Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Ludacris Cause Kanye West’s Career Catapulting Car Accident??!!


Man, DJ Whoo Kid’s got stories for days!! In the latest edition of “Whoo Kids Untold Stories,” the G-Unit DJ speaks about his studio session with Kanye West and Ludacris the night of Kanye’s life-changing car accident. As we all know, before Kanye West became known as one of the best rappers in the game, he was in a terrible accident back in 2002 that left his jaw broken in three places which had to be wired shut while it healed. Kanye was inspired to create “Through the Wire” and utilized actual footage from his recovery, which in turn, made him a household name and catapulted him to fame.

According to Whoo Kid, both Ludacris and Kanye West were in the studio with him to contribute to one of his mixtapes when Kanye went, well, all “Kanye” in the studio and spit for an hour straight in the booth. Luda didn’t know Kanye very well and was super annoyed with him for wasting his time, because basically Luda just wanted to come in, lay his verse down and bounce.

“So Kanye’s looking crazy, you know, trying to impress Luda, but it wasn’t that time. Luda wanted to come in, do that verse and get the f–k out. So, what made it worse is he went out there and played a beat but by the time he got out there, Luda picked a Red Spyda beat. So now I gotta tell Kanye ‘Your services are not needed.’”

According to Whoo Kid, Kanye left the studio angry and screeched out of the parking. Soon after Whoo Kid got a call that Kanye was in a car accident, that could have killed him. Check out Whoo Kid explaining the story below. The video includes actual footage from that night as well as Kanye predicting his success and relationship with Jay-Z. Interesting stuff!
