On Friday, July 15, Pitbull became one of a short list of rappers to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“To be up here, it just goes to show what happens when you focus, when you work hard, when you believe in yourself, when you go against all odds,” Pitbull said at the ceremony. “It’s about being the prime example of what the American dream is and what it embodies.”
