Even while in quarantine, Ludacris made the most out of his May. The legendary MC battled Nelly in a high-profile clash on Verzuz -- which Billboard's scorecard gave Luda the narrow victory -- and released the dynamic "Silence of the Lambs" alongside Lil Wayne.
Hip-hop editor Carl Lamarre caught up with the ATL native to reflect on some of the fondest moments of the rapper's career and speak on what he's doing to inspire change in the youth with his Kid Nation platform.
"It's time for the real leaders to step up," he says in regards to the nationwide protests following the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. "If we don't step up and become leaders, like I said in ["Silence of the Lambs"], you're either in control or you're getting f--ked. There's no abstinence whatsoever. The people that are thinking and trying to invoke change, to try to make a difference, we're all doing it in different ways."
