The rapper was born to first-generation Cuban immigrants who separated just a few years after his birth. Pitbull grew up under rough conditions in Little Havana in Miami, where it has been reported that his mother sometimes had trouble making ends meet. In order to help make ends meet, Pitbull turned to selling drugs on the streets — that is, until his mother learned about it and kicked him out.

Today, Pitbull still has close ties to the area, both in the media, in his philanthropy and and in his personal life. In August, he helped build a charter school called Sports Leadership and Management.

In recent years, Pitbull has been able to make the jump from a relatively unknown rapper to a media icon. He can be seen promoting Dr. Pepper, Kodiak and Sheets energy strips. He's become a recognizable household name across many mediums, and it's safe to say that Pitbull is around to stay.

And today, he'll pass another birthday. Here we'll celebrate Pitbull's 32nd birthday with five fun facts. Read on to learn more about this charismatic rap mogul.
