The Only Thing More Absurd Than The Amount Georgia Paid Ludacris To Play At Their Spring Game Was His Backstage Demands


Ludacris just made more money in 15 minutes than the average American makes in an entire year. Economies of scale is a bitch, man.

The University of Georgia’s football program played their annual spring game this past Saturday in front of 93,000 fans and hadn’t signed a performer until two days before the event. The time crunch allowed rapper Ludacris to essentially name his price. That price was $65,000.

So if you’re scoring at home, Ludacris banked $65,000 more than every player on the University of Georgia team who sold all the tickets. That’s like buying all the supplies for a party, setting up for it, getting a concussion, and then having Ludacris show up with a duffle bag and jack all the beer. Seems fair.

Oh ya, and to top it off, Ludacris’ dressing room demands were also granted. I don’t know if he was preparing for the apocalypse, going camping for the summer, or just wanted to flex, but his rider sheet was preposterous.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
