With Atl hip hop superstar Ludacris’ forthcoming album Battle Of The Sexes just around the corner he recently spoke to MTV about the concept of the album.
“It’s such a male-dominated industry that I feel like females need more of a voice, so we wanted to hear more of what the hell they had to say. With that being said, I went out and got women from the past, the present and the future — everyone from Lil Kim, Eve, Trina, Nicki Minaj. I got records where I’m talking about women … and where women are talking back to me.”
The project was originally set to be a collaboration album with Shawnna who left Luda’s DTPto sign with T-Pains Nappy Boy brand, he had to go a different route on the album. Luda made calls to females in the industry and he said they loved the idea of the concept and were willing to jump right on the project.
“They were loving it. It was even better when we shot the ‘My Chick Bad’ video and the remix. I had all those women on the same set. It was history. They love the fact that someone is trying to get the female voice out there more.”
Nicki Minaj, Eve, Lil Kim, Trina, Monica and Crime Mob’s Diamond are the females set to feature; Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Flo Rida and Gucci Mane are also featured on the album.
Battles Of The Sexes is set for a March 9th release date.
