Discovering new talent is often a daunting task; however, when the formula is complete, all parts, synergetic, the sky is the limit. With a noted machine behind him, coupled with his distinct originality, Flo Rida has captured the attention of many while simultaneously making significant impact early in the game. This reserved persona is a refreshing addition to the Poe Boy Entertainment family. Explosive on his tracks and indomitably riding his flow, FloRida is entrenched in the “Movement,” which, yet again, dons Miami as a hub for endless talent; FloRida is primed to burst on to the scene with his versatile lyricism in tow. FloRida’s exceptional creativity-a fresh and energetic flow, escorted by a melodic delivery- ensures there is never a dull moment. With a tone analogous to that of Nelly and on par with the vivacity of Outkast , FloRida’s uniqueness will undoubtedly set him apart, defying any standard expectations. Whether singing his hooks or writing his own lyrics, this multi-talented artist embraces tenacity like no other. Recently returning from a three-year stint in Los Angeles, California, the 24-year old Carol City, Florida native and former basketball player is on a mission. He has always had a penchant for writing and vibing to beats and being inspired by his family’s musical influence. As a 15-year old he began working with his brother-in law who, at the time was involved with Miami’s pioneer of bass music, Luke Skywalker- founder of 2 Live Crew. His focus and persistence are the direct result of realizing his passion and a discernible revelation, “When my sister passed away, I woke up and realized what I had to. As the only boy of seven other siblings [sisters] and growing up without my father, I realized that I needed to make the most of my time here on earth. I want to utilize of all of my God-given talents and give back in a way that others can benefit. My mother is so strong and I admire her for her strength and showing me that by sacrifice and being level-headed anything is possible.” In 2001, he hit the road, performing at shows with Fresh Kid Ice of 2 Live Crew. While amassing significant exposure nationwide, he garnered the attention of DeVante Swing formerly of famed R&B group “Jodeci” as well as “The Blind Boys of Alabama.” As a result of this budding relationship, FloRida departed to Los Angeles, California to work on his music with them also along side the now reality TV star and Public Enemy member, Flavor Flav and producer Rich Harrison. “I had to leave school [UNLV and then Barry University] my music took precedence, I had to do it full time if it was going to pop off. I took a trip to LA to promote myself. I was literally on the streets– at times, promoting myself by myself— I always had the drive to push own music… People tend you help you more when they see that you promote yourself, they know your serious then.” FloRida captivates his audience with tales from the hood some of which he has seen and experienced. His experiences are channeled through a medium, which everyone from all backgrounds can relate to. Additionally, FloRida has been a member of a home-grown group, “The Groundhogs” since the 9th grade. FloRida, one of the group’s four members, is intent upon paving the way and opening doors for his comrades. The name The Groundhogs FloRida says is significant because “without being grounded, you have nothing to stand on and nothing lasts long if you don’t start from the ground up.” His versatility overflows into all aspects of his life. As a former basketball player and all around athlete, who has dabbled in a bit of acting, he is intentional in his quest to emerge as leader and an inspiration to those from his neighborhood or those who might benefit and learn from his example. He has taken heed of what could happen by circumstance and in this case he is taking advantage of what destiny already intends. Signing to Miami’s hottest record label, Poe Boy Entertainment in early 2006, was a no brainer for FloRida.
