Miami's Pitbull Signs With TVT

Popular Miami rapper

Pitbull has inked a long term deal with TVT Records, home to such southern acts

as Ying Yang Twins and Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz.

"The timing was just right with TVT. The label has its finger on the pulse of

the South movement and I wanted to be a part of that," Pitbull said.

The rapper is already working on his album, which is slated for a September 2004

release date. He recently recorded "That's Nasty" with Lil Jon and Lil Scrappy.

The song will appear on TVT's Crunk & Disorderly compilation, which also

features David Banner, T.I., Bone Crusher, Ying Yang Twins and others.

"Pitbull is one of those rare artist whose character and presence is felt not

only on a record but throughout an entire community," TVT Records President, Steve

Gottlieb said.

The 22-year-old rapper recorded "Oye" for the "2 Fast 2 Furious" soundtrack. The

Crunk & Disorderly compilation will be in-stores December 9, 2003.
