Walker is mentioned by Ludacris, as well “He was the most selfless person on the planet. He always believed in giving back… He never ceases to motivate and encourage me to achieve better.”

Although Walker is no longer with us, Ludacris highlighted that the actor’s legacy lives on through his 23-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker.

“He lives on through her and she is an extremely lovely human being,” he claims. “We’re able to slash and burn with her. I believe she is a consultant on [Fast X]. The legacy continues to thrive. It’s just incredible.”

Fast X is proof that the Fast and Furious series is still going strong, but how long will it continue to do so? “At least one of the two Fast 2 Furious films was something that made me giddy with excitement. Fast 5-6-7-8-9-10, out of this world, fantastic,” Ludacris adds, adding that he “will be precisely found.” “When the series ultimately comes to an end.

Ludacris is confident that he and his co-stars, including Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, and others, will remain friends even after the series ends.

“Fast and his family really are like a normal family off-screen. In the entire universe, we are the luckiest cast members. In most movies, when the director yells “Cut,” everyone goes their separate ways “he utters the words.

“Our children have a good understanding of one other. They’re practically best pals… We enjoy it because our kids know it’s Uncle Vin. ‘Oh, that’s Uncle Tyrese,’ I said. That they call them uncle is the best thing in the world.”

In addition to being a member of the Fast clan, Ludacris credits his children, Karma, 20, Cai, 8, Cadence, 7, and Chance, 11 months, as major sources of creative inspiration in his music.

“They’ve got me, all of them, in their grip,” he says. “The nicest part of being a girl dad is that they encourage me to do things like [Karma’s World] because I want the world to be a better place for them.”

Ludacris’ oldest daughter Karma, whom he named his animated Netflix series, which recently debuted its third season, after, is a prime example of it.
