Christopher Brian Bridges, better known by his stage name Ludacris, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and actor. Along with his manager, Chaka Zulu, Ludacris is the co-founder of Disturbing tha Peace, an imprint distributed by Def Jam Recordings. Ludacris has won a Screen Actors Guild, Critic's Choice, MTV, and three Grammy Awards during his career. Along with fellow Atlantans Big Boi and Andre 3000 of OutKast, Ludacris was one of the first and most influential Dirty South artists to achieve mainstream success.


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 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.
