Pitbull, the American rapperAfter several months, I finally found the real reason why I have so many visitors coming to my blog site, particular on to this Pitbull page. Visitors coming in have generated quite a substantial amount of traffic and honestly, I thought it was just cool.

Even today, Pitbull is listed as the top search key word on my site, exceeding the next keyword as much as 5 times. Okay, now the truth is; I realised there are tonnes of traffic searching for the American rapper, Armando Christian Pérez, commonly known as Pitbull as his stage name.

I did not know him well until I started listening to some of the recent music hits, such as “Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)” on his collaboration with T-Pain, as well as subsequent collaboration with Jennifer Lopez on her single “On the Floor“.

The bottom line, I am aware of his existence now; and probably, thanks to him for the traffic to my site.

Pitbull was born to Cuban immigrant parents who made him recite the works of poet José Martí. As he was blue-eyed and Cuban American, he encountered problems early in his career as a rapper. He was also influenced by the Miami bass genre of hip hop music and has cited Celia Cruz and Willy Chirino as sources of inspiration for his music. Perez’s parents separated when he was young and he was raised by his mother. He later spent time with a foster family in Roswell, Georgia. At age 16, his mother kicked him out of their house after he became a drug dealer. He then graduated from Miami Coral Park High School and focused his career in rapping.

Pitbull explained the reason behind choosing his stage name, saying about the dog “they bite to lock. The dog is too stupid to lose (and they’re outlawed in Dade County). They’re basically everything that I am. It’s been a constant fight.”
