LUDACRIS + NELLY at the Fox!

FOX THEATRE • DECEMBER 19, 2021

When rap’s Dirty South movement broke nationwide in the late `90s and early 2000s, Ludacris rode it to immediate widespread popularity, becoming arguably the most commercially successful Southern rapper of the time. The rapper scored hit after mainstream hit and selling platinum numbers of records like 2001’s Word of Mouf, which charted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and spawned a series of hit singles including “Area Codes,” “Rollout (My Business),” “Saturday (Oooh Oooh!),” “Welcome to Atlanta” and “Move Bitch.” 2003’s Chicken -N- Beer was his first album to reach #1 on the Billboard 200, which brought another series of hits, including the Hot 100 #1 “Stand Up” and #6 “Splash Waterfalls.” He quickly became a multifaceted superstar, making multiple film and television appearances while staying active in music with consistent guest features on other artists’ tracks and albums of his own like 2015’s Ludaversal. In September 2020, the new single “Found You” arrived featuring a guest spot from Chance the Rapper.
