When the Dirty South movement broke nationwide, Ludacris rode it to immediate widespread popularity. In 2000, the Atlanta-based rapper signed to Def Jam's newly established Southern rap subsidiary, Def Jam South, and became the label's flagship artist. "What's Your Fantasy?" began a long string of hits that would include Billboard Hot 100 number ones ("Stand Up," "Money Maker") and Top Tens ("Move Bitch," "Splash Waterfalls," "Pimpin' All Over the World"), as well as a bunch of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Top Tens ("Southern Hospitality," "Area Codes," "Get Back"). Ludacris also became a reliable featured guest, and a popular actor, best known for a recurring role in the Fast and the Furious series. ~ Jason Birchmeier
