Inf-Ho-Graphic: A Precisely Plotted Map of Area Codes In Which Ludacris Has "Hoes"

Cross-country "Ludacris’ Hoes" road trip, anyone?

About 12 years ago, a young Southern rapper named Ludacris gussied up the Rush Hour 2 soundtrack with an ode to his far-flung harem of waiting mistresses. "Area Codes" is less a song than a melodic list of locations throughout the continental United States in which Luda has established benefits with a bevy of anonymous female friends. And, because the Internet will never stop being the Internet, some dedicated hero has created a visual representation of all those area codes.

Self-proclaimed "data geek" Stefanie Gray has carefully plotted out a map showing every single place in which the self-described "Abominable Ho-man" once kept his wards. Each spot mentioned in the song is marked with its corresponding area code on the map (although unfortunately Hawaii’s 808 is left off.) Are Ludacris’ hoes still stashed in these locations, perhaps awaiting rescue? There’s only one way to find out.

Watch Ludacris’ "Area Codes" video below.

    Perhaps we just needed something light hearted to smile about today? Being a news-nazi does not make you interesting or desirable. It just makes you annoying.

    Enjoy the map!! I did!

    AND - that comment was intended for the comment from Kate Hutchinson, not you Joe!

    sorry to be all hipster and shit, but this map has been out for YEARS

    Terrific. Can we now get a map that shows where all the promiscuous men are?

    This isn't news, this isn't new, and it doesn't show anything innovative. I'm baffled as to why this is on the Fast Company site.
