Cuban-American rapper Pitbull is set to release the fourth set of his studio album. Named "The Boatlift", the album that is due May 22 generates lots of his rapping persona compared to the previous three.
"It's a part two to El Mariel but more urban-based," he said. "There's more street records on there. I'm giving them another side to Pitbull. I had all the club records - you can easily go 45 minutes in the club just off my records. I just want to take these folks for a ride on this album based on what I know."
To back up this album, he tapped Lil Jon as the producer of first single "Sticky" and featured Jim Jones in the same song. Another track "Tell Me" has circulated Hispanic radio outlets and received heavy airplay. Besides Lil Jon and Jones, Pitbull also kept Trick Daddy, T-Pain, Fabo of D4L and Trina on the list of 'helping people'.
As a whole album, Pitbull described the new piece as "gonna be a lot more hard-core beats."
