Ludacris And Ice-T Battle It Out Onscreen, Not On Set

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When it comes to rap battles, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges prefers to keep it in the recording studio and off TV or film sets.

The rapper/actor is appearing as Ice-T’s stepson on the season finale of Law & Order: SVU, and admits he and the rap legend didn’t have any urges to bust rhymes at each other between takes.

Says Ludacris: “I never rap at all when I’m on set...I focus on the acting. Ice-T and I would exchange old stories about stuff that happened to us on tour, but we never actually battled it out.”

Although the two were friendly on the set, Ludacris says they do battle it out onscreen – but it’s pure acting.

While things get heated on the show, Ludacris says the hardest conflict was internal.

He explains: “Half the battle was being comfortable in front of the cameras with a thousand people behind it watching my every move.”

As he puts it: “I’ve done videos before, but this is different.”

The Law & Order: SVU season finale airs May 22.
