Ludacris' progressive album
Ludacris claims his 8th album 'Ludaversal' will show his "progression" as an artist
Ludacris' 8th album is a "progression" on his previous work.
The Atlanta-based rapper will soon release his new LP 'Ludaversal', and hopes fans of his unique style of rapping will see a new side to him.
He said: "This album 'Ludaversal', it's all about progression. We're taking it to heights that you never, never seen before.
"I've had seven albums, so right now it's about trying to go to places that I haven't been."
Ludacris - who has worked with the likes of Justin Bieber and Missy Elliott in the past - believes the new sound is heavily influenced by his travels around the globe.
He added to MTV News: "I've been over the world for the past year and I brought a lot of experiences back with me and put them in the music. I've had a lot of personal experiences, so you're going to get to know the real me and things that have been going on over the past three or four years."
The album is due to be released on September 11.
