Some artists are known for being attached to a certain location in the world, and Flo Rida quite obviously has his attachment to Miami.
So it was a big deal when the 39-year old rapper, singer and songwriter appeared at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday against the Detroit Lions to perform for the Miami Dolphins halftime show.
"To be home in the 305, I mean I anticipated coming out here for a very long time, and I think this may be a pre-Super Bowl halftime performance for the Dolphins, you know what I'm saying? We have it down in the 305, yeah it was so much fun."
The longtime Dolphins fan gave shout outs to the cheerleaders and the fans while talking to the media, and also stated he loved Dan Marino and the Marks brothers, which is a true indicator that he's been following the team for quite some time.
And the experience he had performing at halftime is one that Flo Rida is likely to never forget.
"My passion is performing, and at the same time, to be home, you just get tremendous love." he said. "I grew up in Carol City not too far from here, to come home versus performing at night and the day is basically the same for me, because all my family and friends come out and they support. It's the Sunshine State, you know where there's day and night, Miami is like 24 hours."
It was his first time performing at Hard Rock for a halftime show, but he certainly hopes it won't be his last. Flo Rida also has an album coming out soon, and he joked that Dolphins fans should help him come up with a name for it.
Well, that's what Twitter is for, so why not?
