Ludacris falls victim to the carjackers of Atlanta, getting his Mercedez-Benz stolen while he was using the ATM.
If you are active on Instagram and from the South–more specifically, Atlanta–you’ve seen the amount of crime in the ATL become a major focus of social media. From window smashings to shootings every hour on the hour, the page @ATLscoop and the citizen apps show you how wild the streets currently are. Even the Atlanta car community, VinWiki, is noticing cars being stolen from the valet and later finding them in local condominium parking decks for the rightful owners.
With the rate of crime going up, you have to be on the lookout and make sure you don’t play yourself with how you move. No one is more familiar with how you should move through Atlanta than Ludacris. Even a famous rapper like him isn’t exempt from catching the L from carjackers.
Yesterday evening, Atlanta police were flagged down by Ludacris, who just had his Mercedez-Benz stolen in broad daylight while he used the ATM. Luckily, the police were able to track the vehicle to an address in Atlanta where they found items that belong to the rappers, but not the car. The authorities would later track the car again and find the vehicle and recover it. Ludacris got his vehicle back, but does admit he did leave the car running while he used the ATM. Something tells us he won’t make that mistake again.
Despite the bad news, Luda has a lot to celebrate currently. The Southern Hospitality rapper is currently cooking up a new animated series on Netflix called Karma’s World that’s inspired by his older daughter named Karma.
Deadline noted that the animated series will be “a coming-of-age story about a young Black girl finding her voice and using it to change her world.”
The 43-year-old rapper shared his excitement about the new show, gushing in a statement:
“I’ve had a lot of accomplishments in my life, but everything that I’ve experienced seems to have led up to this point to where I can leave a legacy for all my daughters,” Luda explained. “‘Karma’s World’ is one of those legacies. I hope this series will show kids that there are many ways to overcome difficult situations.”
Ludacris shared that he hopes the series, which is scheduled to drop forty 11 minute episodes, will “move hip hop culture forward and show young girls that they have the power to change the world.”
