Rap Artist Ludacris Trades the Studio for the Kitchen in discovery+ Special “Luda Can’t Cook”

Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is a hip-hop icon, accomplished actor and successful restaurateur who is passionate about food – but he knows he “can’t cook a lick.” In the one-hour discovery+ special Luda Can’t Cook, from record breaking producer Will Packer, Ludacris gets schooled in the kitchen by James Beard Award-nominated Chef Meherwan Irani to up his culinary game with international flavors and techniques. Indian cuisine is one of Luda’s favorites and Chef Irani gives him a master class in the foundations, from layering spices to frying and braising and making curry. Then in a test of his newly acquired culinary skills, he cooks and serves a menu of Indian dishes Ludacris-style to a room of VIPS, including his mom Roberta. Luda Can’t Cook begins streaming on Thursday, February 25th, exclusively on discovery+. The series is produced for discovery+ by executive producers Packer and Kelly Smith from Will Packer Media and Matt Kelly and Mike Sorenson from Anomaly Entertainment.

“I absolutely love food and have always appreciated the art of cooking, but I can’t lie – I have no idea what I’m doing in the kitchen,” said Ludacris. “I’m on a mission to change that and master one cuisine at a time – it’s going to be delicious.”

“The juxtaposition of a uniquely talented mega star like Luda against a backdrop that he has no real knowledge or skill set in makes for some highly entertaining shenanigans!” said Will Packer.

The career of the multitalented Chris “Ludacris” Bridges can best be described as remarkable. As a recording artist, he has sold more than 24 million albums worldwide. With an unrivaled match of lyrical acumen, wit, and imagery, Ludacris has solidified himself as one of music’s premier entertainers. His versatility and artistic complexity also enabled him to make a seamless transition to acting, including the starring role of “Tej” in the box office phenomenon Fast & Furious franchise. A consummate businessman, Ludacris is also enjoying success outside of entertainment. He is a restaurateur and owns Chicken-n-Beer in Atlanta and his philanthropic endeavors include the educational platform Kid Nation and The Ludacris Foundation, which focuses on helping youth in his hometown Atlanta.

Viewers can follow #LudaCantCook for exclusive sneak peeks of Ludacris’ journey into the kitchen. Fans wanting more can visit DiscoveryPlus.com and follow along on social for more about the show.

[NEW MUSIC] YAYVO – “TRENCH COAT(123 START)”| @Yayvo

West Coast Artist, Yayvo rises above life challenges and delivers “Trench Coat(123 Start)

 

yayvoYayvo has always strived to demonstrate his artistic abilities through music. He became influenced by well-known artists such as Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac. Having grown up in the Oak Park neighborhood in Sacramento, California, Yayvo never expected to be given the opportunity to create music of his own. For years, he was met with many social and financial challenges. Despite such challenges, his parents provided him with the tools necessary to cultivate his natural talent.

At age ten, he moved to the Bay Area, located in Northern California. During his middle school years, his talent quickly became recognized by his friends and family after releasing his first song, “It’s All About Me.” The song expressed Yayvo’s tendency to the old school West Coast hip hop style.

Yayvo initially formed a small music group known as “Young Loyal Fellaz” with a close friend from school. After a few years, he left the group in order to pursue his solo career. He recorded five songs of various genres such as hip hop and R&B. The songs were sold as demos throughout California, creating a sense of statewide recognition. At fifteen years old, Yayvo became a high school sensation of sorts. This further motivated him to create a studio at his own home, where he continued to write and produce captivating music. While he knew of his local success, Yayvo felt the need to expand his fan base: to share his unique style with more people. With such unyielding motivation, Yayvo was able to perform at local parties and clubs around the Bay Area and Los Angeles. The acknowledgment he acquired from his fan base increased, but Yayvo wanted to ensure its continual expansion. Today, Yayvo devotes his life to writing, producing, and releasing new music.
