Since Coca-Cola, Ludacris is Atlanta's most popular export, and on June 10, 2002, Def Jam South/Mercury Records will release his brand-new single, "Rollout (My Business)." This immediate classic, which Timbaland produced, is from his second album, "Word Of Mouf," which has been a smash hit in the United States. After its debut at the end of 2001, "Word Of Mouf" has consistently occupied a spot in the Billboard Top Ten Album Chart, selling more than 2 million copies. On June 4, 2002, Ludacris will perform a special night at The Forum in London along with his amazing live presentation. When Ludacris sold over 30,000 copies of his debut album "Incognegro" from the trunk of his car, Def Jam initially took notice of him. He subsequently became the initial signee for the newly launched imprint Def Jam South. After the album was reissued under the name "Back For The First Time," Ludacris soon rose to prominence as the face of the burgeoning "Dirty South" scene. With 2.7 million copies sold in the US, "Back For The First Time" gave rise to the huge anthems "What's Your Fantasy," "Southern Hospitality," and "Ho." The "Dirty South" continued to surge in 2001, with artists like Missy, Outkast, Nelly, and Bubba Sparxxx joining Ludacris as indisputable leaders. Ludacris is in demand because of his great lyrics, outrageous sense of humor, and use of the best rhythms. He has worked with well-known producers including Timbaland, The Neptunes, and Jermaine Dupri, as well as Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey, and Nate Dogg on the hit songs "One Minute Man," "Loverboy," and "Area Codes." 'Rollout (My Business)' is now available, supported with mixes by garage superstars Pay As You Go..

"How much does it cost to book Ludacris for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Ludacris booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Ludacris charge for an event. One example fee to book Ludacris is in the starting range of $150,000-$299,000. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Ludacris for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Ludacris agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Ludacris, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Ludacris booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Ludacris, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
