According to Dawg Nation — the Atlanta rapper and actor pulled in $65,000 in an appearance fee — with a bevy of specific needs and requirements.
The Atlanta-based rapper reached out to UGA last Wednesday, a day after athletics director Greg McGarity went public that the school had been unable to book a pregame musical act. Ludacris’ contract was provided on Tuesday after an Open Records request.
UGA also agreed to a standard hospitality rider in the contract, which provided dinner (season grilled chicken breast, plus sides) to “at least 10 people,” or $40 per person in cash up front. It’s not clear which option UGA ultimately provided.
The contract also called on UGA to provide a dozen white towels.
“Must be clean; NO OLD TOWELS,” the contract stipulates.
Finally, there was a list of 42 items that UGA agreed to provide for Ludacris’ room. The items ranged from food (a loaf of whole grain bread) to supplies (batteries), wine (one bottle of red and one white), toiletries (a bar of soap) and a box of condoms (Trojan magnum brand).
He might have wanted his entourage or himself to be protected.
