This just in, The Underground Chicago announces Ludacris for their first Lolla after shows on Friday August 4th!

Personally, we can't believe the famed 26 year old festival is only a few weeks away. It's already time to plan which stages you and the gang will be hitting and which Lollapalooza after parties you'll be attending. With the fest being so big this year, the city will be full of celebs & artists alike. No matter your musical preference, there will be plenty of options. Based on the sheer amount of Lolla aftershows happening that weekend, the time to plan your itinerary is now!

All that said, we want to take this moment to dive into the artist we all know as Luda. Do you have any favorite Luda moments? How about any hot tracks? Are you a fan of him in the Fast in the Furious movies? With his flow & acting style full of humor, our favorite Ludacris moments come from his Chicken N Beer album persona. Who can forget critically acclaimed songs like Stand UpBlow It Out, P-Poppin, and Act a Fool. While we hope this is what the 3 time Grammy award winner will play for his Lolla Aftershows appearance, seems like he'll drop tracks from his more recent album Ludaversal.

Haven't heard this album yet? It's much more introspective than what you'd expect from the one-time hype rapper. Hopefully, being the intelligent guy he's known to be, he gets where he's hopping on the stage at. Those who attend the Underground Chicago Lolla after shows are looking to see Roll Out, Move Bitch, Area Codes, Saturday Ludacris. Due to this club's primary demographic being an older more 80s/90s oriented crowd, he won't get much reception if he does otherwise. Rather than pushing his new vibes, he needs to give the people of this venue what they want!

With so many options, this year's lineup of Lollapalooza after parties look solid.
