.@Ludacris on 'Furious 7,' Paul Walker & the Justin Bieber Roast + New Album 'Ludaversal' .@OraTV


Rapper, actor and entrepreneur Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges sits down with Larry King on the Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” to talk about 'Furious 7,' the passing of friend and co-star Paul Walker, his new album 'Ludaversal' and his early days working the graveyard shift as a radio DJ.

Best known for his role as Tej Parker from the 'The Fast and the Furious' film series, the actor shared with Larry how Paul Walker's death affected the cast and crew of 'Furious 7,'This movie almost didn’t see the light of day. And with that being said, we didn’t know what was going to happen. But we were able to come together as a unit. Everybody that knew him - kinda like we got through it together. And from there we came up with a very creative way to end this movie and we felt that we needed to honor him and pay homage to him. And that’s exactly what we did.” Ludacris also then told Larry why he was offended by the jokes aimed toward Paul Walker at Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber. (clips below)

The Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist dished on the personal material in his new album, 'Ludaversal,' “I have another song that’s dedicated to my father who was an alcoholic and he died from alcoholism. And it was very hard for me to talk about this. However, I realized that there are so many other people that may be going through the same thing with individuals in their family that have an alcohol problem. And I just wanted to relay to them that not only should you get them help, because they have to want to help themselves, but you also have to tell them you love them because you don’t know how long they’re going to be on this earth.” (clip below)

Lastly in the interview, Larry King and Ludacris found out they were both radio DJ's with graveyard shifts early in their careers and how a lot of people aren't necessarily what they seem over the radio. Ludacris admitted, "There’s a lot of crazy people calling up with a lot of freaky tales and a lot of crazy stories." Check out what they both had to say below. (clip below)

“I would always say that I am a singer who acts because, you know, when I say singer of course rapper or entertainer musically, because that’s what got me here in the first place. So I started off being that entertainer in music and music is my foundation and I don’t feel like it will go anyway.”

“I think of course it’s the action, of course it’s the beautiful women, of course there’s our characters that everybody can identify with, but there’s this underlying theme of family and loyalty that has stretched from part 1 all the way to part 7.
