Hip-Hop star Ludacris has been named as the new Artist-In-Residence at the Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) at Georgia State.

"Georgia State is one of the most innovative and diverse universities in the country," Ludacris said in a statement. "I couldn't imagine a better place to work with students than CMII."

Born Christopher Brian Bridges, the 42-year-old singer is not only a talented musician but also a successful entrepreneur, actor and philanthropist.

Having released his 7th studio album, Ludaversal, in March of 2015, Ludacris opened his restaurant "Chicken + Beer" in the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, founded The Ludacris Foundation in 2001 and also executive-produced the last three seasons of MTV's "Fear Factor."

As Artist-In-Residence, Ludacris who took a music management course at the university between 1998 and 1999, will be closely working with professors and mentoring students.

"Chris is an incredibly talented artist and has so much industry knowledge to share," said Brennen Dicker, executive director of CMII. "We are excited to see how our students, and really the entire institute, will benefit from this great new partnership."
