What range would you put T-Pain at?

Click Here (T-Pain looks ½ inches taller than 5ft 5 Lil Wayne)

Click Here (T-Pain looks 2 ½ inches taller than 5ft 4 ¾ Kehlani)

Click Here (T-Pain looks around the same height as 5ft 8 Kanye West)

(I'd go with a 170-172cm range)
Editor Rob
That's a kind of range I could believe.

He doesn't look 4.5 inches taller than 5ft 3 1/2 bobby valentino to me. More like 5ft 7 tops for luda

Hey rob here with 6ft 50 cent would you say Ludacris is 5ft9 Click Here
Editor Rob
Generally ludcaris at 5ft 8 seems believable, but sometimes he might manage to look a bit taller.

Taller than Wahlberg in photo from incline advantage. Luda and Marky Mark both stand 5' 7" at best in shoes.

I am thinking 5'7.5 at most, 5'8.5 with shoes

He's 5' 6.5" - and I KNOW. It's funny how so many people that don't know try to prove his height one way or another. Let him claim he's 5.8, who cares?

he certainly can look that range, there is probably a bit of tilt in the youtuber guy's favour.

i think maxpayne in the games hes a average height guy hes 5'7 or somthing doesnt look more then that.. or he could be 5''6 1/2 and is 140 ibs :)
Guitargeorge said on 2/Oct/14
Errr Rob you shouldn't put a pic of 5ft8 Ludacris standing next to Wahlberg looking half to 3/4 inches taller. It's not good if you have 5ft7.25 Wahlberg listed at 5ft8.25 on the site. Just for the sake of continuity.
CJ said on 25/Sep/14
Saw him in the Atlanta airport. I'm 5'10 and my wife is 5'8. He was clearly shorter than both of us.
Jasmine said on 29/Dec/13
Has anyone seen Luda in person- I have. I live in ATL and use to see him all the time. I'm 5'6. 5 and Luda's da same height as me with me wearing sandals. I remember seeing him and Chingy together thinking how much taller I thought chingy was and then how short Luda must be. We were all standing on flat surface in bright lights. My estimation is that luda is no more than 5'6 and a half, maybe 5'63/4. I must say he is the nicest man on the earth and I love his personality. I only came to this site to see how tall kevin hart was, but I must add that I even love kevin hart too.
MD said on 25/Nov/13
Discounting the Larenz Tate photos I posted, because maybe something's going on there, 5'7", maybe 5'7.5" at the very most. This is the same as Usher and NeYo. All of them are clearly under 5'8", yet each of them is listed as being exactly 5'8". lol Of the three, NeYo is the the shortest and Ludacris the tallest, but none of them are 5'8", and the difference between the three can't really be more than half-an-inch.
Editor Rob
ludacris looks more 5ft 8 most of the time, yeah neyo can look a weak 5ft 8 guy a fair bit.
Soupeman said on 23/Nov/13
Luda is 165cm max! even Tommy Lee mocked him with the polio joke in that video.

Legit 5'8.
thedude said on 19/Oct/13
it is quite clear that both him and piven are around the 170 range at most.. mayb if piven wears lifs ludas a bit over 170.
MD said on 18/Oct/13

I'm confused, now. Here he is with Larenz Tate (on right), who you have listed at 5'6.5":

Click Here

Even given that they are standing exactly next to each other, they are pretty clearly nearly the same height.


Click Here

It sounds crazy, but I think you may have to take a whole half-inch off this listing and maybe even raise Larenz Tate a half-inch.
Sean said on 16/Oct/13
As of 2013, I met Justin Bieber. He was 5'8 max. If Ludacris is 5'8 why he appears shorter than Justin Bieber.
MA said on 3/Sep/13
Luda looks like a 5'6 guy.
Missy said on 6/Aug/13
I was next to this guy in the hotel bar whilst he was in London for a premiere and I'm 5'5 with 1 inch heel shoes on. He was the same height as me - not an inch taller. This guy is short.
superman said on 20/Jun/13
yeah for sure ludacris is 5'8 perfect posting, thats what made me think nelly is only 5'7 if u look at any pictures of them together luda always looks strong 5'8, and nelly looks strong 5'7
Juicey said on 7/May/13
5'8 easy don't see this guy as an insecure type that would lie bout his height

Met him in person twice. I'm about 5'4 and typically wear 2.5 inch heels as I did on those 2 different days. Yes, he is 5'7/ 5'8-ish... in boots.

