    When I first heard about Ludacris coming to MTSU I didn’t think much of it. I definitely didn’t think I would remember this for the rest of my life. My first thought was that Ludacris was too old of a rapper to come to a college. I’m a big hip hop fan and he isn’t an artist that is trending right now. He is a legend but I didn’t think that would make much of a difference. This was my first thought my second thought was that since I have been attending MTSU, there hasn’t been too much on campus that has stuck in my head like this article proclaims the Ludacris concert will do. After that thought I started to listen to some Ludacris songs to try to get a feel on what his concert would be like. That helped a little but I still didn’t get any tickets. I did start to think it would be an interesting thing to check out. That was in March then April came and school was getting down to the rough edges and I was feeling more and more like I needed another break. I really wasn’t thinking about the Ludacris show at all and then a professor of mine asked the class about it and surprisingly quite of few people said they were going to attend it. At this point in the semester I felt like I needed anything for an excuse to have fun but I still didn’t get a ticket thinking I was too old because most of the people that said they were going were freshman and sophomores. So April 6th comes and I go to all my classes and comes to find out I don’t have any homework for the weekend other than what I am doing now so I wanted to do something for fun. I ask my girlfriend, being funny if she wanted to go see Ludacris and she said yes. I found myself struggling to find something to wear while trying to see if they still had tickets left. I was sure they did and they did. We got their a hour after the doors opened and what I saw from the parking lot shocked me. The parking lot was full we actually had to look for a parking spot. We finally got one and walked into the gym. I was amazed at the crowd and the mixture of the crowd. There was a lot more people that were excited to see Ludacris than I thought would be and they showed it when he came out by making a lot of noise! Turns out it was an amazing concert and I can definitely say I will remember this day forever. Ludacris came and rocked the show and showed me that people of diversity can come together and have fun in 2017. I hope MTSU continues to have events like this
