Ludacris stopped by 'MLB Central' to talk 'Fear Factor' reboot and name-dropping Bob Costas

Think back to 2003 for a second. Do you remember Ludacris' song, "Hip Hop Quotables"? If not, you're going to have to Google it on your own, because the lyrics are a little NSFW, but there is one particular phrase that stands out in our memory:
For a hefty fee, I'm on your record like Bob Costas
Luda, of course, was referencing Costas' show, "On the Record," and in 2013, Costas himself rapped the verse on MLB Network. On Tuesday, Ludacris checked in with "MLB Central" to evaluate his performance. He also talked about how being a Braves fan is an emotional roller coaster and got everyone pumped for his reboot of "Fear Factor."
Will there be baseball-related feats on the show? Will Jon Lester have to confront his terror of throwing to first base or face elimination? The only way to find out is to watch "Fear Factor" on MTV, Tuesday at 10 pm ET.
