Flo Rida Bio

Jun 18, 2012

Rapper Flo Rida has dominated the charts with his catchy hip hop-pop hits, including “Good Feeling” and “Low” feat. T-Pain, but did you know he started out by spitting verses with his friends as a teenager? Find out more about him in his Kidzworld Bio!

Florida to Flo Rida

Tramar Dillard (who we know as Flo Rida) wars born in Carol City, Florida. It turns out music runs in the family, he has seven sisters and some of them used to sing in a gospel choir. When he was in high school Tramar joined a rap group with some friends called GroundHoggz because they all loved music so much. He was discovered by the three other members when Tramar, who lived in the same building, spit some verses for them. The guys in the group were bowled over and instantly wanted him in the group.

In School and In Studio

Despite working with Fresh Kid Ice from 2 Live Crew and a member of Jodeci, Flo Rida was initially turned down by major labels, so after graduating high school he enrolled in an international business management program at the University of Nevada for two years all while continuing to pursue his music dream.

After receiving a call from Poe Boy Entertainment Flo Rida returned to Florida and signed with them  and began to work with rap industry heavy weights like Rick Ross, Trina, T-Pain and DJ Khaled. His major breakthrough came when he released the song “Low” featuring T-Pain off his debut album Mail on Sunday. It reached number 1 on the Billboard Charts and stayed there for 10 weeks!

Wild Ones

After the success of Mail on Sunday Flo Rida returned to the studio to produce his next album, R.O.O.T.S as well as collaborating with artists like Lady Gaga and Three Six Mafia and in 2010 he released his third album Only One Flo. His most recent album Wild Ones features the hit song “Good Feeling” and has topped the charts in the U.S, U.K., Germany and more!
