Career Moves: Ludacris Inks Deal With AT&T

Ludacris never fails to amaze me when it comes to his career moves. The rapper which is most known for his chart-toppers like “Money Maker” and “Runaway Love”, has landed a deal with US wireless carrier AT&T. The deal involves Ludacris, appearing in online and television ads to promote their services. The commercials will be hitting a tv screen near you starting next month. No word on how much he exactly got paid but it’s set to be in the multi-millions.

I always find it interesting how rappers remain to stay relevant without putting out a consistent amount of music. Ludacris is one of those guys where you might here him on a song or two, maybe even a remix, but every time you hear him he’s still on top of his game.

I just learned that Will Smith is otherwise known as “Mr.July”, because all of his movies come in at No.1 in July. Hancock is his fifth movie to open at No. 1 over the Fourth of July. The others were “Men in Black” and its sequel, “Independence Day” and “Wild Wild West.” Will Smith currently gets paid an average of $20 million per film.

Career Moves: Omarion Signs With Timberland’s Record Label

In April, we heard about Omarion being dropped from Columbia Records. I guess Columbia thought he wasn’t bring in much success while on Columbia Records. Omarion released two solo albums for the record company including 2005’s ‘O’ and 2006’s ’21.’ Both albums which only went certified gold. In December of 2007, Omarion partnered with Bow Wow on the album, ‘Face Off.’ The album was very much a failure considering it only sold 329,348 units according to Wikipedia.
