Much of mainstream hip hop is full of messages that are not always empowering to the audience. Pitbull does not fit into any one box as an artist.
Something cool about him is that he does not mind being positive and sharing that positivity with others. A lot of his quotes and material encourage us to look at our own mindset and consider the energy we are putting out.
More than conventional wisdom, the rapper has some constructive advice for his listeners and fans. He reminds us of the importance of living now in the present, noting that “Life is to live it, not to let it live you.” Pitbull would be the first one to remind you of the important virtues in life, “Patience, passion and perseverance equal success.”
