Ludacris' Car: Just the Right Car for a Successful Rap Star

By on September 2, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Cars

Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges has quietly built one of the most successful cross-disciplinary careers in Hollywood.  Always interested in music, he began rapping when he was in elementary school, and went on to major in Music Management at Georgia State University.  His music career began to take over in the late 90s, and he left school early to begin work on his first album.  His debut project, "Back for the First Time", spawned the hit tracks, "Southern Hospitality" and "What's Your Fantasy?", and helped introduce Atlanta's "Dirty South" sound, to a national audience.  Since then, he has released six more albums, and launched a successful acting career, appearing in such projects as "2 Fast 2 Furious", "Crash", and "New Year's Eve", among other films.  He has won three Grammy Awards, a SAG Award, and is the co-founder of Disturbing Tha Peace Records.  All of his success has allowed him to enjoy some of the finer things in life, including his brand new Bentley Continental GTC.
