Ludacris, The Roots team up for acoustic version of 'What's Your Fantasy'

Posted on

Against common wisdom, a 15-year-old hip-hop single is having a second life. Last week, a brave hero inquired how many of the 21 scenarios Ludacris depicted in “What’s Your Fantasy” became, well, not a fantasy—nine, by the way. Nine! Now the rapper has teamed with The Roots to perform a significantly stripped-down version for The Tonight Show. Luda’s mic is equipped with a GoPro, resulting in a too-close close-up of Chris Bridges staring back, talking about sex stuff. The original drips a filthy sexiness, while the Questlove-backed rendition neuters the initial rawness. But it somehow gains a modicum of sensuality and suaveness that Bangladesh’s production forbade. But it’s still fun! Watch below.
