Ludacris at 2007 GRAMMYs
GRAMMY Rewind: Ludacris Dedicates Best Rap Album Win To His Dad At The 2007 GRAMMYs
For the latest GRAMMY Rewind, we celebrate Atlanta rap giant Ludacris' 43rd birthday today, Sept. 11, and revisit his Best Rap Album win at the 2007 GRAMMYs. He won the award for his fifth studio album, Release Therapy, which dropped in September 2006 on Disturbing tha Peace/Def Jam. Its hit single, "Money Maker" featuring Pharrell Williams, would also win Best Rap Song that evening.
In his acceptance speech, which you can watch above, Luda looks fresh in a dark grey three-piece suit and rolls off an epic number of thank yous, dedicating the golden gramophone to his father, Wayne Bridges, who would sadly die later that month.
