Luda explains that his upcoming mixtape is a giveaway to fans to thank them for the support.

Before dropping his new album Ludaversal, Ludacris plans to release a mixtape as a gift to fans. Speaking with Shade 45’s Sway Calloway, the rapper-turned-actor revealed the tape’s title as 1.21 Gigawatts and explained how the release will blow listeners away.

“We’ll put a mixtape out before we get it all the way right. I’m actually doing a mixtape and it’s called 1.21 Gigawatts on y’all asses, get ready for it," he said. "Gigawatts, that equals to a billion watts and so we basically taking it out of control. This whole thing is something you’re going to pump louder than anything you’ve ever heard in your life, basically. It’s definitely for the streets."

Luda, who hasn’t dropped a mixtape in nearly a decade, said that the street release is something he feels he owes fans after years of shying away from the mixtape grind.

“It’s been a decade. We celebrating a lot of platinum hits and it’s just something I feel like I want to do for my fans, man. Just give it back. Appreciation,” he continued.
