Ludacris has a lot of titles to his name, and as of this Tuesday, he's just garnered himself another one. The rapper and Fast & Furious actor has been named as the artist-in-residence at Georgia State University. Later this fall, Ludacris will take part in lectures and mentor students alongside professors at the Creative Media Industries Institute.
Founded in 2014, the CMII prepares students for careers that cater to skills outside the range of traditional degrees. "Chris [Ludacris Bridges] is an incredibly talented artist and has so much industry knowledge to share,” said executive director of the institute Brennen Dicker. "We are excited to see how our students, and really the entire institute, will benefit from this great new partnership."
“Georgia State is one of the most innovative and diverse universities in the country,” Luda said of the announcement. “I couldn’t imagine a better place to work with students than CMII."
To coincide with the news, Georgia State University confirmed his status as artist-in-residence with a picture of Luda's old student card.
Ludacris previously studied music management at the university in 1998 through 1999. He is currently set to appear in the next Fast & Furious film, which hits theaters on May 22, 2020.
