Pitbull
El Mariel

pitbull.jpgSince his debut in 2004, the Cuban-American MC Pitbull has stayed true to his Miami roots and dedicated most of his work to the art of shaking butts. Yet given the politically charged title of his sophomore album, El Mariel, named after the infamous Cuban boat lift that relocated almost 125,000 Cubanos to Florida, Pit appeared to be preparing himself to become his people’s mouthpiece. Instead, the project overflows with repetitive club-heavy songs, with only an occasional change of topic.

Focusing more on ass-shaking anthems, Pit becomes more of a one-trick potro than a political pundit. On the Miami bass throwback “Fuego,” he takes aim at studio gangstas, over a boisterous interpolation of pop singer Debbie Deb’s hit “When I Hear Music.” Then Mr. Collipark helps Mr. 305 spit more heat than D. Wade in overtime on the marching band drum–laced “Ay Chico (Lengua Afuera).”

While eardrum-shattering beats and thunderous hooks are in the majority here, Pit does show brief signs of expansion. Take the precautionary drug-trade cut, “Come See Me,” where he flows seamlessly over DJ Toomp’s chopped-and-screwed version of Willie Colón’s classic salsa number “La Murga.” Similarly, “Blood Is Thicker Than Water” comments on earth-changing current events (“I escaped poverty (poverty)/I don’t own jewelry, muthafucka, I own property/You can send ’em tsunamis that hit Indonesia/But ain’t a muthafuckin’ thing stoppin’ me”).

These moments of clarity are few and far between. Aside from a sparse few nods at poignancy (“Raindrops”) and sonic variation (the Lil Jon–produced “Dime [Remix]”), El Mariel is one big party that goes on too long. In fact, Pit could’ve trimmed some fat by disposing of less-than-stellar cuts like the crossover miss “Jungle Fever,” which features Wyclef’s crackling wails. The music may knock in the club, but Pitbull’s lack of diversity is a major issue. —JESÚS TRIVIÑO ALARCÓN

  • e aka the real noreiaga

    This review is dead on. Pit has catchy hooks, dope flows, and ill beats. But there is no subject matter at all. I was expecting a political album not a party one based on the title.

  • SEAN P

    THIS NIGGAS DOODOO ON A STICK.

  • Pittiful

    Pittibul is wack juice.

  • Face Phoenix

    As a Pitbull fan this album was a huge let down, it’s not horrible but I expected better. I never thought the Ying Yang Twins could make a party song worse. Pit’s album sounded like a experimental project with a few bright spots ( Mainly “Raindrops”). Sad Sad Sad.

  • rob

  • El Pelotera

    No im sorry ese, but Dominican Boy is right, Pitbull is the best latin rapper to be mainstream. Lil rob is a fucking piece of shit, white boys could beat him, and while at that, Frost, Mr. capone, and b real, suck hella too meng, r u serious.

    Pinche way

  • e aka the real noreiaga

    Pit ain’t in the top 10 of latin rappers he has a good flow but no where near the best latin rappers.

    Orishas, Tego, Calle 13 > Dyablo, Mr. Shadow, Conejo > Lil Rob, Frost, Omar Cruz > Pitbull, Fat Joe, Cuban Link

  • rider

    look lil rob n all those nasty ass mexicans with that horrible chicano music is the worst music in the world i njever met some 1 who actually like lil robs gay ass till i came on this page cause lil rob is horrible and all chicano music is 2 also fat joe is not even close 2 being as good as pit neither is none of the reggeton gay artist n cuban link is horrible 2 pit is the best no matter what

  • http://myspace.com/gunitsoldier50xl Ether

  • http://XXLMAG.COM PUERTO RICO

    DATS MY BOT N ALL YALL NIGGAS NEED TO STOP HATIN LET ME SEE U FLOW LIKE DAT SO SUK MY DICK CAUSE ITS LATINOS FO LIFE’

  • dominicanboy

    how can u guys compare any nasty mexican rappers to pit i hate mexican rap mexicans r discusting pit is the rawlest chico out n 4 ever stop hating

  • lol @ dominicanboy

    you can tell dominicanboy was born somewhere around 1993, cuz the greatest latino rapper ever=big pun, hands down. and btw, all them mexican rappers ese named suck, minus b real, cuz well, he ain’t even mexican. and for the record, pitbull is pretty average. occasionally he’ll shine with a quick 16, but for the most part his songs all sound like carbon copies of each other.

  • YAY AREA MA

    ON DA REAL.. YA’LL SSTOP HATTIN’. I JUST HAVE TO SAY IF HE WASNT ANY GOOD HE WOULDNT BEE SELLIN ANY CD’Z N DOIN IT BIG!!YARAIMEAN…N I GOTZ LOTZ OF LOVE FO HIM CUZ HE BEE HOLDIN IT DOWN LASTLY YEA BIG PUN(RIP) WAS A GOOD RAPPER BUT HE’Z GONE!!…WE NEED NEW RAPPERS TO KEEP THIZ ISH GOIN…..

