The Hollywood Walk of Fame is renowned for immortalizing some of the most iconic figures in the entertainment industry. In a recent momentous event, the multi-talented artist Ludacris, born Christopher Brian Bridges, was honoured with a well-deserved star on this prestigious walkway. Recognized for his ground-breaking contributions to music, acting, and philanthropy, Ludacris has left an indelible mark on popular culture. Here we celebrate his remarkable journey and the significance of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

During the Los Angeles ceremony on Thursday, the Stand-Up rapper thanked his family, fans, and “the people who showed up for me”. He was joined by rappers LL Cool J and Queen Latifah, and his Fast and Furious co-star Vin Diesel.

“No matter what people say I can’t do, I will continue to shatter those stereotypes and show people it’s possible in order to make everyone who got me here proud,” he told the attending crowd, via Sky News. “This means that I’ve made my mark… I went from being a young man with a dream to having my name cemented in one of the most visited places on Earth.”

Along with his starring in the Fast & Furious franchise – which to date has amassed global box office earnings more than US $1.7 billion (£1.36 billion) – Ludacris has sold more than 24 million albums worldwide.

The actor and rapper were also surprised by an appearance from his daughter, Karma Bridges, who had previously told him she would not be in Los Angeles to attend the event.

Karma described her father as “my rock, my hero” and “the perfect example of a father”.

Ludacris’ star is the 2,756th on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ludacris burst onto the scene in the early 2000s as a rapper and quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with. Born in Champaign, Illinois, Ludacris found his passion for music at a young age. His distinctive style, lyrical prowess, and captivating stage presence propelled him to the forefront of the hip-hop industry.
