Fast & Furious star and rapper Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges is a proud #girldad of four and he’s got a new Netflix series – Karma’s World based on his eldest daughter Karma Christine Bridges set to inspire the next generation to ‘change the world.’
The new animated series portrays lessons learnt during Karma, a young aspiring rapper’s childhood, teaches children ‘you are never too young to change the world’ and her journey towards learning to stay true to herself through her music while dealing with new challenges.
In a chat with Metro.co.uk the 44 year old disclosed having being inspired about the idea for the project 14 years ago when his daughter expressed interest in becoming a rapper.
The father-of-four stated: ‘We came up with this idea about a girl finding her voice and trying to change the world through music.
‘Now it’s launching around the world… We couldn’t be more proud because it’s gonna have a lot of young girls, and just children in general, feeling like they are not alone.’
‘A lot of episodes are based on things that happened in Karma’s real life. For example, there’s an episode based on her being proud of her hair and having different textured hair.’
The Fast and Furious actor explained becoming a parent made him eager to create a series that would speak to young children.
He stated: ‘Whenever you become a parent then you automatically start thinking about the next generation.
‘The whole reason that I did this show is to inspire and motivate people to be the next leaders and or the next great artist. I think that’s a whole new purpose in my lif,e outside of me being a good dad to my children. This is exactly what I set forth to do. I know it’s going to create a lot of good.’
Ludacris who voices Karma’s father in the series – added: ‘I have all daughters and it’s changed me for the better. I want to not only help my daughters out with their self-expression but to help all daughters and sons around the world, and even parents at this point.’
According to the rap star, music created for the show will be available on an accompanying soundtrack so Karma’s messages can be enjoyed at any time.
‘There’s not really been much great kids music out there, in my opinion. This stuff can compete against what’s on the Billboard 100 charts,’ he explained.