Ace said on 19/Feb/11
Interestingly enough, in an episode of SVU, a police height chart shows him at roughly 5`10.5, and next to Ice T, he didn't look a whole lot shorter, maybe 2 inches at most. Unless he was wearing height boosting shoes, he never seemed shorter than 5`9.
Somborac said on 16/Feb/11
I was in Miami while they were shooting 2 Fast 2 Furious & met Luda on the set. I'm 6ft with my shoes on & he was easily 4 inches shorter. 5'8" is about right.
solared said on 5/Feb/11
he is 5'5 or 5;6 I know this cause I know a girl who shared some um time with him, and she is 5'7 and said without shoes he is shorter than her, he must elevate alot...

Trey is probably 5'9 or 10ish.
MD said on 2/Feb/11
Here is Trey Songz with 6'1" Chad Johnson, who is even slouching:

Click Here

With 5'9" (more like 5'8") Mario Lopez:

Click Here

He's also noticeably shorter than Fabolous, who while listed at 6'0", on here, I really still think is only in the 5'11" range.

I saw him claim "exactly six feet" in some interview on the internet a few years back, and it's just flat ridiculous. This guy is 5'10", at the most, but with good enough proportions where if you put him in some thick boots, could reach 6'0".
Ajax said on 1/Feb/11
Yeah, how tall is Trey Songz? I see a 6'1" listing but no way is he anything close to that. probably around the 5'10" range.
Ant said on 15/Jan/11
Theres no way hes close to 5'8. I met him once at a waffle house in Atlanta, im only 5'8.5 and i had a couple of inches on him. I'd give him 5'6 at most.

I partied with Ludacris in Vegas on July 4th, 2009 and I am 5'5. He was barely taller than me and he was wearing shoes that give him a lift. So he has to be around 5'6.

glenn says on 15/May/09
hard to say.5-7,5-8.he was around my height.

Yeah, Ludacris is probably not too different than Glenn in height, MAYBE just a tad taller but not for sure. He's a bit taller than Ryan Seacrest, this we know.

That backs up my belief that Mark is 5'7.5" barefoot because the pictures are full body shots and Ludacris doesn't seem to have a footwear or posture advantage.

Ludacris probably is the 5

5'6". he's no taller than 5'7". the truth is, he's a very small man. ludacris is a short 5'6" man.

Ludacris needs a downgrade to like 5'7, notice all the comments of 5-6, 5-7, just like with TI
clearly shorter than Usher here, even if he straightened up

I think he is under 5'8". My boyfriend is about 5'9" and he was shocked by how small Ludacris is. He would not have made such a big deal over an inch.
Antron said on 31/Jan/08
I think he is 5'8" in shoes. So 5'7" barefoot; I usually give my height in shoes too. I'm a tad under 5'7" but a tad over in shoes, so I just say I'm 5'7" most of the time.
Jmob said on 16/Dec/07
Luda's about 5'8 to 5'9 . I've met him Im 6'0 and hes the same exact height of one of my friend end of story he didn't have tall shoes or nothing.Hes 5'8 to 5'9.Trust me :)
KB said on 27/Jul/07
Hmm idk when i shook his hand i was like at least three inches taller than him and im only 5'9". I think 5'7.75 is just a tad tall, 5'6 seems more accurate to me.

This height seems correct to me. I had a friend go to his concert once and he told me, first thing, "Luda's not very big. Maybe even less then 5'8''."

I'd say he's closer to 5'9", having stood next to him. I'm 5'6 1/2" and he had about 2 1/2" on me.

Nu-huu luda's not no 5'8". He was down at the beach in L.A. bout 2 years ago , and i stood next to him both of us barefoot on a flat cement surface and he was like 3 inches shorter than me , the top of his head came up to my eyes. Im only 5'9" without shoes.

Ludacris is definitely 5-8. When Luda went on the "Tonight Show", he stood next to the supposedly 5-11 Jay Leno, and Luda was about 2-3 inches shorter. So I'd say 5-8 on the dot with no shoes.

