Ludacris Goes To Africa With MTV2 To Celebrate Black History Month

ImageAs part of its celebration of Black History Month, MTV2 will air "Worldwide Thing: Africa," a half-hour special showcasing videos by Africa's biggest hip-hop artists.

Hosted by Ludacris, the special will feature artists from Senegal to the Ivory Coast. During the show, Luda will also share his experiences performing with Skwatta Kamp and 2 Face in South Africa and Nigeria.

"In my opinion Africa is the biggest untapped hip-hop market in the world," said Ludacris via a statement. "So many creative artists have a real life story to tell and I instantly connected to them and their music. I am just as much a fan of there work as they are of mine."

In related news, Luda will again be on the small screen in March when he guests on NBC's "Law & Order: SVU." Luda will play a Darius, a relative of Det. Odafin "Fin" Tutuola (Ice-T).
