Ludacris w/ Mary J. Blige - "Runaway Love" Video

Ludacris and Mary J Blige team up for the "Runaway Love" video, in which Luda portrays some sort of ninja who sneaks into Michael Rapaports house to catch him abusing his daughter. I like seeing Ludacris getting serious for a minute, hope the "grown man rap" movement keeps spreading.

this song made me cry! i think it is so good! Go Ludacris!!!!

Posted by: Amber at December 2, 2006 6:11 PM

This is what I call positive and I applaud this. My 14 year old daughter asked me to listen to this on my 42nd Birthday today ...I was skeptical of Ludacris, because how I was used to hearing him degrade women with vulgarity, but this time he made more sense as the Princess e Mary J. and he made me a beleiver.

i luv this song it is great

Posted by: Tyisha at December 2, 2006 8:30 PM

This song is tight I listen to it about 15 times a day I think that Ludacris And Mary J nail this one on the head!!!! This is like my first time seeing ludacris serious.It is always nice to see him care and actually talk about something positive instead of something negative!!!! Great job You should make another one just like this ludacris!!!!DO yo thing Mary!!!!

OMG this song is OFF DA CHAIN it raises serious issues which rap music does have once in a while (Twista-Hopeful,Kanye West-EVERYTHING except Goldigger, etc.)instead of that pimpin blockhead nonsense cos sumtimes ppl make all kindz of assumptions just by listenin to it down here in the streets of London i mean no offence but to clear this UP im Black and im NOT a ho ludaz blak and hes not a pimp-even tho he said he was but you know hes not hes too nice to be 1(even though that is a part of rap culture) . I've always loved Ludacris and his style and through all that Bill O'Reily crap(WHAT AN IDIOTIC HYPOCRITE !) but I kind of felt awkward about him because of all those songs he made about umm.. well-Being INTIMATE with women,(cos im a girl btw) even though we know that he only does it for entertainment purposes and he doesn't REALLY think like that-he has a daughter-Karma with his mystery girlfriend who IS she anyway?who stole luda away from me???(apart from maybe the small man part of him that all guys have that does )OMDzz the vid made me cry and it makes you think cos there are loads of girls with those problems everywhere it really affected me and that candle vigil thing at the end and errbody cumz 2gether and wen ericas cryin on the bench and Arrgh theres just so much 2 cnsider its like I luv it but everytime i listen to it it affects me in a different way.... Anyway sorry to go on BOTTOM LINE:
dis song is dah best i hope it wins every award its ever nominated 4. I luv u Luda !!! And Mary J hmm i didnt like her but shes startin 2 grow on me...

PS SOMEONE tell me are these based on true stories? because if they are i really WILL cry. I really wanna give Ludacris a hug-- hes the only one who could make this song and TRULY open my eyes i mean no offence Kanye or Twista but ...ahem you just cant beat Luda and this is his best song plus hes 222 buff for you man i mean look @ those eyes man u just CANT compete and his skin-i mean JEEZ
Sorry going on a again Thank you PPL!!

this is the est song ever the first time i hurd this song i was at my friend courtneys house and we lissend to this song and after the song was over we got to talking and the thing i said was that do u no how many kids have this happen to them every day and now when i here that song i get teers in my eyes and the song always gets me thinking.doesent make you?

Posted by: melissa at December 10, 2006 2:50 PM

I heard this song on my way to work three days ago on the radio. I could not get it out of my head all weekend. Every part of this story/song takes me back to my own childhood, it hurts to even remember, and while I hear Mary J and Ludacris sing with there hearts and I would have loved to have had some one run away with me or just say ..."everything's gonna be okay"---That is the one thing I have wanted to hear for many years. Being a parent now, I make sure when my child is having a bad day, I say those very words.
Thank you for creating such a beautiful song for all of us that have been threw/going threw/know people going threw or had been in situations like these.
It is a song that should remind us to open our hearts to everyone, because the people that we know the lease about--could be in need of our friendship, and need us to hold them up in the hard times. I'll runaway with you....

Posted by: chloe at December 13, 2006 7:53 PM

Luda is is a good song. I can relate to this song because I had some friends in Pontaic who have been throght these kind of things. I have a friend who is like (Erica).She felt that she needed it for him. And I think you made a good choice by useing a topic that didn't talk about women shaking their butts in the camera.

P.S. #1 fan!

Posted by: Brianna at December 17, 2006 4:20 PM

ludacris this is the number 1 song i love it keep on going. i also liked monemaker featuring pharell but i like this song because your talking about kids who are running away from there families this is the saddest song i ever saw when i see this video. keep it up luda!!! i'm your number one fan to my dad too he has all of your albums i just ask him to make him copes of your cds ifi want them well bye luda!!! i love ya as a fan come to pennsylvania for a concert please.

i love this song i cry when i hear it makes me go back to my child hood. i was 9 when i was raped by my mothers b/f and i thank you so much for commin out with a song that people can relate to. when i turned 11 i ran away and never went back till jsut a few months ago. which im now 19. all i can say is this is a wonderful song thanks so much. and if theres any females out there that wanna run away because of things your goin to. i just wanna say that some way its good btu its better off to go to a family member house and stay its not good when your livin here adn there and dont know where your gonna lay your head the next night.

Posted by: NASHAWN at December 22, 2006 2:48 PM

this video is amazing.
it brought me to tears.
i watched it over & over.
it`s so realistic.
a lot of teens don`t understand that this is how other teens live day to day, with all these struggles & problems of their past leading to their present. i think ludacris did an outstanding job.

Posted by: Sarah at December 22, 2006 5:22 PM

luda all i gotta say is this song can really bring tears to ur eyes as u think about it cauze people in the world are actually going through this kind of stuff! I LUV U! KEEP DOING YA THING LUDA!

Posted by: Courtney at December 28, 2006 1:09 PM

I saw the second verse where the girl get's shot and that just blew me away. I was crying so hard. Ludacris and Mary, keep up the good work I love it. You didn't make this about ladies, you made it about girls who are going through rough times. Mary.J.Blige, the ending you owned it. Hope too see more videos like this one!!!

Posted by: JJ at January 6, 2007 2:33 AM

this is just an amazeing song.its nice to see that luda has a different side to him and he is not afraid to show it.usually he raps about girls shakeing their butts in front of camrea.Its nice to see the good side of him cause all of his fans have never seen it.i think luda wrote this song because of what he seen and what he heard.when you listen to this song the first thing you think about it is its sad but some people never stop and relize that this happens to some people and thats just horrible.Luda is going to make a big change in our world with this song.I luv u luda
