Ludacris: Still 2 Fast, 2 Furious

Ludacris recently took a break from recording

and performing the southern club bangers that get us all crunk in the club.

In the sequel to “The Fast and the Furious,” he joins Paul Walker,

Tyrese Gibson, and Eva Modes in a brief but significant role. “2 Fast and

2 Furious,” directed by John Singleton, gives Ludacris an opportunity to

show the world if he can also make hits on the big screen. Tell me about your part in the


Ludacris: It’s not a big role, but it’s

not a small role either. I play Taj, a street hustler who owns a garage and

sells accessories for cars. He organizes all the street races.

AllHipHop: Did you have to prepare for the part

and did you find it challenging?

Ludacris: I’m a natural hustler myself

so the part came natural to me since I can relate well to the character. I still

feel like there’s always room for improvement so I did have an acting coach.

AllHipHop: What did you like most or dislike

about making the movie?

Ludacris: The worst part about it was “Hurry

Up and Wait”. They rush you to the trailer just to have you sit there all

damn day. I wasn’t use to this cause in a movie, you can shoot one scene

for a week, but when I shoot videos we might have two or three days to do the

whole video.

AllHipHop: Did you do any stunts?

Ludacris: No, but I watched lots of the stunts.

I was glad to see it all happening because it really made my adrenaline flow.

AllHipHop: Who would you choose if you could

pick the director and actors/actresses to work with on a film

Ludacris: That would be John Singleton, Janet

Jackson, and Halle Berry with lots of sex scenes!

AllHipHop: Tell me about the soundtrack to 2

Fast 2 Furious?

Ludacris: Its hot…Its got DTP (Shawna, Lil

Fate, Tity Boy, I-20, and Chingy), Fat Joe, Trick Daddy, R-Kelly, and Ja Rule

on it. I did the first single Act a Fool, which is an everyday expression for

doing something to the extreme. Its another club joint so make sure you check

out the soundtrack. It’ll be out on May 27th.

AllHipHop: Did you do any stunts in the video

for Act a Fool?

Ludacris: Yeah, I was driving and doing some

crazy stuff, but it looks a lot harder than it really is. I’m a dangerous

type person anyway so its no big deal to me. I like driving fast as hell, 4-wheelers,

and I went sky diving twice so I’m not trippin off of that type of stuff.

It’s a really good video though, so check

for it soon.
