After appearing on one of Lil Jon’s albums, Pitbull’s found an introduction to a wider audience when his song “Oye” was placed in the hit movie 2 Fast 2 Furious. The rapper’s career exploded from there. He released several hit albums between 2004 and 2016, while also extended his career into television, movies and even video games. Since 2010, much of the rapper’s career has also involved various business deals and product endorsements. This includes big-name companies Kodak and Walmart. The rapper has also opened up his own business ventures, including an equity stake in a Miami-based restaurant, and his Sirius-XM radio station called Pitbull’s Globalization Radio.
