A now-viral conversation between Shannon Sharpe and Katt Williams has sparked a lot of controversy.
During a January 2024 interview, Katt fired shots at several Hollywood icons and the comedian did not hold back. It seemed as if no one was off limits— including Ludacris. Now, it seems as though the two have beef.
Here's a breakdown of their feud.
Why are Katt Williams and Ludacris beefing? Details on their feud.
Katt nearly broke the internet when made startling allegations about Rickey Smiley, Steve Harvey, Ludacris, and a host of other notable figures to Shannon Sharpe on Club Shay Shay.
At one point, Shannon asked the First Sunday star if he was related to Ludacris, prompting Katt to tell a story about the Illuminati.
“There was a crossroads where we were both invited to an Illuminati thing, and it had to be one or the other of us – and decisions had to be made,” Katt said.
He added: “And the next person they said, was going to get $200 million because they were going to pay him $10 million a movie to do 20 movies. One of those persons turned out to be Ludacris and the other turned out to be Katt Williams.”
Now, Ludacris is disputing those claims and has taken a bold stance against Katt. Here is the creative way Ludacris chose to fire back.
Ludacris dropped a freestyle in response to Katt Williams's Illuminati allegations.
In addition to suggesting that Ludacris was a member of the Illuminati, Katt made brash comments about the Fast & Furious star’s wife. The sum of Katt’s comments was enough to prompt a response from Ludacris, who dropped a freestyle slamming the comedian for his claims.
“You never have to flex when you earn every one of your Fast & Furious checks,” Ludacris raps. “Afro with the sideburns, yeah that’s my signature. Addictions on the rise, comedians check your temperature.”
Fans of the rapper had mixed responses to the video. Some suggested that the rhymes were good, with folks like LaLa Anthony dropping fire emojis in support of her friend. But others thought Ludacris took the bait, as Katt Williams appeared to be trying to elicit a response with his claims.
The conversation prompted an investigation into both Ludacris and Katt's net worth.
