Ludacris seemed to have given his artists a real chance to succeed. Chingy went multi platinum, Bobby Valentino is 5 albums deep, wonder if he still owes Ludacris. Shawnna had hit songs, and could have been on a collab LP with Luda, but she thought running with T-Pain was a better look, didn't work out for her. Playaz Circle put out two albums, getting a second chance even after the first one bricked, and it could be argued it would have done way worse without Wayne's hook on Duffle Bag Boy. Hard to find a CEO outside of 50 who did better for more of their artists.
Agreed! And I think both of playaz circle albums came out on Def Jam. And Luda also put out that DTP presents compilation which showcased all the artist on the label. After leaving DTP most artist (outside of 2 Chainz) didnt succed (Bobby V, Field Mob, Shawnna, Chingy, etc.) but since 2 Chainz did succeed he should be the most appreciative cuz Luda never dropped Playaz Circle even tho neither album made a profit. All the connections and relationships Tity Boy built were off the strength of running with one of the most top selling southern artist of all time...Chris Bridges aka Ludacris.
