Incoming freshman of Clark University received a raucous welcome to the A-T-L courtesy of Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri, who performed their hit song, “Welcome to Atlanta,” for a surprised crowd of students attending an orientation session on Monday night.
The performance was apart of MTV’s new show “Jammed,” which will air in September. Clark University associate dean Rick Robinson told the Associated Press he expects the impromptu concert to increase the attendance of future scheduled events on campus.
“The next time we call a mandatory meeting, you can be sure they’ll all show up,” he said.
As for Ludacris, the DTP C.E.O. is currently putting the finishing touches on his next album, Chicken and Beer, which will feature collaborations with Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent. The southern rapper recently shot the video for the first single, “Stand Up,” in Los Angeles; and while in town, he also appeared in the video for protégé Chingy’s next single, “Holidae In,” which he is featured on, along with Snoop Dogg.
