You might be surprised to hear this, but before Ludacris became a multiplatinum-selling, multi-award-winning rapper, in addition to being a top-billing actor in Hollywood, he got his start as a radio intern in the ’90s under the tutelage of our very own Ryan Cameron!

It’s led to a decades-spanning friendship that recently had a reunion when RC stopped through a press junket to see Luda’s newly-released Disney+ film, Dashing Through The Snow.

Joined by fellow industry homie Will Packer, who adds Dashing to his acclaimed list of Christmas films as a producer, it was clear to see that this was a conversation between the guys as opposed to a formal interview. In addition to talking about the importance of adding a new Black narrative to the holiday movie roster, all three men shared a few throwback stories that will really make you wish you were there.

Dashing Through The Snow is a hilarious and touching story about an Atlanta social worker’s Christmas Eve journey with his daughter that helps him to remember the joy and magic of the yuletide season.

Eddie Garrick is a good-hearted man who has turned his back on Christmas due to a traumatic childhood experience. At the request of his wife Allison, Eddie, who is a social worker, takes their nine-year-old daughter Charlotte to work with him on Christmas Eve, where they meet a mysterious man in a red suit named Nick.

Eddie thinks the man is delusional and needs professional help, but when he evokes the wrath of a local politician, he and Charlotte are taken on a magical adventure that just might restore his faith in Christmas.

Watch Ludacris and Will Packer above on this special segment of Ryan Cameron Uncensored, and stream Dashing Through The Snow today and for the rest of the holiday season over on Disney+

Basketball star Kyrie Irving captured the media’s attention when he faced allegations of anti-Semitism due to a social media post containing a link to the film, “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.” Succumbing to external pressure, Irving removed the controversial post and offered a public apology. Nonetheless, upon further examination of the circumstances, it appears that Irving might have been criminally deprived of his rights, and could potentially possess a legal claim against his former employer for violating contractual terms.
