A lot of beefs in the music industry are caused from miscommunication and just not really understanding what's going on, having people in your ear saying this is what somebody did, or this is what somebody did to you.
I made my first song when I was 9 years old. Just beating on garbage cans, having people beat box.
I really love when people come up to me on the street and say, 'You're my favorite rapper.
I think every album you have to stretch further and further, give people another piece of you. But then I always try to deviate from the norm.
I'm one of those people that just likes to be comfortable.
But it's a blessing to be so successful within a year; it's the greatest feeling in the world, making money and doing the things that I'm doing, and I definitely trying to continue doing what I'm doing.
No matter how much money I ever get, I'm going to want to provide for my family and never have to go back to really struggling. You don't ever want to go outside, you don't ever want to be left in the cold. You want to be safe.
I don't want to be too over-exposed, but then at the same time I don't want to be too out-of-sight-out-of-mind.
I'm always in that mode - whenever I have a little free time, I'm always recording songs, writing, whatever I gotta do. It's like my job is my vacation.
Of course I have bills to pay, but at the same time, it's more about the passion and the love, and I think that's where music should come from, the heart, not necessarily just to cash a check.
Ludacris' is something that I made up. It just kind of describes me. Sometimes I have like a split personality. Sometimes I'm cool, calm, and collected, and other times I'm beyond crazy.
Working through experience is best for me, just being there and trying to get into the mode.
I think half the battle is just being comfortable in front of the camera - and I already am, doing so many videos and interviews, so then it just takes that extra step of trying to get into character.
I used to be a video game freak, but I've kind of like eased back.
I love everything from old-school cars to whatever the latest muscle or luxury vehicles are.
