      Pitbull just released his debut album, M.I.A.M.I., in 2004 but it feels like he’s been in the game for much longer than two years. Still thriving off the hit singles “Culo” and “Toma”, Pitbull is set to drop his latest album on Halloween. Leading off with a new single called “Bojangles”; Pit’s new album El Mariel feature guest appearances from Pharrell Williams, Wyclef Jean, Lil Jon, Ying Yang Twins, Fat Joe, Ken Y, Rick Ross, Trick Daddy and DJ Khaled.

      "They have this misconception," Pitbull said about the hip-hop industry trying to classify him. "They’ll say, ‘He’s just this Latin rapper, he’s a reggaeton act, he’s crunk.’ They don’t know what to say about me. [After El Mariel] a lot of folks are gonna start saying, ‘You gotta watch out for that boy Pit.’"

Production duties are being handled by Pharrell, Wyclef, Lil Jon, and Mr. Collipark.    

      The album title, El Mariel, is named after the infamous Cuban boatlift that relocated almost 125,000 cubanos to Florida in 1980.

You can also listen for Pitbull in the new video game, Scarface: The World is Yours as he voices one of Tony Montana’s henchmen.