Ludacris looks pretty average to me. It's just that he's like T.I., he's not that built so he looks small. He looks 5'9", but without shoes on he's like about 5'8" 1/2.
Anonymous said on 30/Aug/05
He looks 5'10 recently but is probably wearing those magic shoes that seem to be so popular in Hollywood.
Ricardo said on 26/Aug/05
He means he's standing 5'8" with shoes on obviously, i've never seen him in person, but my cousin has and told me he was shorter than me when i was about 5'7", but even when i watch him in t.v he doesn't look that tall.
Lex said on 9/Jul/05
5'8? i dont think so in the vid "Yeah" he looks like 2 inchers shorter or more beside Usher who is 5'8. So no way hes 5/8 probably around 5'5 or 5'6.
J. said on 27/Jun/05
Okay, I don't to wear it out, but just for the fans who believe he's average height. If so, how come he came up to Snoop's shoulder on MTV's "TRL" not too long ago??? A 5'8" person wouldn't barely rise above a 6'3"- 6'4" person quite like that.
J. said on 20/Jun/05
You're right, Ricardo, he is in the 5'6"- 5'7" range. My petite little cousin has the pictures with him to prove it.
Ricardo said on 19/Jun/05
All you people stating ludacris height being 5'8" have never seen him before,Here in Trinidad by me ludacris came down a couple of years ago and my cousin went to his concert. My cousin is about 5'8" about the same height as me. But back then i was 5'7". Iasked my cousin how the concert was, he said it was good, but he was surprised how short luda was. I asked him what he meant and he said he stood next to luda and ludas head was reaching a little above his eyes, he said luda was pretty short. Iasked him if he was about my height then. He watched me for a while from hea to toe then said that he was a little bit shorter, then he made som joke about my height. There you have it. My cousin is 5'8" barefoot and sais luda is shorter than me when as 5'7" there is NO WAY he can be 5'8" i'm thinking maybe around 5'6" barefoot, and 5'8" with his shoes on and all those braids, i also think he wears soles in those Air Forces, cuz i used to wear Air Forces and when i was shorter(5'6.5") i used to put a nice 1 inch sole in them and it was never ucomfortable, just used to buy the shoe two sizes bigger. But now since i'm 5'8.5" and almost 5'9" i gave up doing this. I'm 17 now and probably still growing, i doght luda is. Face it he is 5'6" probably even 5'5".
mjd said on 30/May/05
Ludacris and vivica a fox are the exact same height...They stood side by side and they were the same whatever vivica is(i presume 5'7) then luda must be the same...
deth row pimp said on 29/Apr/05
5'8 sounds about right. cuz in the song potion he said hes 5'8. and in # 1 spot he said he xxl and if you shorter than 5'8 u wouldn't need to wear that big of a size. and he wouldn't want to.
T. said on 2/Apr/05
I saw Luda in person and he is not an inch over 5'7 (the most)
Monty said on 25/Mar/05
Usher and Ludacris are the same height so i guess 5'8 is correct.
Ricardo said on 25/Mar/05
My cousin went to see luda when he came down to my country, Trinidad. My cousin came back and told me that luda was much shorter than he thought, my cousin is about 5'8" or 5'9" he said ludas head was reaching a bit over his eyes. My guess: 5'5" or 5'6". Take in mind he always wears shoes, even on the beach...
J. said on 22/Mar/05
Luda's a somewhat hard one to peg. Well, he's a defintely under 5'9". He's small and skinny, that's a fact. But I'm thinking he's shorter than 5'8" as well. My cousin mentioned to me about a year ago that she met Luda a while back while she interned at our local hip hop/R&B radio station. She's 5'3". She claimed that to her suprise he wasn't much taller than her. In fact, she said she was shocked at how short he actually is. I mean, 5'8" isn't that short so I'm thinking he's under that. Plus if you look at him around celebs and in music videos (not always trustworthy, of course) he's a pretty short guy. Also a recent article in XXL magazine had the writer (Amy Linden) describing him as "much shorter than perceived" and reffering to him as "diminutive". 5'8" isn't considered to be that 'diminutive' in the US so ... Luda's 5'7" and a half by my estimate. That seems about his height. If he's even that!

Just found a good pic. I'm not sure about Trina's shoes (she's offically 5'2" without any) but I don't think she's wearing heels by the way she's standing (only a guess; she would be 5'5" with 3" ones on). Luda's not looking 5'8"! [And John Witherspoon, the actor who is also in the pic, is listed as 5'10"],trina,%20j.witherspoon.jpg
Lmeister said on 22/Mar/05
I think that is really close since he is around the same height as Usher (5'8''), but def. shorter than Nelly(5'9''). I'd say he is 5'7''- 5'8''.
