Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is an American rapper of Cuban origin, singer-songwriter and record producer. His first recorded performance was on the Lil Jon album Kings of Crunk in 2002, after which he released his debut album in 2004 titled M.I.A.M.I. (short for Money Is A Major Issue). Since then, the guy really took off like a rocket! The 2009 album Rebelution featured the hit singles I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) and Krazy and suddenly, literally in no time, sales exceeded 8 million worldwide! In the meantime, Pitbull and rapper Sean 'Diddy' Combs co-founded Bad Boy Latino, a subsidiary of Combs' Bad Boy Records label. It primarily focuses on Latin Rap, Latin Soul and Tropical music, and has offices in Miami and New York. While currently being one of the most successful hip hop/dance music stars in the US and the world over himself, Pitbull has become an active talent scout for new performers, leading the A&R division of the label.
