The career of the multitalented CHRIS "LUDACRIS" BRIDGES can best be described as remarkable. As a recording artist, he has sold more than 15 million albums domestically, thanks to the blockbuster success of such singles as "Stand Up," "Get Back," "Southern Hospitality," "Number One Spot," "Money Maker" and "My Chick Bad." All these records were accompanied by ingenious videos that demonstrated Bridges' far-reaching imagination, and his willingness to stretch the boundaries of what rap videos should look and feel like.

With an unrivaled match of lyrical acumen, wit, and imagery, Bridges has solidified himself as one of music's premier entertainers. Although he's best known for his infectious tunes, Ludacris has shown that he's equally adept at writing powerful songs with serious subject matter, including runaways, with the song "Runaway Love." Bridges' versatility and artistic complexity also enabled him to make a seamless transition to acting.

In 2017, Bridges starred in the highly anticipated The Fate of the Furious, which broke records at the box office, becoming the highest grossing film opening worldwide. He reprised his role of Tej in Fast & Furious 9, which debuted this past June. In 2018, Bridges was featured on Carrie Underwood's platinum song "The Champion" on which he was a songwriter. Bridges was also featured in movies "Ride" and "Show Dogs" in 2018.

His other feature film credits include Universal Pictures' Fast 7, Fast & Furious 6, Fast Five, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Garry Marshall's ensemble comedy New Year's Eve; and Ivan Reitman's romantic comedy, No Strings Attached, opposite Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman. His acclaimed performances in film, (Crash, Hustle & Flow), and television, (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), have Hollywood and critics alike buzzing about his increasingly impressive screen resume. Stepping back into the studio, he is working on new music with an album release sometime this year.

A consummate businessman, Ludacris is enjoying success outside of entertainment. His latest venture includes launching his educational platform devoted to the enrichment of children called "KidNation". In addition, the opening of his long-anticipated restaurant "Chicken-n-Beer" located at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport.

Bridge's philanthropic efforts rival his entertainment accomplishments. He started The Ludacris Foundation in 2001 which focuses on helping the youth in his hometown of Atlanta. In addition, he has recently partnered with No Kid Hungry and Feeding America.
