Rapper Pitbull Explains How Music Saved His Life and How Money Can Buy Happiness


(AllHipHop News) Rapper Pitbull sat down with the ladies of “The Real” and guest co-host Evelyn Lozada.

During the show, Pitbull discussed his phenomenal success, which includes, deals with Wal-Mart, his own Sirius XM channel liquor brand Bombay and most recently, his new Pitbull Cuba fragrance for men and women.

While discussing his success during the sit-down with co-hosts Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, Pitbull dismissed the age-old notion that “money cannot buy happiness.”

“You know, a friend of mine told me, I don’t know how it came up in conversation, but he said, no I said it. I said ‘man, money doesn’t buy happiness,'” Pitbull said. “And he goes, ‘No, money does buy happiness, you just got to give it away.'”

This led Pitbull to change his way of thinking about money, and how his he can impact others in a positive way.

Pitbull recently SLAM (Sports and Leadership Academy) Nevada, which is a charter middle school  for students interested in careers in sports leadership and management and the rapper plans to do more with his money.

“I know we all heard the record before ‘Mo Money Mo Problems,’ so I call it ‘Mo Money, Mo Solutions.’ Why? ‘Cause you’re constantly helping other people’s problems,” Pitbull said.
