Here is a wonderful article on Pitbull written by Mario Tarradell (music critic) of the Dallas News that featured a 24 year old Pitbull. Check out some excerpts below: A Reflection from the Past At 24, he’s fresh-faced, lacking the sparkling jewelry that characterizes the hip-hop style. His debut album, M.I.A.M.I, which stands for Money Is a Major Issue, sounds straightforward even as he embraces the Southern rap, crunk, reggaeton and Latin hip-hop movements. He’s no-nonsense in a genre he calls “a lie.” “I feel hip-hop is a facade,” he says. “A lot of these rappers…no, cause they got guns…no, […]

You know, especially for someone who is able to … as they’re feeding you the lines, I would just tell them, ‘Look, how do […]

Cab drivers can tell you the son of Cuban immigrants’ entire history growing up in a single-parent home in Miami. “Pitbull is a man of the streets,” one American-Cuban cab driver told us. “Nobody gave him nothing. He did it on his own.” A few weeks later at a reception overlooking the Miami skyline at the Franchise Expo South, an Argentine franchise litigator with Greenberg Traurig sang the performer’s praises as well. Pitbull’s appeal, he said, is his ability to use Spanglish so artfully. The hip-hop artist/entrepreneur resonates with the U.S. Latino […]
