Ludacris is returning to his old college, as the multi-platinum selling artist has joined Georgia State University’s Creative Media Industries Institute as an artist-in-residence.
The Fast & The Furious franchise star, whose real name is Chris Bridges, attended Georgia State in the late ’90s. As part of his new gig, the veteran rapper/actor will work with CMII professors and mentor students.
