American Radio: According to Production Weekly, rapper Ludacris is set to star in the feature film American Radio, which is scheduled to shoot in Los Angeles in early May.

"Radio," written and directed by Gary Hardwick, tells the story of a Hip Hop intellectual and DJ extraordinaire Kwame (Ludacris) who hosts a popular early morning LA radio show with his crew.

Preparing for Kwame's brithday concert and freestyle rap contest that night, Kwame and his crew have a confrontation with their rivals in which one gets shot an winds up in a police station just hours before the concert. As they recount their day to the cops, we see their outrageous and hilarious radio show, as well as two rapper hopefuls who have their own obstacles to cross before they get to the concert.
