Ludacris knows that rap is essentially a man’s world -- and the three-time Grammy winner is doing something about it. On his eighth album, the multi-platinum rapper wanted to level the playing field a bit, so he crafted Battle Of The Sexes, a spirited collection that gives men and women equal billing.
On August 15, 2010, Ludacris tweeted that he is currently back in the studio with The Neptunes working on his eighth studio album, Ludaversal.On July 7, 2011, according to his Facebook, he recently went to Paris, France to work on Ludaversal. On May 29, 2012 Ludacris released the lead single, "Jingalin". The second single taken from the album entitled "Representin" has the collaboration of American recording artist Kelly Rowland. It was sent to radio on August 31. The release date for the album was set for September 11, 2012, but ended up delayed. He released the third single "Rest of My Life" featuring Usher and David Guetta to much greater success than the previous two. He has said that his next album Ludaversal will be released in September 2013.
