Ludacris Talks Oscar Picks & Rubbing Shoulders With Natalie Portman

As we learned at last week’s Sydney Good Vibrations Festival, ATL native Ludacris wields a surprisingly wide/deep knowledge base. From what it feels like to swing midgets from your necklace to hip hop’s legacy and (owing to his lead role in Paul Haggis’ ’05 Best Picture winner Crash) which actor-ly qualities Oscar voters covet most – the dude’s a wealth of quality information. Watch below as the rapper/actor/oracle talks Oscar predictions, the status of the latest Fast and The Furious sequel and what it’s like to rub body parts with Natalie Portman.

Merry Ludacrismas eeveryone.
