Every year around this time, Ludacris goes through his contacts and brings out a ton of his celebrity friends to help him give back to the community through his non-profit Ludacris Foundation and celebrate Labor Day Weekend (which he renamed to “LudaDay Weekend”).

And last Thursday night (Sep 2) Luda kicked off LudaDay Weekend with a private dinner at his famous Straits restaurant in Atlanta, where he was joined by the likes Kelly Rowland, Sean Garrett, Keshia Knight Pulliam, ATL Mayor Kasim Reed and more.
