Since Ludacris’ sixth studio album, Theater of the Mind, is intended to have a cinematic feel, it’s understandable that the project features numerous “co-stars,” including (but not limited to) Chris Brown, T-Pain, The Game, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and (fittingly) Spike Lee.  And like all good movies, there is at least one scene that stands out above the rest; on Theater that scene is I Do It For Hip Hop. As he explains his true motivation for being an emcee (which has nothing to do with money, cars, or chains), Luda is joined by the most famous of his Def Jam labelmates, Jay-Z and Nas, each of whom goes back to the very beginning in their respective verses.  The buzz behind this record (as well as early holiday sales) has been so undeniable, that the label decided to push ahead the album’s release (along with Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak) one day to November 24.  If you, too, do it for hip-hop, you’ll scoop up a copy.
