Video: Ludacris Is Ready For The Georgia State-Samford Game On Friday

Everybody is excited about the start of college football season this week — it seems like last season ended about 30 years ago. Celebrity rapper and Atlanta native Ludacris is especially excited to get things going — he posted a special message for Georgia State promoting the season opener on Friday against Samford in the Georgia Dome.

Georgia State is transitioning into its first season as an FBS school, so it makes sense to use a well-known local figure to promote the team and create a little buzz.
