SINGLE: Ludacris - Beast Mode

March 2015 is looking to be an epic month in Hip-hop, with Action Bronson, Wale, and Kendrick Lamar all having album release dates toward the end of the month. One veteran who may be overshadowed by these young-uns is none other than Ludacris, who will be dropping his 9th studio album Ludaversal on March 31st. It's been an uphill battle for Ludacris the past five years or so after several album push backs and mixtape releases that garnered little to no buzz. There was a time in the early 2000s where it looked like Luda simply could not be stopped in this game, but the inevitable cycle eventually gave birth to far superior artists who made Luda's flow seem basic by comparison. Ludacris' career eventually began to coast in the latter half of the 2000s with luke-warm-to-average projects such as Release Therapy and Theater of the Mind, but the rebirth of lyricism these past five years have forced Luda to step his game up. His new single "Beast Mode" attempts to combat naysayers who feel as if he has fallen off. Don't get me wrong, the track is fire for 'Cris' standards, but will it be enough to catch the attention of fans and keep him from getting buried beneath the hype of Bronsolino, Wale, and the King Kendrick when their projects drop? Let us know how you feel.
