    Pitbull is a legend and he is the best rapper of this decade, hits after hits! and he doesn’t sell because of name like Eminem does. Pitbull sells good music because it grows on people naturally, he is a super talented artist and I can’t wait to see him on the Amas. I know he will do great! Plus for your info, Pitbull was born in Miami but he is proud of his Cuban roots. Stop hating on him please.
