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.
