I Do It for Hip-Hop

Album: Theater of the Mind (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This track features Nas and Jay-Z. Ludacris explained to MTV News that it was a collaboration that he had been waiting his whole career for: "The best way I can explain that s--t is that I feel like almost when you say, 'I've done that and can move on.' After doing a song with Nas and Jay-Z, I feel like a part of me is more complete than I was in hip-hop. I've always wanted to do something that extreme and historic in hip-hop."
