NEW YORK — [artist id="961097"]Ludacris[/artist] poked fun at Tiger Woods’ sex scandal on the intro to his new track “Sexting” from his forthcoming Battle of the Sexes album (due March 9), intimidating the embattled golf star’s frantic voice mail to one of his alleged mistresses.
But the Atlanta rapper said there are no hard feelings behind the jab.
“If I’m making fun of Tiger Woods, I’m also making fun of myself,” Luda told MTV News from Madison Square Garden before he took the stage Wednesday (February 24).
On the Neptunes-produced song, “Sexting,” Luda raps about his own tale of sex addiction. “My girl went through my cell phone,” he spits, explaining how he got caught. Throughout the track, the Luda-as-Tiger voice mail plays. Luda said the track is only a reflection of reality.
“This is what happens,” he explained of the inspiration behind the song. “So I’m just bringing to light what’s really going on in the world .”
So, does Luda have a take on Tiger’s message to his mistress?
“It’s very entertaining,” he laughed. “And I do feel as though he may have handled it wrong.”
Ludacris, however, said he’d offer Tiger some advice — especially if the golf legend feels slighted by song.
“I would say, ‘Let’s go play some golf and talk about it,’ ” he offered. “I take that back — I’d say, ‘Let’s go to the sex-rehab place together and let’s discuss it. Let me know where your sex-rehab place is and I’ll let you know where mine is. We got some things to get off our chest.’
