Playin' house 

With Chicken & Beer on the way, Ludacris settles into his new life

Page 3 of 3

As he sits on the edge of his bed and talks about his future, he seems very much like the ambitious, bright-eyed kid he so recently was.

"I just want to leave something for this world of hip-hop," he says earnestly. "I want to be known as the most versatile MC. I don't necessarily have to be the best, I just want to be the most versatile."

He continues, "Versatility and longevity go hand in hand. It scares me when I see other people disappearing so quickly, but I kind of see how it happens. Sometimes, it's the choices they make in their lives. Not everybody has the same goals. Some people want to stop after four albums or something. But I want to be able to stay."
