Ludacris names Teddy as the Korean musician he wants to meet the most

American hip hop artist Ludacris will be meeting up with YG Entertainment on September 20th to sign a collaboration agreement.

He’s already caused some considerable excitement in the Korean music industry, and that got amplified even further after he named the label’s in-house producer, Teddy, as the Korean musician he’d like to meet the most.

Ludacris chose Teddy once he was told that the majority of YG Entertainment’s hip hop music was produced by him. The rapper had previously stated that YG had the best songs that had more than enough competitive edge for the worldwide market.”

Ludacris then elaborated on why he chose Teddy, saying, “Teddy is a talented producer that knows how to bring in the club tunes and electronic hip hop elements that are so popular all over the world right now to fit Korean culture. I highly praise his composing skills because he’s able to bring in different elements like electronic and rock into traditional hip hop.”

Stay tuned for their press conference on September 20th.
