Pitbull is an American rapper and actor. He is also known as Mr. 305 and Mr. Worldwide.

He was born in Miami, Florida, to first-generation Cuban-American parents, Alysha Ángela Acosta and José Antonio Armando Pérez Torres. His father was born in Havana. His parents instilled the Cuban culture in him by making him memorize the words of Cuban poet, José Martí.

In an article in the Miami Times, Pitbull stated that being “white with blue eyes” made his journey into the rap music industry a little difficult as he did not fit the typical mold for a rapper.

Pitbull’s primary genre is Latin Rap and Reggaeton with some Miami Bass flavor. He has a penchant for dropping verses in Spanish.

        He is naturally pink complexion. Childhood photos of him prove that and he is also naturally blonde. Growing up in Florida has darkened his skin but naturally he is pale. His father is also pale. His mom on the other hand looks triguena.
