Ludacris is back and in full effect. Last week, the Atlanta hip hop veteran liberated a new single titled “Butter.ATL,” a nod to the social and marketing platform of the same name. The track quickly proves that Luda hasn’t lost a lyrical step, and is filled with the aggressive rhymes that the future hall of famers is so well-known for:
“It’s the return, ain’t nobody messin’ with a brother named Luda’, no matter how hard you try, top 5 dead or alive, look in my eyes, realize I ain’t tellin’ no lies, I, came in the game with a chip on my shoulder, had to brush it off, a couple million dollars worth of drip, but I’m cut from a different cloth…”
In addition to the She’kspere-produced cut, fans can also check Luda out in a humorous Jif Peanut Butter commercial. Directed by Dave Meyers, the minute and a half-long clip sees a cameo from Gunna and is centered around Luda struggling to record “Butter.Atl” — all before Jif’s product helps to take things to the next level:
The past few years have seen Ludacris focusing more on his acting chops, appearing in films like last year’s John Henry and last June’s ninth installment of the Fast & Furious series. There have been a few loose cuts liberated by the Disturbing Tha Peace head honcho, including “Vitamin D” with Ty Dolla $ign, “Vices,” and “Found You” with Chance The Rapper — he also provided show-stealing verses on tracks like Usher’s “SexBeat,” Pitbull’s “Tell Me Again,” and Conway The Machine’s “Scatter Brain.” His last full-length LP — 2015’s Ludaversal, his ninth — saw 14 cuts (with an additional four on the deluxe edition) and notable contributions from Big K.R.I.T., Miguel, Monica, Rick Ross, John Legend, CeeLo Green, and more.
Press play on Ludacris’ “Butter.Atl.”
