Despite musicians of all stripes investing in businesses not related to music for centuries, including dining establishments, and despite rappers being well-known for their mercenary attitude towards success-in-entrepreneurship, a writer for business mag Fast Company is shocked that Ludacris thinks he can just pony up the dough to buy an Atlanta eatery and start restauranteuring like he owns the place. Stick to degrading women through hilarious rhyming words, Bridges!
Now this sounds terrible, but I have to admit I was taken aback at the idea that someone who I know only in context of his desire “to lick you from your head to your toes” and his overly-virile claims about having “a hoe in every area code,” could be business savvy enough to be able to delve into the real estate business and make an attempt at being a real entrepreneur.
“I don’t generally speak about it… I keep it to myself. I’m definitely into real estate. I’m a silent partner and an entrepreneur outside of music,” said Ludacris in an interview with the Chronicle
“Terrible” is one word for it, yes. “Clueless” and “quasi-offensive” are others. Up next, perhaps Fast Company will blow the lid off musicians they know “only in context of their desires to worship Satan and their overly enthusiastic claims about separating victims from their entrails” donating money to the local children’s hospital.
