Ludacris was a recent guest on All the Smoke podcast and said Jay-Z once told him why he doesn’t get credit for being a great lyricist.

According to Luda, Jay said that it has to do with his wild music videos. [Jump to the 32:00-mark]

“JAY-Z was one of the ones that said, you know, he don’t think I get the lyrical credit that I deserve because of the visuals,” said Luda, who dropped an impressive freestyle back in March. “People ask me, ‘Why don’t you think get the credit?’ Because I played too goddamn much, that’s what I do. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

He continued. “That’s why my name is Ludacris, because it’s beyond crazy, it’s wild, it’s ridiculous … I like post-effects and augmenting reality, big-ass shoes with big-ass chains, and bobble heads and all that. So I get it, I can’t be mad at it. I just have to show the multi-faceted aspects of myself and I actually love that.”
