Before he became an actor and pop culture figure, Ludacris was known as one of the best Southern rappers. Here's our list of the best Ludacris albums, including pictures of the album covers. This Ludacris discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Ludacris albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Ludacris singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Ludacris album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves.

Along with fellow Atlanta rappers Andre 3000 and Big Boi of OutKast, Ludacris is one of the first of “Dirty South” rappers to receive mainstream success. After releasing his influential debut Back for the First Time (2000), Luda released a string of multi-platinum albums including Chicken-n-Beer (2003) and The Red Light District (2004), which made him one of the wealthiest artists in hip-hop.

Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Ludacris album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular. This list of popular Ludacris CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
