Favorite Quotes from Flo Rida
“The fact that I recorded this record so fast, it was almost like a freestyle. I think it probably took me less than an hour to do all the verses. That record reminds me so much of the Miami bass, so I was able to put my thing on it. And T-Pain having such a good melody on the hook, and me having some great melodies on the verses — the record just has so much ear candy [and] the lyricism was just amazing. When I heard, I just knew it was gonna be big, ’cause T-Pain was doing a lot of huge records at the time.” – Flo Rida
“It was amazing. High school friends, my family, fans, they all came out to Best Buy. DJ Khaled and Rick Ross came out, Cool & Dre. I signed autographs. It was just like, all the work that I put in prior, it was like a dream come true, just to see that support.” – Flo Rida
“Growing up in Miami, having these different cultures and being inspired in so many ways musically has let me have a very long career, ’cause just when you think I’m gonna do this type of record, I go and do something else.
