Pitbull got involved in the game when he started appearing on Miami mixtapes. Soon Luther Campbell called on the rapper to appear on his “Lollipop” single. It brought Pitbull to the attention of the king of crunk, Lil Jon. A Pitbull freestyle landed on Lil Jon’s platinum-selling Kings of Crunk album in 2002, and the rapper’s “Oye” track appeared on the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack in 2003.
Pitbull unleashed his debut full-length, M.I.A.M.I., in 2004 with the Lil Jon-produced single “Culo” leading the way. Soon Pitbull was making guest appearances on tracks by everyone from the Ying Yang Twins to Elephant Man. In 2006, the single “Bojangles” prepared fans for his next album, El Mariel. As the album landed, it was announced that his next effort would be titled The Boatlift. When the end product arrived in 2007, it was an album mostly in English, introduced by the single “Go Girl.”
Two years later, he released Rebelution, an album filled with slick club cuts, including the hits “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” and “Hotel Room Service.” Featuring the hit single “Bon Bon,” his all-Spanish-language album Armando followed in 2010. In 2011, Planet Pit arrived, featuring the singles “Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor)” and “Give Me Everything.” Both the singles collection Original Hits and I Am Armando arrived in 2012 along with his seventh studio effort, Global Warming. Pitbull peforms all over the world.
