UGA gives Ludacris liquor, condoms and 65K to perform at G-Day
ATHENS, GA. - Kirby Smart wasn't too happy with Ludacris' contract for performing at G-Day
Smart, the University of Georgia's head football coach, went on The Paul Finebaum Show on ESPN Radio Thursday, and he was asked about his reaction to the details of the agreement that included UGA providing Ludacris with liquor and condoms.
"To be honest with you, I didn't have much of a reaction. I wasn't privy to the contact and didn't see much about it. I've only seen the publications of it, and obviously we have to do a better job of managing the situations like that."
Georgia paid Luadcris $65 thousand in addition to food and supplies such as six bottles of liquor and condoms for performing Saturday at G-Day, the football team's intrasquad spring scrimmage.
The contract between Ludacris and Georgia was released by the Macon Telegraph through an Open Records Request.
Ludacris performed for a grand total of 15 minutes, which means he was paid $4,333.33 per minute.
1Alive has reached out to Ludacris' manager and University of Georgia Athletics Department for comment on the extensive nature of the contract, but they were not immediately able to respond.
Georgia announced Ludacris would be performing two days before G-Day after it looked like it had been unsuccessful in securing a performer. The team had expressed wanting a musical guest in an effort to fill Sanford Stadium, which has a seating capacity of 93,000. Georgia was able to fill the stadium Saturday.
