Tickets are on sale now and available for purchase at La Capitol Credit Union on the ULM campus and also at

Tickets are $10 for student general admission, $15 for student floor tickets, $25 for general/second student admission and $30 for general floor tickets.

Ludacris has sold more than 12 million albums domestically due to such singles as "Stand Up," "Get Back," "Number One Spot" and "Money Maker," all tied to videos accenting his willingness to stretch the boundaries of what rap videos should look and feel like.

As his web site states, Ludacris has “an unrivaled match of lyrical acumen, wit and imagery, (and he) has solidified himself as one of music’s premier entertainers.” Best known for his infectious tunes, Ludacris has also shown deftness at writing about serious subjects, such as the plight of runaways in "Runaway Love."

Ludacris knows that rap is essentially a man’s world, so on his eighth album the multi-platinum rapper crafted “Battle Of The Sexes,” according to his Web site. The “spirited” collection gives men and women equal billing.
