Ludacris's incredible rider demands on top of $65,000 fee for 15-minute performance revealed


Ludacris's sensational rider for a recent performance has been revealed and included condoms, candles, incense and an electric toothbrush.

The American rapper also demanded at least 17 varieties of drink, from Patron Silver tequila to two cases of Snapple including raspberry, kiwi, strawberry and grapeade, as well as dry skin cream and a Small Secret deodorant, on top of the $65,000 (£45,000) fee for a 15-minute performance at the University of Georgia, US.

That's approximately £3,000 a minute, not forgetting the 12 "must be clean, NO OLD" towels, plus various snacks including organic jelly.

The incredible contract for G-Day, the university's spring football game at Sanford Stadium, Georgia, was revealed online after an Open Records Request by the Macon Telegraph.

Ludacris was very specific with his rider requests for example the incense was Nag Champa, orange juice Tropicana, jelly "strawberry or grape only" and condoms Trojan Magnum (ecstasy).

The Macon Telegraph reports he did not play quite the full 15 minutes to the packed stadium of 93,000 people. During that time, he reportedly sang Stand Up, What's Your Fantasy?, Money Maker and his verse from Usher's Yeah.

Kirby Smart, the University of Georgia's head football coach, went on The Paul Finebaum Show on ESPN Radio following the revelations of the incredible contract.

As the clip show, he said:"To be honest with you, I didn't have much of a reaction. I wasn't privy to the contact and didn't see much about it. I've only seen the publications of it, and obviously we have to do a better job of managing the situations like that."
