And this wildly talented rapper and musician knows a thing or two about fun. In his music video, Wild One’s, featuring the hit singer, Sia, for example, Flo Rida can be seen stylin’ and having a blast while participating in a variety of thrilling experiences…like jumping out of a plane.
“It was so fun,” he says. “Before, I thought no one could pay me to jump out of a plane. For the video, I felt I had to do it. It was a necessity. Now I think, whoever doesn’t do it is missing out. It was scary going up there, but you get a good feeling.”
This award winning, chart topping Florida native has become an international superstar by blending pop, hip-hop, and club music. His music has amassed more than 75 million downloads worldwide.
