Pitbull

Armando Christian Pérez born 1981, in Miami, Florida better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Cuban-American rapper. Pitbull grew up in Miami's Little Havana, a section of Miami known for its large population of cubans.

Before releasing his debut album titled M.I.A.M.I (Money is A Major Issue) in August 2004, Pitbull was featured on Lil Jon's Kings Of Crunk (2002) album and the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack (2003). In addition, Pitbull has also released several mixtapes, the most recent being Unleashed Volume 5, which are mostly composed of freestyles and remixes of popular rap music. Both thematically and musically, Pitbull can be seen as a modern-day equivalent of earlier Miami rappers such as the 2 Live Crew and Afro-Rican.

It was in fact former 2 Live Crew leader Luther Campbell who gave the up and coming rapper his first chance to shine. Apart from Crunk, his album shows clear influences from both Miami bass and freestyle. In addition to his musical work, Pitbull has also been featured in The Source expressing his stance on Fidel Castro, and contributed to an essay published in the New York Post that criticized Che Guevara's iconization in clothing and other areas. In video games, Pitbull's hit single "Dammit Man" is featured in Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition, and he also plays himself in the upcoming video game based on the 1980's Scarface. His song "Toma" is featured in WWE Day of Reckoning 2.
