Ludacris Addresses Katt Williams' Illuminati Claims, Sparking a Divisive Reaction Among Fans
In the almost three-hour podcast, Williams alleged that both he and Ludacris were invited to an Illuminati event and that one of them had to make a significant personal sacrifice. According to Williams, Ludacris ended up with the movie deal, while he himself had to cut off his hair points. The comedian also took a personal dig, describing Ludacris' wife as "light-skinned with an ugly face."

Ludacris quickly countered with a freestyle, dismissing the Illuminati claims and defending his personal life. He asserted, “Never been Illuminati, only Ill-Luda-nati/ And I only left with bitches when coming from any party/ Now I’m married with kids, the evolution of life/ Never been a clout-chaser, never say shit for likes.” Ludacris also paid tribute to late filmmaker John Singleton and addressed Williams' alleged history of drug use.
Fans and fellow artists applauded Ludacris for his lyrical response. Former collaborator Shawnna expressed excitement, commenting, “Give us MORE!! [crown emojis].” DJ Clinton Sparks praised Ludacris for his skills, stating, “Luda does NOT get the rap credit he undoubtedly deserves. One of the best at punchlines and metaphors period. #getfamiliar.”
The feud between Ludacris and Katt Williams adds a new chapter to their history, as the two artists had collaborated on the 2004 single "Pimpin’ All Over the World," reaching No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and featured on Ludacris' album The Red Light District.
This back-and-forth showcases Ludacris' resilience and ability to respond creatively to personal and professional criticism. It remains to be seen if Katt Williams will respond to Ludacris' freestyle or if this marks the end of their public spat.
