Ludacris: I want Slim Shady song

Ludacris is set to release his eighth album this year

Ludacris has revealed he would like to work with Eminem.

The US star has his eye on a collaboration with the tough-talking rapper following his work with other stars such as Timbaland, Snoop Dogg, Usher and Kanye West.

"I would love to work with Eminem, so we have to make that happen one day," he said.

Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Bridges, is set to release eighth album Ludaversal this year, 13 years after his 2000 debut Back For The First Time.

"I can't tell you about the album yet, but there's a song called Rest Of My Life at the end of Fast And Furious 6 featuring Usher, which is a really great song," he teased.

The 35-year-old said he's still passionate about making music: "I got it, man. I'm still hungry. Music is still my first passion and love so I think as long as I stay hungry, and as long as I'm motivated by other musicians and artists, then I'm never gonna lose that affinity for music."

Ludacris has reprised his role as street racer Tej Parker alongside Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Paul Walker in Fast And Furious 6, which opens in cinemas on May 17.

"There's always competition on set because you've got a bunch of people who are so competitive. That's what makes this movie franchise so good," he said.

"Everybody's in competition with one another but at the same time, we are all family and we all love each other. But that's what keeps us driving, motivated and continue trying to up one another."

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
