Biography

Tramar Dillard (born September 17, 1979 in Miami, Florida), better known by his stage name Flo Rida, is an American rapper signed to Poe Boy Entertainment. He began his rap career touring with 2 Live Crew and was then featured on DJ Khaled's album "We The Best" in 2006.

In 2009, he released his second album R.O.O.T.S, and its first single, Right Round featuring Ke$ha, was #1 for six weeks. Flo Rida's first single from his fourth album, Only One Rida (Part 2), is "Good Feeling."

His work with 2 Live Crew member Fresh Kid Ice attracted attention of DeVante Swing, a member of the band Jodeci. However, he was rejected by several of the major labels, so he sought many other jobs outside of music. After graduating from high school in 1998, he studied international business management at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for two years and attended Barry University for two months. He returned to Florida to continue pursuing his music career after receiving a phone call from a representative of the independent label Poe Boy Entertainment.

    I don't agree with most of you.
    The beginning of the video is a rip-off of I Gotta Feeling.
    The song itself sounds like Junior Caldera's What U Get.
    The title should be "Can't Handle Me", without "Club".
    And what did David Guetta do in this one? Absolutely credited for nothing. I really don't recognize his style! I know what I'm saying!
