Biography

A Cuban-American rapper who conquered the world, Pitbull won legions of fans with his unique blend of hip-hop/rap, Latin music styles and bilingual lyrics. Getting his start with mixtapes and a Lil Jon partnership, Pitbull went on to record a string of successful albums, including 2004's M.I.A.M.I. (Money is a Major Issue), 2006's El Mariel, and his mainstream breakthrough, 2009's Rebelution. The latter spawned the No. 2 "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)," and he soon became radio's favorite featured artist, guesting on Usher's "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love," Enrique Iglesias's "I Like It," and Jennifer Lopez's "On the Floor." His 2011 album, Planet Pit, spun off his first No. 1, "Give Me Everything," featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer, as well as the hit "International Love" featuring Chris Brown. Serving as the head of A&R for Sean Combs's Bad Boy Latino label, Pitbull built on his international music success to also become a global mogul with lucrative endorsements. A living embodiment of the modern American dream, Pitbull proudly carried his culture with him wherever he went, ensuring that his music never lost sight of where he was from.

Bonus Trivia

.

In August 2011, Lindsay Lohan sued Pitbull along with his collaborators Ne-Yo and Afrojack for the song "Give Me Everything," which includes the line "I got locked up like Lindsay Lohan." The actress claimed the lyrics use her name without her consent and are defamatory. Pitbull responded by openly inviting Lohan on his Web site to attend the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, where he performed the song live. On Feb. 21, 2013, a judge dismissed the case in favor of Pitbull and explained the song was protected by the First Amendment.
