Ludacris Gets An Honorary Degree From Georgia State

Chris “Ludacris” Bridges was given an honorary Bachelors of Science in Music Management on Wednesday from Georgia State University.

He actually did go to school there in 1990s before landing a record deal with Def Jam Records, which led him to quit early.

He spoke to more than 800 master’s degree recipients saying:

“My time on campus sharpened my skills,” “It gave me confidence that my path was preordained. That I was exactly where I was supposed to be. Doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing.” “Though I left school I was never gone because this institution had become a part of me. It was a part of my fabric and DNA. My heart never strayed far from its steps and my commitment to someday return, and finish, was ever-present.”

He’s still actively involved with the university even though he never graduated.

He joined the Creative Media Industries Institute as an artist-in-residence in 2019, sharing his experience in the industry as well as partnering with the College of Law on a course dissecting his career.
