This album was the defining example of Ludacris' fast, wild, and comedic flow, a unique style for southern rappers. Despite its poor sales, it was never deleted and is still sold today. Ludacris made his mark on the industry with singles such as "Southern Hospitality" and "What's Your Fantasy", along with his first ever single the "Phat Rabbit", from two years prior.
Ludacris also appeared on Timbaland's 1998 debut on "Phat Rabbit," a track that would later be used on his re-issue of "Incognegro" called "Back For The First Time". Guest appearances included 4-Ize, I-20, Shawnna, Pastor Troy, Timbaland, Trina, Foxy Brown, UGK, and others.
Neither of his new singles were as well received by either the urban or pop audiences as his previous songs had been, and both music videos received only limited airplay.
Chicken-N-Beer opened strongly, but without a popular single, the album fell quickly.
After a brief stint as a DJ, he released his first album Incognegro in 2000, followed by Back for the First Time also in 2000, which contained the singles "Southern Hospitality" and "What's Your Fantasy".
In 2001, he released Word of Mouf, followed by Chicken-n-Beer in 2003 and The Red Light District in 2004.
Ludacris filmed and recorded the single "Get Back" in which he was featured as a muscle-bound hulk who was being annoyed by the media and warned critics to leave him alone.
He took a more serious approach with his next two albums, Release Therapy (2006), and Theater of the Mind (2008).
His next record, Battle of the Sexes, was released in 2010 and featured the tone of his previous albums. As an actor, he has appeared in films including Crash (2004), Gamer (2009), and New Year's Eve (2011).
