Christopher Brian Bridges was born in Champaign, Illinois, the only child of Roberta Shields and Wayne Brian Bridges.
He later moved to the Chicago area, where he attended Emerson Middle School in Oak Park and Oak Park & River Forest High School for one year.
Ludacris also appeared on Timbaland's 1998 debut on "Phat Rabbit," a track that would later be used on his re-issue of "Incognegro" called "Back For The First Time". Guest appearances included 4-Ize, I-20, Shawnna, Pastor Troy, Timbaland, Trina, Foxy Brown, UGK, and others.
Produced by Kanye West, "Stand Up" went on to become one of Ludacris' biggest mainstream hits to date, hitting the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 garnering heavy airplay on mainstream pop, rhythmic, and urban radio stations, as well as on MTV, MTV2, and BET. The album's next single, "Splash Waterfalls", was released in early 2004. Ludacris received his first Grammy Award with Usher and Lil Jon for their hit single "Yeah! Ludacris next released "Blow It Out", which was accompanied by a low-budget music video.
At around the same time, he released the lead single from his album Chicken-n-Beer, called "P-Poppin" (short for "Pussy Poppin'").
Neither of his new singles were as well received by either the urban or pop audiences as his previous songs had been, and both music videos received only limited airplay.
In 2001, he released Word of Mouf, followed by Chicken-n-Beer in 2003 and The Red Light District in 2004.
He took a more serious approach with his next two albums, Release Therapy (2006), and Theater of the Mind (2008).
