Pitbull, the rapper sensation whose flow is one of the most recognizable on the radio today, is a force to be reckoned with. Born Armando Christian Perez on January 15, 1981 in Miami, Florida, Pitbull faced adversity in the rap genre because of his appearance. Cuban, fair-skinned, and with blue eyes, he had a difficult time breaking into the industry. But he was persistent and now is one of the highest grossing artists in his genre. His recognizable voice over hip hop and dance beats is his calling card. It has made him a popular featured artist on singles by performers like Jennifer Lopez and Usher, and has made him an accomplished performer in his own right.
