Ludacris, the 43-year-old rapper and actor (born Christopher Bridges) talks about his love of being a “girl dad” and talks about being sober for more than 7 years. In his famous song “Vices”, he sums up his “vices” that included “liquor, women, and weed”.
“Some people like the drink/some people like to smoke/some people like overthink/some people overdose/I’m just trying to get the nicest/bottles on ices/to pull some all-nighters” are a few of the lyrics.
He shot to fame after releasing his major-label debut studio album Back for the First Time in 2001. His hits included Southern Hospitality and What’s your fantasy.
Today, however, he says this about marriage and fatherhood, “once you have kids, your outlook on life changes, You realize you have to educate the next generation”.

He says the songs must be approved by his daughters.
