Ludacris presented with an honorary degree from Goergia State University


Christopher Brian Bridges, also known as Ludacris, has been presented with an honorary bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University.

On Wednesday, the rapper and actor spoke to over 800 master’s degree graduates to kick off the school’s Commencement Week.

Ludacris, who was a student at the elite university before leaving to pursue his music career, used the chance to tell the graduates that his heart never left the campus and that signing with Def Jam was a “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

He praised GSU for having its first African-American president in a century, as well as graduating more African-Americans than any other university in the country.

“I can see now, this is the livest graduation in history right now,” said Ludacris to GSU’s Class of 2022.

“Walking to the podium with Atlanta swagger and his shades, GSU awarded the Grammy-award-winning rapper a Bachelor of Science in Music Management, a nod to when he first stepped foot on campus to learn “the business behind the music.”

“This is very special to me,” the rapper said after proudly holding up his first degree,” he said.
