    On April 13, Ludacris performed for 13 minutes at Georgia’s spring game, and was paid $65,000 for it. His contract also included a pretty great rider, which you can read it full at the bottom of this post. It included condoms, juice boxes, and a couple of bottle of Ludacris’s own brand of cognac, and Georgia athletics would like you to know they’re very, very sorry.

    AD Greg McGarity apologized to the UGA athletics board of directors in a meeting yesterday.

    “I do want to take this opportunity to apologize to our board for mistakes we made with certain aspects of the details of an entertainment agreement,” McGarity said. “Few things in my professional life have bothered me more than this situation. There are no reruns in life so we need to turn the page, learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to make sure errors of this nature do not reoccur.”

    That’s kind of vague. What’s in that rider?

    Hey, fun.

    “Obviously in retrospect they should have done a more thorough job of reviewing all of the riders,” said UGA president Jere Morehead, “and removing those that were objectionable.”

    It it were me I’d be apologizing not for the rider and instead for paying Ludacris $65,000 for 13 minutes when they could’ve just given every player like 600 bucks instead, but hey, I’m not running the program.

    Pretty standard rider, meh.

    (WTF does Ludacris need cases of drinks for, for a 13 minute performance?!!! Must be stocking his tourbus...)

    They don't change the rider for each date, so it's the same ask as if he was doing a 2 hour show for 10000 people. The problem with college shows is they often have students or teachers advance the show. Any production manager with half a brain would've nixed the booze & condors immediately.

    just the alcohol ask is enough for a pretty good party but then throw in some organic peanut butter and organic jelly

    Oh yeah, I get that.

    I just wondered why he'd need so much other stuff for a 13 minute show.

    (BTW, who cares if they gave Luda and his posse condoms? A rider is a rider.)

    I'm puzzled about the incense and the scented candles....do you light them both at the same time; or do you do the incense before the show and the the candles after to reflect?

    Prolly together to set the mood, both before and after the show.

    JLo has all that stuff on her rider, and everything must be white, with drinks only in her dressing room, food stays outside.

    She likes expensive candles, too.

    I think riders are really interesting!!!

    Ludacris should be commended for promoting/encouraging safe sex for himself and those in his inside circle.

    because it was only for one box? How was Ludacris supposed to satisfy all those Atlanta coeds with just one box?
