Here’s the Reason Ludacris’ Abs Look Super Fake in His New ‘Vitamin D’ Video

When the rapper, 39, dropped his new “Vitamin D” music video (featuring Ty Dolla $ign) on Monday, April 10, the Twitterverse exploded with accusations that Ludacris’ chiseled six-pack looked super fake. Well, they were right: That rock-solid torso was courtesy of CGI technology. 

But the star insists he wasn’t trying to pull a fast one. Later that night, the “Rollout” artist told King Gossip that anyone who thought he was trying to fool fans doesn’t know him very well. 

To prove his point, Ludacris reminded the site of another music video, 2004’s “Get Back,” where he also rocked electronically enhanced arm muscles. Touché.
