single right there.” For soon as he heard it, I was just like, yeah, man, we knew we had one man. It was like, tempo, you know, subject matter, just it was it was everything all balled in one.
Datwon Thomas:
And the video?
Ludacris:
Yeah, video with the big shoes. Yes. You know what I mean? So we made something that lasted.
