After rapping for over a decade and racking up millions in album sales and royalties, a famed Atlanta rapper was spotted at a local gentleman’s club spending wads of cash at his own free will. Unfortunately for Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges, the rainmaking move has not come without criticism.
Ludacris, 34, was spotted at Diamonds gentleman’s club Thursday for a party celebrating the anniversary of V-103′s DJ Infamous. By his side was his girlfriend Eudoxie, rapper and “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast member; Lil Scrappy, DJ Trauma and his cousin, Monica, who all partied into the night while surrounded by scantily clad and completely nude women.
The rapper was also photographed with bottles of his signature Conjure cognac alongside stacks of dollar bills that reportedly added up to $10,000 in ones.
After his strip club adventure was first reported on entertainment site TMZ, the comments section exploded with criticism; “There is a reason most of these guys go broke,” wrote a viewer. “They have no respect for money. I guarantee you he has no idea what his net worth is.”
“That is so trashy, if that is your idea of a good time, I feel really bad for you,” chided another.
Despite the comments, Ludacris has appeared unshaken by the negativity and even retweeted a picture of his late-night adventure via DJ Infamous’ Instagram. “Shout Out My Brother @Ludacris We Shut Diamonds Of Atlanta Down,” wrote the DJ. “That we did!” the rapper added.
Ludacris’ recent $10,000 giveaway is minuscule compared to other rappers who’ve made thunderstorms of cash rain down on exotic dancers without even blinking.
