Two very different worlds collided in Georgia Thursday as a member of rap royalty met a member of a powerful American political family.
Not-yet-2016-presidential-candidate Jeb Bush was at the Georgia State House to talk about how his policies would be helpful to children.
Just prior to Bush speaking, rapper Chris Bridges (aka "Ludacris") was honored by the assembly for his charitable work. For more than a decade, the Ludacris Foundation has been supporting the children of the state with over $1.5 million in funding and thousands of hours of charitable work.
There was an eventual meeting and photo opportunity in the hall.
Jeb tweeted about it.
Never thought @Ludacris would be my opening act! His foundation does great work pic.twitter.com/RsF00SQgOw

Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Greg Bluestein covered the events of the day and caught a bit of a personal burn delivered by Ludacris and posted it on his Twitter account.
As he is leaving statehouse, Ludacris is asked which Bush is his favorite. His response: "The one outside." #gapol pic.twitter.com/7tCh12qiOc

The rapper's clever insult should not have surprised anyone. In 2008, Ludacris released "Politics," a song that was critical of politicians on both sides of the aisle that called Jeb's brother, then-president George W. Bush, "the worst of all 43 presidents" and "mentally challenged."
