-->Pitbull's [[IncomingHam introduction]] in every song he appears in.

Pitbull, aka Armando Christian Peréz (born January 15, 1981), is an American rapper, songwriter, world traveler, and producer from UsefulNotes/{{Miami}}. He is of [[UsefulNotes/{{Cuba}} Cuban]] descent, and his family arrived in the United States after the Mariel boatlift. He began gaining popularity outside the local and underground scene during the latter half of the 2000's.

As usual, you can find the basics about his career at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitbull_(entertainer) The Other Wiki]].

!!! Tropes Associated with Pitbull:
* BoastfulRap: Good luck finding a Pitbull song in which Pitbull ''doesn't'' rap about how much money he has/how awesome he is and doesn't give a crap about the haters.
** Except "We Are One (Ole Ola)", the 2014 World Cup theme song, which you may or may not count considering what it was made for.
* CatchPhrase: '''WHOOOOOOOWEEE!'''. You hear this right before he starts pretty much every verse he sings.
** Also, "Dale"! ("Let's go" in Spanish). He ends many of his verses with this phrase.
** He calls himself ''Mr. Worldwide'' multiple times in most of his songs.
* CoveredInGunge: At the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards 2013. Dumped on him by ChristinaAguilera.
* DreamTeam: Several examples; with Music/ChristinaAguilera, Music/EnriqueIglesias, JenniferLopez, {{Usher}}, Music/ChrisBrown, Marc Anthony ([[NamesTheSame not that one!]]), Shakira, and {{Kesha}}.
* DrinkingGame: Take a sip every time Pitbull does any of these in one of his songs:
** Calls himself "Mr. Worldwide".
** Or "Mr. 305", or gives mention to Miami.
** Yodels "WHOOOOOOOWEE!" before a verse or during the song in general.
** Says "dalé".
** Gives a shout out to the other guest act(s) in his song.
** Talks about his money.
*** Finish your drink if he says "Now pay me".
** If the song is about having sex with women.
** Mentions not caring about the haters.
** Take two sips if he's the guest act of the song.
** Take two sips if he mentions wanting to be cremated and thrown into the ocean after he dies.
** Take a sip if he mentions some random place
* FunWithAcronyms: In a way. His debut album, ''M.I.A.M.I.'' stands for "Money is a Major Issue."
* InformedFlaw: Pitbull was born with a type of localized paralysis in the nerves in his left cheek, making it very difficult to stretch the skin when he talks. Despite this, he's actually overcome this and can speak normally.
* IntercourseWithYou: Quite a few of his songs.
* LargeHam: Can get there quite heavily in his songs, most notably this from [[MenInBlack "Back in Time"]]
--->'''Pitbull:''' "Don't you know I don't give a NUMBAH TWOOOOOOO?!"
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Pitbull makes it clear that he values making money above most things. This is most jarring in his guest verse in Music/HavanaBrown's "We Run the Night" where he ends it with ''"Now fuck you, pay me."'' Depending on what station you hear the song on, that line may be edited out. The same line is said in his collaboration with ''Akon'', "Shut It Down".
* RunningGag: There are jokes about how he only make "feat songs".
--> I don't sing in the shower anymore, fearing that Pitbull want to make a song.
* StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks: "Culo"
* AWildRapperAppears: The case in a lot of his songs. Especially jarring example in {{Usher}}'s "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love".
* WolverinePublicity: AND HOW! Most of his exposure on the radio is from being a guest rapper for other artists more than his own songs.
