Ludacris – Freaky Thangs Feat. Twista & Jagged Edge
In 2001, Ludacris was one of the biggest rappers in the world. By the time he dropped Word Of Mouf in November, the project was among the year’s most anticipated, backed by singles like “Rollout,” “Area Codes,” “Saturday,” and “Move Bitch.”
In truth, the entire album is lined full of top-to-bottom bangers, but late-game sex anthem “Freaky Thangs” stands among the upper echelon selections.
Shamelessly bawdy, hilarious, and tantalizingly X-Rated, the seductive banger finds Luda and Twista going back and forth over some Bangladesh production.
Up-tempo and lined with Luda’s signature wit, the Atlanta legend dubs himself “the ding-a-ling king” with a noted sense of pride.
Twista is more than willing to match Luda’s energy, calling himself “Mr. Magilla-cutty,” seeker of “booties soft as silly putty.”
The track is masterful in its arrangement, and every new verse finds the rappers experimenting with different flow schemes, with Luda displaying some true versatility.
