University of Georgia Athletic Director Apologizes For Ludacris Wild Concert Rider

(AllHipHop News) University of Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity has apologized for the fallout from an April concert featuring rapper Ludacris.

The University booked the rapper/actor to perform during “G Day,” the annual spring football game, which pulled in a record 93,000 people.

Ludacris was paid $65,000 for a 15 minute performance, according to a contract rider which was released shortly after the concert.

Ludacris’ contract with the University of Georgia came under fire because it called for many outlandish things, including bottles of liquor and condoms.

Greg McGarity sat in front of UGA’s Athletic Board of Directors, as well as UGA President Jere Morehead, earlier this week to explain.

“Few things in my professional life have bothered me more than this situation,” McGarity said according to a report on Athens-Online.

McGarity was not only rankled over the $65,000 paycheck, he was embarrassed
by the list of demands the University had to fulfill to secure the last minute performance from Ludacris.

Luda required dinner to be served for 10 people. Food requirements included seasoned chicken breast, wheat pasta and two platters of mild teriyaki lemon pepper chicken.

Ludacris required a little more.

The Grammy Award winning artist requested organic creamy peanut butter, organic jelly, a box of fruit roll ups, a hairbrush, two Joan Malone candles (Gardenia Scent), two large bags of plain, BBQ chips and much more.

However, it was the Trojan Magnum (Excstasy) and the bottles of Belvedere, Patron Silver and even his own Conjure cognac, that really put athletic director Greg McGarity under the microscope.

“There are no reruns in life so we need to turn the page, learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to make sure errors of this nature do not reoccur,” said McGarity.
