Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull met American rapper and Fast and Furious star Ludacris (Christopher Bridges) during a charity event in New York.

They shook hands.

We assume they're discussing Turnbull's favourite Ludacris tune, which of course would be his colab with Pharrell "Money Maker".

Malcolm Turnbull has previously named his favourite songs as a mix of reggae, rock and country.

In 2009 he listed his top tunes as - Chan Chan by Buena Vista Social Club, Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool, Me and Bobbie McGee by Janis Joplin, Heart of Glass by Blondie and Roxanne by The Police.

Australian cardboard billionaire Anthony Pratt introduced the pair at a fundraiser for African women in leadership thrown by Ludacris' wife's charity Unspoken Angels.

Immigration minister Peter Dutton was also at the event, but tragically left early.

That is the story of Australia's prime minister meeting Ludacris.
