- Princess referred us to this guy named Chris Lover Lover. He had studied the game for a couple of years as a radio DJ. And he had had his product produced independently. - So they actually want to do an interview with you if you ready to talk to them right now. You gotta say, "Yes." Hold up, that's Chris on the radio. - Thanks. Chris, what up bruh. This is Maxie Collier. - And she put us on the phone with Chris Bridges, a.k.a Chris Lover Lover, a.k.a. Ludacris. - Can you handle a little bit of the mic too man? - I can handle the mic, man. - Alright, then give me a little something, man. I don't know man, tell me something.

(clapping) - Why don't you tell us about Disturbing the Peace Entertainment.
What it's all about. - Disturbing the Peace Entertainment is all about working from the ground up. If you can't see in your hometown, if you can't sell to the folks that live next door to you, or your neighbors then how the hell you gonna sell to anybody else? So, you trying to start out small and expand. That's the way to do it. Otherwise, you're gonna fall if you don't have a real strong foundation, and that's what Disturbing the Peace is all about. - (mute) deal with being broke, (mute) deal with not having no where to stay. Man, I go through suicidal thoughts everyday, you nah mean? (mute) Always go wrong. - It's all about building a foundation, and that's what we feel is most important.
Know what I'm saying? Putting our money together, and doing the thang independent, and doing it so that we have all creative control. And if you prove yourself, and prove that you can sell records on your own, then a record company just gives you money, and basically says, "Keep on doing what you're doing." Because you've already done it. You've already proven to us that everything you've done is okay. You know what I'm saying? It's better than okay, it's good. - Hey fellas, straight up. Much respect, like I said. Yo, I'm sure you guys are gonna take off because the spirit is there. The plan is there. (inaudible) Appreciate it, thank you.
- I'll be looking forward to the second interview after we go platinum and everything. You know, see how everything has been coming along. ♫ I'ma be with cheese, they got the block on ride. (laughter)
