When I Was 17: Ludacris

Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is featured in this clip of MTV’s “When I Was 17.” Ludacris got his start in the music biz as an intern and then a DJ at Hot 97.5, which later changed it’s call letters to HOT 107.9.

After radio programmer Chaka Zulu was fired from the station for allegedly taking payoffs in a Payola-type scandal, Chaka was offered a job at Def Jam and he took the young upstart rapper with him to the label. The rest is history.

    It came on this past weekend. The funniest part was when he said he got caught sneaking on the set of an Outkast video…watch it when it reairs…his segments were short but entertaining.
