Pitbull’s Rise From Unknown Rapper to Miami Mogul


Even if you don’t think you’re a Pitbull fan chances are that you’ve either danced to one of his songs or seen him in a Bud Light, Kodak or Dr. Pepper commercial.

He’s sold more than 5 million albums worldwide and generated over 5 billion YouTube views. To be even more precise, he’s had nine top 10 singles including 2011’s #1 hit “Give Me Everything” featuring Ne-Yo and 2014’s #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Timber.”

All this might seem unlikely for a kid born to first generation Cuban immigrants. It seemed to have happened quickly, when Armando Pérez aka Pitbull aka Mr. Worldwide, made a sprint toward stardom just ten short years ago in 2004, when he was just 23 years old, back when crunk became the party-rap rage on Miami urban radio.

Today, Pittbull has a a net worth estimated between $10-20 million and has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music: Usher, Chris Brown, T-Pain, Lil’ John, Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, and Pharrell Williams (and more).
