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). His breakout hit was the Lil Jon collabo "Culo" produced by Lil Jon & The Diaz Brothers. In addition, Pitbull has also released several mixtapes, the most recent being Unleashed Volume 6, which are mostly composed of freestyles and remixes of popular rap music.
When the Southern-flavored party rap called crunk took over urban radio in 2004, Miami rapper Pitbull decided it was time to seek stardom. The way Pitbull sees it, "crunk ain't nothin' but bass music slowed down." Miami bass music that is, the kind Pitbull grew up on. His parents were first-generation Cuban immigrants who didn't let their son forget about his culture. They required him to memorize the works of Cuban poet José Martí, and Pitbull understood the power of words right away. Southern acts like Poison Clan and Luther Campbell were early influences, but as he grew the young rapper got turned on to the G-funk sound of the West Coast and the New York City point of view Nas brought to the game.

Bolstered By the Hit Singles “Culo”, “Toma” and “Dammit Man”, Pitbull’s Album M.I.A.M.I. (TVT Records) Has Spent More Than 27 Weeks on the Billboard Top Independent Albums Chart. On His New Single “Toma”, Pitbull Is Joined by Lil Jon For Hard-Hitting Bilingual Collaboration That Is Lighting Up The Dancefloors; Recently-Completed Video Will Begin Airing Later This Month; Song Is Also Picked Up For Use on “CSI: Miami”
After spending more than 27 weeks on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums Chart, best-selling Cuban-American rapper Pitbull has now reached gold status for more than 500,000 copies sold of his debut album “M.I.A.M.I.: Money Is A Major Issue” in the United States.
With his first two singles “Culo” and “Dammit Man” having already landed heavy mainstream radio and MTV play, Pitbull is now promoting his third radio single, “Toma”, which features Lil Jon as guest vocalist. The collaboration marks a return to the airwaves for the pair, who scored big this past summer with the breakthrough hit “Culo”. The new single “Toma” was already prominently featured in a recent episode of the NBC show “Las Vegas”. A recently-completed video for “Toma” will be serviced to all major music networks shortly.
The Miami-based rapper also continues to make noise on the charts with his inclusion on the track “What U Gonna Do” on the new Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz album “Crunk Juice” (which recently debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart) as well as his collaboration with Daddy Yankee and Noreaga on the popular remix of Daddy Yankee’s hit ‘Gasolina’, which is also included on the limited edition version of “Crunk Juice”. Pitbull also has just completed a photo shoot alongside P. Diddy, Lil Wayne, TI, and Lloyd for an upcoming Sean John’s Spring 2005 print campaign.
In further collaboration news, Pitbull guests on acclaimed Cuban rappers Orishas’ forthcoming album “Kilo” (due out March 29th). Pitbull also recently recorded a Spanish version of his hit song “Dammit Man” with Latin rappers Voltio and Chingo Bling, with the tune re-christened as “Dale Mang.” Other recent Pitbull collaborations include performances on Baby Bash’s new album “Trees” (Universal) and Adassa's album entitled "Kumasutra" (Universal Music Latino – March 22nd).
Unlike many other Latino rappers, Pitbull has managed to achieve success in the mainstream hip-hop world with bilingual lyrics and potent beats laced with reggaeton. He is equally comfortable sharing the stage at the VIBE Awards with Lil Jon as he is collaborating with Paulina Rubio in an attention-grabbing performance at the recent MTV Latin America Awards. Evidencing Pitbull’s growing acceptance among mainstream hip-hop fans, his clip for “Culo” was recently nominated for MTV's “Best Booty Shakin’ Video of 2004.”
Pitbull released his debut album “M.I.A.M.I.: Money Is A Major Issue”, on New York-based independent label TVT Records this past August. The album, which hit #14 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, was produced by The Diaz Brothers and by super producer/artist Lil Jon. It features heavyweight guests such as Lil Jon, Trick Daddy, Fat Joe, and others. The 24 year-old Cuban-American rapper’s infectious sound combines hip-hop, crunk, reggae, reggeton, and dancehall, with English and Spanish lyrics. In what seems like a short while, Pitbull has quickly become one of the most buzzworthy hip-hop acts in the country and an MTV favorite.
Pitbull can also be found playing himself in the upcoming videogame “Scarface,” featuring Tony Montana. His song “Culo” also appears in the videogame ‘Midnight Club 3 Dub.’ Pitbull’s album “M.I.A.M.I.” is now also starting to make its mark outside the U.S., with the disc recently released in the UK, Spain, France, Germany, and Australia. Pitbull has just completed a highly-successful European t
