Ludacris gave football fans at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium a moment to remember on Tuesday as the Atlanta Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, the Falcons hosted a celebratory event which included performances from a host of the city's most revered-ever rappers, including Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri, and T.I.

As part of the show, Luda, who grew up in Atlanta, rappelled from the roof while performing his 2001 smash hit "Move Bitch."

"I Got Some Georgia Dome Today," Luda wrote on Instagram while sharing footage of his daring stunt, referencing the Falcons' former home.

A number of Luda's fellow rappers were impressed by his fearless feat.

"WOW AMAZING," commented Tyler, the Creator on Luda's Instagram post.

"EXTREME," wrote Redman, while Russ commented: "Next level."

The Falcons first announced their hip-hop at 50 celebration last week.

"We are extremely excited to celebrate this milestone and invite fans and the entire Atlanta community to join us," said Tameka Rish, senior vice president of fan and associate experience at AMB Sports and Entertainment, in a statement shared on the Mercedes-Benz Stadium's website.

"The hip-hop community and the Atlanta Falcons have forged a close relationship since the early nineties, influenced by the drafting of Deion Sanders," Rish said.

“This is a relationship that has not only endured but flourished, reflecting Atlanta's continued significance in the hip-hop world," she concluded.

The celebration proved to be a good omen for the Falcons, who ran out as 24-15 winners over the Saints on the day.
