The career of multitalented Chris “Ludacris” Bridges can best be described as remarkable. With 17 Grammy nominations, 3 Grammy wins, and over 19 million records sold in the United States, Ludacris is a force to be reckoned with, and he’s bringing that force to The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, May 14th.
Much more than an entertainer, Ludacris is a positive example and a powerful icon who is able to create, reconstruct, and command anything to which he attaches his name. Many of his successful records were paired with ingenious videos that demonstrated his far-reaching imagination and his willingness to stretch the boundaries of how hip-hop videos should look and feel. With an unrivaled match of lyrical acumen, wit, and imagery, Ludacris has solidified himself as one of music’s premiere entertainers. His 8th studio album, Ludaversal, was released last year and stuck to the tradition of success that Ludacris has established.
In addition to his heavily awarded music career, Ludacris is also an esteemed actor, having appeared in the acclaimed indie drama Hustle & Flow, the smash hit Fast and the Furious sequels 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, and Furious 7. He was also in the 2006 Academy Award Best Picture Winner Crash, which earned him the prestigious Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice awards. He has also had a recurring role as “Darius Parker” in the long-running hit television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Ludacris’ philanthropic efforts rival his entertainment accomplishments. He partnered with Crash writer/director Paul Haggis and Artists for Peace and Justice to help raise more than $4 million for Haitian relief efforts. He has also partnered with Jane Fonda, Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Nelson Mandela through The Ludacris Foundation to continue to inspire youth through education.
