Ludacris has become one of the few rappers to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The star, numbered 2,756, now belongs to him and is located at 6426 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. The unveiling of the star was held earlier today and livestreamed online. Ludacris was accompanied by an impressive lineup of supporters, as well. Big names such as LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, Vin Diesel, and Tyrese were all in attendance. However, there was a particularly moving moment for the rapper during the ceremony. Legendary Los Angeles radio host Ellen K announced that Luda’s eldest daughter, Karma, would be sharing some thoughts. The rapper had no clue.
“I was fighting tears. Seriously, I was glad that I had my sunglasses on today,” Ludacris said. “That blew me away. Usually, it’s not easy for people to keep certain things from me, but that was 100 percent a surprise. Seems like everybody knew but me! I’m a little pissed off right now. I’m a little mad.” The ceremony came just before the debut of Luda’s new Fast and Furious film, which is set to release tomorrow.

Ludacris Thanks Those That Made Him Who He Is
As the ceremony was a celebration of all of Ludacris’ accomplishments, he made sure to thank those who helped him get where he is. The rapper acknowledged and praised his contemporaries and supporters. Furthermore, he emphasized that he owes his success to the collective of individuals who contributed to shaping him into the person he is today. “No matter what people say I can’t do, I will continue to shatter those stereotypes and show people it’s possible in order to make everyone who got me here proud,” Ludacris noted. “Because you all inspire my hard work and dedication to receive this star today. I’m motivated by legacy and history.”
Luda continued to thank those who came to support him during the ceremony. “I’m just so thankful. So, getting a star is a statement, but be clear about this statement, the even bigger statement to me is that we are all interconnected,” he said. “And I am a culmination of the people who showed up for me today believing in me and pushing me to inspire me. So y’all be clapping for me all day I’m gonna need y’all to give yourselves a round of applause. Because I’m nothing without you.” It’s an extremely selfless sentiment on a special day for Luda.
