Atlanta-based entertainers Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Keith Sweat were among the seven artists who were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame during a ceremony on Saturday.

 

      “And just think 10 years ago I was trying to put pizzas through the oven at Pizza Hut to make sure I didn’t get fired,” Luda told the audience gathered at the Georgia World Congress Center. “Now the only way I’ll get fired is if I fire myself, so that’s a beautiful thing right now for sure.”

 

       Ludacris, whose new album “Theater of the Mind” is due Nov. 11, is the Georgia Music Hall of Fame’s first rapper to be inducted. He was introduced by Atlanta’s Mayor Shirley Franklin.        

       The artist did not perform, but Keith Sweat sang a few of his numbers to mark the celebration of his 23 years in the music industry.      

       The evening’s other inductees were Widespread Panic, Dottie Rambo, Hamp Swain and Fred and Dinah Gretsch.
