Ludacris may dare jealous people to wish he were gone in the new single "Blow It Out," but at the same time he's been encouraging the good folks in Hollywood to place him on their casting wish lists.
Luda is in Los Angeles filming the movie "Crash" alongside Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Larenz Tate, Eva Mendez, Tony Danza and Matt Dillon. But long before that film hits theaters, fans will already be standing up, dancing and yelling to the sounds of Cris and another ensemble of characters: Disturbing Tha Peace. Tour dates have finally been put together for the family's road show, which will include camp members such as Chingy, Shawnna and I-20.
"I'm looking forward to it," Chingy said on a recent visit to MTV's Times Square studios. "We'll be coming to a city near you and it's going to be full of energy. Just a great tour."
Shawnna has her first album, Worth Tha Weight, coming out this year, and I-20 is putting the finishing touches on his debut full-length, Self Explanatory. Chingy's working on his second solo LP in addition to the first group effort from his other clique, the Get It Boys. The motley crew's boss plans to release his own album, The Red Light District, in November or December, but not before he pushes some more units of his current release, Chicken-N-Beer.
Luda has one video in the can with "Splash Waterfalls," and he plans to shoot a clip soon for "Blow It Out." There's no word on whether the "Blow It Out" video will be for the original album version or the remix featuring 50 Cent.
