Famous American rapper and actor, Ludacris, has announced that he would release a new song in 2024. It would be the rapper’s first song in eight years.
In a recent interview with BET, the rapper confirmed that he will make a return to the music scene.
“Yeah, some music projects will be coming out next year. I don’t wanna fake, I don’t wanna stutter-step,” the 46-year-old rapper said. He continued that “I don’t wanna be like Andre Benjamin and say, ‘I got an album coming out.’ I don’t know. It’s definitely some music coming next year, but I don’t know if it’s like an EP or an LP. We’re going to figure it out.”
Luda, however, did not give a specific date for the release of the song he teased in the interview.
The rapper has been off the scene since 2015 after he released his 9th LP, Ludaversal. The LP debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The LP also included features from the likes of Usher, Miguel and Monica. Ludacris did not release any new song since then and instead, featured in many movies.
Asked why he took such a long break, Ludacris said: “movie projects like Fast & Furious and doing a lot of things like the Karma’s World project that’s on Netflix. You know, doing other art forms where I’m creative, where I’m putting my heart into that, I want to make sure that I leave a legacy on this earth,” the rapper answered.
He continued that “it was just taking a step back and getting hungry again, living some life. ‘Cause when you put out music, in order for it to be organic and real, you gotta talk about what goes on in your life. So if I had like nine consistent albums, sometimes you gotta take a step back and live some life so that you have a lot more to talk about and that’s what I was doing.”
