Miami has given us many stellar artists but when it’s time to party Pitbull and Flo Rida are part of what I call the Miami hit machine. Both artists had a choppy start but it didn’t stop them from banging out a boatload of hits.

Flo Rida was raised by a single mother in a rough neighborhood. He says ““Growing up in the projects, you never knew when you’d have to lay down on the ground because they’re shooting or the police swat team is on the roof”. Flo credits music for keeping him on the strait path. A path that turned out to be paved with gold and platinum. His blockbuster singles like Low (feat. T-Pain), Right Round, Club Can’t Handle Me, Good Feeling and Wild Ones (feat. Sia) are dance floor magnets.

Pitbull’s youth was no easy ride either. His mother struggled to make ends meet. He was shuttled from one rundown home to another, even living with a foster family for a time. At one point his mother kicked Pit out for dealing drugs. Today Pit aint called Mr. World Wide for nothin’. Not with anthem hits like Timber (feat. Ke$ha), International Love (feat. Chris Brown),  Fireball (feat. John Ryan) and Feel This Moment (feat. Christina Aguilera) to name a few.

Both artists never stopped working and pumping their positive attitude to become who they are today. This weekend I’m gonna be workin’ hard mixin’ and remixin’ Pitbull’s latest jam featuring Ne-Yo - Time Of Our Lives and Flo Rida’s banger GDFR (feat. Sage The Gemini).

I'll be layin’ the beat for an all out party throw down of all your favorite hits!  Get ready to turn up the volume when I hit the ones and twos In The Mix with HK this Saturday at 10pm and Sunday at noon right here on Mix 94.9!

Remember…if it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix with HK.
