Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Music has traditionally been classified as an art form that is heard; seldom have musicians created works that can touch more then one of our senses. With his sixth studio album, however, Ludacris has created his most visual recording to date. The album entitled Theater of the Mind is a motion picture that has been brilliantly conceived in the recording booth. Over production by the likes of DJ Premier ("MVP"), Trackmasters ("One More Drink"), and Clinton Sparks ("Call Up The Homies") Luda takes us on a lyrical journey through life as he knows it.

"A lot of emcees don't even get a chance to make it to their second album and this is my sixth album. So I always got a reason to stay hungry and stay on my grind. The “Undisputed” video is just me letting people know how hungry I still am-- no matter how many movies I've done or TV shows I been on, I still love my music", stated Ludacris during a private "screening" of his latest studio album.
Taking place at the famed Tribeca Cinemas, home to the Tribeca Film Festival, the Disturbing the Peace family invited media and special guests including LA Reid, Shakir Stewart, and MTV's Sway (the host of the night) to take a sneak peak at Luda's latest musical endeavor.

With guest appearances by Lil' Wayne, T-Pain, and The Game, Ludacris has a lot of competition on this disc, but he nonetheless stands out, due to his seasoned flow and extensive vocab. On the cut "Call Up The Homies", The Game brings his West Coast infused persona to the theater, but Mr. DTP proves that he is the star of the show. With videos already shot for the Chris Brown-featured first single "What Them Girls Like" and "Undisputed,” Theater of the Minds will undoubtedly assure Luda's financial security during these tough economic times.

Before heading for the after party, Sway inquired about Luda's past problems with a certain King... "We had been talking under the radar for a really long time. We were just waiting for the right time to let the public know, with that being said we live in Atlanta and ATL is small as sh*t! It wasn't no beef, man, just little stuff said on records. We would see each other all the time in Atlanta, it wasn't no thing… our life and your entertainment."
