Pitbull stands out with classy style
Rapper Pitbull has been around for some time, though most recently his cool and sexy Miami style has pushed him to the top in terms of fashion. GQ Magazine reports that the former MC has come a long way since his simpler life as a struggling artist in Miami.
Now, the rapper is taking what he learned on the streets and infusing his street education into his music and businesses. He told the magazine he is still all about making Miami music with latin influences and fun club beats, but he's also learned to hone in on how to make and keep money.
"I'm a businessman. This industry is 90 percent business, 10 percent talent," he told the publication. "It's the people who think they're talented, that their [expletive] don't stink, who get left behind."
Even though he tries to remain grounded, Pit admits he is beginning to get accustomed to the finer things in life, including fresh suits, polished shoes and the best in hip hop clothing.
The Daily Mail reports Pitbull proves rappers don't have to always be in baggy jeans and hoodies while performing when he showed up to the 2011 American Music Awards in a fitted gray suit and flashy shades.
