Spring Break Stampede
RodeoHouston® appearances: 2013
Drawing influences from hip-hop artists Nas and Notorious B.I.G., Pitbull tried his hand at rapping at a young age. In 2002, he was featured on Lil John and the East Side Boyz’ “Kings of Crunk” album, which helped raise his profile in the music world significantly. He released his debut album “M.I.A.M.I.” in 2004, peaking at No. 11 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. Following this early success, Pitbull became a wanted collaborator for other hip-hop artists, such as Ying Yang Twins and Wyclef Jean.
Since his musical journey began, Pitbull has released seven studio albums and more than 70 singles (both his own and as a collaborator). His Miami-born roots are evident in his music, which contains a hint of Latin flavor.
Singles: “Culo,” “Everybody Get Up,” “Bojangles,” “Go Girl,” “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho),” “Tu Cuerpo,” “Hey, Baby (Drop It to the Floor),” “Give Me Everything,” “International Love,” “Get it Started”
