The release of Furious 7 is a bittersweet experience for the film's stars because promoting the film, which is the latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, means being constantly reminded that their late co-star Paul Walker is no longer with them.
Ludacris, who has been part of the franchise since its inception and counted Walker among his closest friends, is still reeling from the pain of that loss. We sat down with the rapper and actor to talk about Walker's legacy, which a visibly emotional Luda promises to uphold. When we ask the star what would be the first words he says to Walker when they meet on the other side, he seems to be fighting back the tears.
We also talk to Luda about his successful transition from rapper to actor, and the advice he would give to the new generation of "rap-tors" — from T.I. to A$AP Rocky — for surviving Hollywood.
Plus, we sit down with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for a candid conversation about which celebrity he would want to spy on for a day and the one thing he would regret not having — his answer may shock you!
