Pitbull Ranked Ninth Worst Rapper of All Time

Pitbull_Worst_Rapper_All_Time.jpg
Mr. 305 is not amused.

From the weed to the X, from the X to the blow, Pitbull has hustled his Cuban-American dick off to fulfill a prophecy that he rapped about nearly ten years ago on "305 Anthem": "Mark my words, I'm next to blow."

He was right. El tipo's proven to be a master pitchman, hawking a cleverly calculated Miami brand to audiences around the world and dismissing the jealous naysayers who don't understand the 305 business model: Money Is A Major Issue.

So, when Gentleman's Quarterly named Pit one of the 25 worst rappers of all time in its latest issue, Armandito presumably wiped his ass with Drake's cover and lit a stack of $100 bills to neutralize the smell of bullshit.

Clearly, the scribe who, in a desperate cry for web traffic, trolled the internet with a vapid collection of corny jokes didn't read the very publication that overpaid him for this shitty list.

From GQ:

9. Pitbull A Cuban-American Vanilla Ice who flacks for Dr Pepper and Bud Light -- try mixing those two for a fun speedball! -- Pitbull specializes in mind-numbing Eurodisco about hot girls and nightlife, with witless, winking reminders of his heritage: My tongue is bilingual, ready to play with that spot where you tingle.

Just as Pit candidly explained in an April 2012 GQ profile, his career life has always been about the bottom dollar. And maybe that's why you think he's shitty.

"Look, Pitbull is a product," Armando Pérez said. "Don't get it fucked up -- I'm a businessman. This industry is 90 percent business, 10 percent talent. It's the people who think they're talented, that their shit don't stink, who get left behind."

So while Rob Tannenbaum may think that Pitbull's rap game is on par with Kevin Federline's flow (and we would too if we listened only to Top 40 radio and were allergic to fun), he doesn't have a clue about profit potential.

Daleee!

Now just saying, but how can this person be on a worst rappers of all time list when he is not even a rapper. He is either a pop singer or a pop act. Pick what ever you want, but just make sure that the word pop is attached to his name and not Hip Hop. He sure as hell is not a Hip Hop artist or a real rapper. Or an artist for that matter. And type that in as many websites as you possibly can and get the word out. Especially if you are a huge fan of Rap and Hip Hop and you actually love and respect the music and the culture. We need to counter attack the media by spreading the truth and exposing the b.s. lies. Enough of all this crap. We need to take back what is ours and this is just another way to do just that. We either fight for it right now, or we loose it forever. Just like Alex Jones always says, "Because there is a war for our minds." And they are using all forms of music to keep us entertained by dumbing us down and keeping us ignorant of what they are planing and already doing. Chihuahua should be ashamed of himself for selling his soul just to be on some wack ass commercials selling poison, and been a tool of the devil. Peace out.

I'm not gonna hate on him for getting paid. I can respect that. But lets be honest. Pitbull is lyrically hot garbage and does nothing for rap but sell overproduced pop songs for the clubs. So don't be mad cause he's wack and getting called out for it. I'm sure the guy who painted "Dogs Playing Poker" is getting paid, but he'll never be Van Gogh.

what he does can never ever be considered MUSIC.

MUSIC is what Bach, Queen, Jimi Hendrix (to cite some) did....

not what he does...

Wow this article is as much of a joke as the GQ one was. I've been a fan of Pitbull's since around '05. His M.I.A.M.I cd still gets major play in my house. Not a lot of rappers I'm still listening to that long.  Any "bad rapper"  list that doesn't have Lil Wayne on it has no credibility in my eyes. And for the record? His new CD "Mr.305 International Takeover is seriously amazing.

He is the most humblest of humble Miamians that ever decided to announce their humbleness. He was arrested for a DUI a few years back and he loudly and drunkenly asked the arresting officer, "Do you know who I am, Papi?!" If Obama gets a Nobel Peace Prize then Pitbull most assuredly deserves one as well.. Pitbull is as humble as Obama is peaceful.

Funny they feature him in GQ, and then name him worst rapper! BS! I've been listing to Pit since he came out with Culo and been a fan ever since (I even run a site on him!) - he's better (and GREATER) than a lot of these "RAPPERS" out there. They can hate all they want!

If you could do whatever you do for a living and be as bad as Pitbull, Honey boo boo, or the folks from the Jersey Shore... and come out the other end a multi millionaire, let me know so I can hate you too! Until then, try harder!

Never considered him a rapper. His first album, like every other record by miami rappers is just preschool rhymes. It's laughable to think that success equals talent in the music world today.

Exactly! I met him with Stephanie years ago when he was becoming famous at International Mall. He was eating Chinese at the food court w a Hialeah looking mofo & Steph freaked out. He got up, hugged us, took a pic w us & sat back down. Totally chill. So FUCK the haters. At least he stays humble & reps Miami. Justine Defilippi :D

Met the dude just after he got rid of the cornrows. He's down to earth and gave me some mixtapes and told me to pass it around to my friends if I like it.

If you think about it, every time you criticize him, you get his name out and make people curious about him. It's controversy that brings publicity that brings financial success. So if you really hate him, don't talk about him at all.

Like he said, 10% talent and 90% "business". In my day we called that 90% something else.

The lesson here is that you dont have to be good at what you do to be successful. I see it all the time in the executive world. I wonder all the time how some of these people became VPs and CEOs.

Well, to be fair, as corny as he always was, he probably wanted to be a real Hip Hop rapper when he was a kid, but the Illuminati gave him an offer that he just could not refuse. Even if he actually wanted to refuse it. So they then gave him all this false success. Which also included the commercials to sell poison. From that point on he became the joke that we all know today. A pop star, not a rapper. And now he will never be a rapper.

And just what were you actually expecting him to do? The total opposite of what you said he did? Like tell you to leave him alone? Or to go to hell? Do you even know what acting is? Well that is what people that want to be famous do when they need to built a fan base so they can sell what ever it is that they need to sell to get that money. Now, behind closed doors they might be someone totally different than what you saw in public. So, unless you know this person, you don't really know this person. Only what he wanted you to see in public. Peace out.

Also, I suggest that you do some research on this guy, because what he does is more than just party music. Peace out  - James From Miami
