Flo Rida (born Tramar Dillard, 16.12.1979) Flo Rida is an American rapper, previously a member of the 2 Live Crew
Childhood & Early Career: Tramar Dillard was born in Carol City, Florida. Whilst he was a teenager, he performed with the hip-hop collective 2 Live Crew. Jodeci's DeVante Swing soon noticed Flo Rida's work with Fresh Kid Ice (also of 2 Live Crew) but none of the major labels were willing to offer them a record deal. As a result, Flo Rida enrolled in the University of Nevada, then Las Vegas and Barry University.
Following a phone call from Poe Boy Entertainment, Flo Rida returned home to Florida and signed a deal with them in 2007. He began to associate himself with Floridian rappers such as Trina, Trick Daddy and Rick Ross.
Flo Rida's debut single was a promotional release, featuring Rick Ross, named 'Birthday'. His first widespread release was the track 'Bitch, I'm From Dade County', on DJ Khaled's We the Best album. The album also featured Dre and Brisco.
Music Career: In 2008, Flo Rida released his debut album, Mail On Sunday. The debut single, 'Low' featured T-Pain and was a huge commercial success. The track was also featured on the soundtrack to Step Up 2 The Streets. Another single, 'Elevator', featured the renowned hip-hop producer Timbaland, whilst will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas featured on 'In The Ayer'. The final track from the album was 'Roll' and featured Sean Kingston.
Flo Rida also appeared on tracks by a number of different artists, including 'We Break The Dawn' by Michelle Williams and a remix of Madonna's '4 Minutes'. He also appeared on albums by DJ Khaled (We Global) and Ace Hood (Gutta).
Flo Rida started to record his second album less than a year after the release of Mail On Sunday. R.O.O.T.S., the name of the second album stands for Route Of Overcoming The Struggle. Released in March 2009, the album features production from the likes of Dr. Luke and DJ Montay. The lead single from the album, 'Right Round' became Flo Rida's second number one single.

Flo Rida's manager was urged to leave the arena by...er....Flo Rida!
Flo Rida's manager was ejected from the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers game on Monday night (June 3, 2013) for trash talking! Flo Rida was seemingly enjoying the game when his manager began verbally attacking Pacers player Jeff Pandergraph who was sitting on the bench. We have no idea why he started doing this.
According to TMZ.com, TNT's side-line reporter Craig Sager rushed over to find out what the fuss was about to find Flo Rida's manager yelling at Pendergraph. "It actually was Flo Rida's manager who was ejected," he explained, "He and Pendergraph had been going back and forth. He got to be such a distraction that the officials came over and tried to eject him. He wanted to stay."
No word yet from Flo Rida, though he presumably wasn't best pleased about having to sit on his own for the remainder of the game. He reportedly told his man, "You're my manager, but you've got to get out of here now." The huge Heat fan had tweeted of his excitement before the game, telling followers, "Lets go @MiamiHEAT!!!"

"I'd like to say I can imagine how it's going to feel, but I'm not quite sure," says Seacrest, quoted by The Associated Press. "I looked forward so much to each year that I did the show with him."
Seacrest is using the sad fact of Clark’s passing as motivation to make this year’s Rockin’ Eve better than ever in tribute. The presenter is reportedly hard at work, hammering out the “nitty-gritty” around the show, which will air from 8pm on the 31st, up until 2am on New Year’s Day. A host of A-list performance have already been booked, like Carly Rae Jepsen, Neon Trees, Flo Rida and Pitbull. Taylor Swift, who has arguably been one of 2012’s biggest success stories, will fill the headlining slot right before midnight. The show will air live, as usual, from Times Square in New York, but without Clark as a host there will undoubtedly have to be some changes.

Justin Bieber was among those performing at the second night of the KIIS FM Jingle Ball, with pretty much anyone who's been anyone making an appearance over the radio network's massive two-dayer. Sunday night (December 2) at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles saw current chart sensation Taylor Swift coming up against The Jonas Brothers - who found themselves eclipsed by the star. Last night, though (December 3), it was the turn of Bieber - still deep into his lengthy tour - Ke$ha, YouTube sensation Psy and fast rising British group The Wanted, among others, to provide the party.
Kate Bosworth has become the new face of Topshop with a glamorous video showing the star singing 'Winter Wonderland'.
The 'Superman Returns' actress was chosen by the Philip Green brand to don a glitzy, dark red gown and re-create the inspirational piano scene from 1989's 'The Fabulous Baker Boys' which starred Michelle Pfeiffer. "This project brings together two important aspects of my life: cinema and fashion", says the actress who was also a Calvin Klein Jeans model in 2008. "I have always been a fan of the Topshop brand and it has been an honour to work with Sir Phillip and the team. I hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as we did making it." The clip was directed by Michael Polish of 'Twin Falls Idaho' and 'The Astronaut Farmer' fame.
The song looks to be in with a chance for the 2012 Christmas number one now being available on iTunes, but first it has to hit the UK Official Singles Chart. It will face competition from Olly Murs whose single 'Troublemaker' featuring Flo Rida is top for the second week in a row and from The Pogues with their much-loved 1987 Christmas hit 'Fairytale of New York' featuring Kirsty Maccoll.

Around three million people are expected to line the streets of New York for Macy’s 86th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. The event kicks off at 8am and already, teams of workers have been hard at work setting up for the parade, with giant inflatables being set in place for the huge yearly event. An enormous Buzz Lightyear was blown up last night, along with an enormous Hello Kitty figure and Sonic the Hedgehog will be showing his face, too.

Flo Rida fans might want to snag a position with a decent vantage point for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York on Saturday, after it was announced the hip-hop star would be performing aboard a 30-foot float. As always, the parade will feature numerous inflatable landmarks and fancily decorated floats.
"This is a dream come true," Flo Rida told the New York Daily News, "I remember as a kid getting together with my whole family to watch the Thanksgiving Day parade and thinking about how someday I'd be on a float." Flo Rida will actually be riding the newspaper's own 'Big Apple' float and argued that even though he's from a city 1,200 miles away, it's still pretty special. "I know I'm from Miami, but I come to New York City a lot. It's very special to ride on the float of New York's hometown newspaper." The Daily News enlisted the help of R&B legend Mary J Blige for their float in 2011 and they'll be hoping Flo Rida does a similarly sterling job.
The celebrations begins at 9am on November 24, 2012, at 77th St and Central Park West, where 16 giant balloons, 28 floats and 11 marching bands begin their trip to the south of the city. Plenty of celebrities will appear at the event, including Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, Whoopi Goldberg and basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
