Ludacris gives away 20 cars


has given away 20 cars last Sunday in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia as part of his Ludacris Stimulus Package contest, where participants wrote a 300-word essay about their struggles.

The award winning rapper teamed up with Ludacris Foundation and Nissan South to give away 20 used vehicles to those who need it, free gas for 30 days included.

“People are getting laid off, and now are looking for jobs,” Ludacris said. “To be efficient, you need some transportation of your own to get there. That’s why I wanted to give back to those who need it.”

Roberta Shields, president of Ludacris foundation said, “This year we want to do something to help youth and families manage during these tough economic times. Having a vehicle to get back and forth to work and daycare can make the difference in getting and keeping a job”.
