Early Life: Flo Rida’s real name is Tramar Lacel Dillard, and he was born on September 16th of 1979. He was raised alongside seven sisters in Carol City, Florida. From a young age, Tramar was closely connected to the music industry. His sisters often sang in a Gospel group, and his brother-in-law was a so-called “hype man” for a local rap group.
Early Career: By the time Tramar was in ninth grade, he was part of a rap group called GroundHoggz. For the next eight years, he remained a member of this crew. One day, a local rapper called Fresh Kid Ice decided to take Flo Rida under his wing and teach him the ropes. This period of education helped Flo Rida, although he was rejected by the first few record labels he approached with his demo reel.
After studying Business Management for a few months at University, Flo Rida emerged in 2000 to join Hot Boyz. At this point, he started to make valuable connections with other Southern hip-hop artists.
Breakthrough as a Solo Artist: In 2008, Flo Rida released his debut solo album, Mail on Sunday. He made waves with the first single off the album, which was a collaboration with T-Pain called “Low.” The track later reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, putting Flo Rida on the map. His increased notoriety allowed him to collaborate with various high-profile artists during this time.
In 2009, Flo Rida released his second album, R.O.O.T.S. The album contained another major hit that reached the top spot on the charts: “Right Round” featuring Kesha. Following the success of this second album, Flo Rida featured as a guest artist on a number of tracks by other artists once again.
Mainstream Success: Flo Rida’s third album, Only One Flo (Part 1), featured a range of guest artists such as T-Pain, Gucci Mane, Ludacris, and many others. This third album allowed Flo Rida to consolidate his early success and establish a foothold in the music industry. In 2010, the same year he released this album, he established his own record label called International Music Group.
Flo Rida’s fourth album, Wild Ones, was released in 2012. The album contained more high-performing hits, and during 2012 Flo Rida also performed at WWE’s WrestleMania. In 2015, Flo Rida released an EP entitled My House. Once again, he proved capable of releasing hits that reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
