If you missed Ludacris last November at his Exo listening party, don't act a fool. Dust off your gators, call up the homies and roll out, because the South's Jay-Z is back in town, and he's had time to supersize his latest album, Theater of the Mind. Unless you're Bill O'Reilly, or someone who ran against Obama, Luda's self-aggrandizing lyrics will do what they're supposed to do: make you laugh out loud, bust out your inner freak and get, get rid of that headache. Whether he's describing your wildest fantasies, a bout of road rage or just reciting a list of area codes from his cell phone, Luda can always be counted on for quotable lyrics full of precision and crisp hilarity. T.I., who's headed to jail in March because of federal weapons charges, is also performing.