  • e aka the real noreiaga

    LOL @ people thinking Pits the best latino rapper.

    Pun was the best to ever do it.

    Currently Tego Calderon, Calle 13, or The Orishas are the best but you guys don’t even know spanish so….

    Pit dosen’t even rap in spanish that much how can he be the best latino

    Not hating on him though because he is dope.

  • dominicanboy

    first of all i was born in 1982 second of all big pun i never liked him at all he is wasd horrible second he didnt rep no latinos except puertoricans while pit reps all latinos not only cubans n he is way better in club songs streetsongs n lyrics so thats why he is the best he is sick with it n representing for all the chicos n b real is horrible 2 hes cuban but acts like a nsty mexican wow thats preety petetic n the only people that think pun was the best is puertoricans n if he was better than pit he would of gone gold like pit his first album n pits gon go platinum with his 2nd album el mariel

  • http://xxlmag.com m.i.a.4real

    pitbull is true solja.fuck all the haters that dont like 2 see the reality that pit is doin’ it now better than all the mcs that u mentioned even that there are 4 cubans in top 10.like pit says whoever dont like it, que se vallan pa la pinga. bitches!

  • http://PitbullElMarielXXL Lordz

    First I want to say that the best Latino Rapper of all time has to be Big-Pun, he did represent all latinos in general and his flow is unmatched to this time. Now my man Pit is sick too, I bought his album and for the most part is ill. And me being Mexican I’m not ashamed of our rappers but their caliber is not so great I admit it, but fuck it they gave it a shot. The really good thing about Pit is that he has gone really mainstream and he is getting a lot of attention for latino rappers he’s opening another huge door.

  • lol even harder @ dominicanboy

    for starters, pit only went GOLD for that m.i.a.m.i album. pun has TWO PLATINUM ALBUMS(capitol punishment and yeaah baby) and one gold(endangered species). and you are outta your delusional mind if you think pun isn’t the greatest latino emcee of all time. for starters, he has a classic album under his belt. pit doesn’t have a classic song in his catalouge yet. pun opened the door for the latino emcee to have commerical success in the game(first solo latin rapper to go platinum), during a time when black emcees were virtually all you ever saw on t.v. pun was an amazing lyricist, with an equally amazing flow and delivery, though towards the end of his career his health slowly took a toll on his breathe control and flow. pit has a pretty good flow and delivery…THATS IT. pit has yet to prove he can make a full length album about anything other than females, partying, “oye chico” etc etc. not to mention, pit REPS CUBANS, NOT LATINOS….pun REPPED LATINOS. take a poll, 99% of the ppl who vote, whether black, white, puertorican, dominican, cuban, colombian, etc are picking pun over pitbull. you woulda had a better chance pittin pun against fat joe, and joey crack is awful these days. and even with that said, even HE’S better than pitbull.

  • and for the record

    pit is a party emcee…..homie is the 2006 version of geraldo, aka, rico suave. trus story. i ain’t even hatin. the females like his music, can’t hate that. but just cuz the females like him doesn’t make him a nice(or credible) emcee. ask ll. at least ll had classic albums early on in his career.

  • to dominicanboy

    pit barely went gold, even tho he had like 5 videos in heavy rotation on mtv and bet. pun put out like a handful of videos and still managed to go platinum twice. 2x’s with capitol punhishment and 1x with yeah baby. they even put out that endangered species album after he died with like two new songs on it and one video, and even that went gold. pit has a ways to go before he can be the best ever. and just about everyone can agree pun was the greatest latino rapper ever, regardless of what their race is.

  • ccc

    i think pun was horrible n lets not talk about girl sonfs that gay ass 1 that whent boriqua morena was gay as fuck n please he was a blob only puertoricans like him more every other latin goes with pit cause he is way better n of course hes gon go platinum if he puts out 5 or 6 albums wait till pit puts out that much he whent gold his first time hes gone go platinum now n why niggas hate cause his musicx makes girls wanna fuck in the clubs sorry if ur gay n reather here mobb deep boring stories in the club but i rather here toma culo shake better than anything bottom line no 1 like pun hes not a legend hes basically as worse as fat joe

  • umm ccc

    lol @ mobb deep. last time i checked they were making worse club music with 50 than pit does. seems to me like you might be the one thats gay there fella. you just admitted the females like his music, and umm….your basically insinuating in more words or less that you have feminine traits. point blank, whether you like it or not, pun IS a legend, pit is NOT. in fact, you ARE in the minority of ppl that feel pun wasn’t great. you in that 00.1%…..99.9% of hip hop fans acknowledge pun as an all time great. listen to hip hop songs. thats why ppl always shout him out. his debut album went double platinum off one single. his second album went platinum off one single. pitbull BARELY went gold off the strength of 5 CLUB SONGS!! how you have lil jon producing damn near your whole album and you STILL struggle to sell 500,000?? took him a year to go gold for m.i.a.m.i. pun went platinum in a month with capitol punishment. and if we’re just talkin lyrically, pun still wins. sorry there lil guy. maybe you should get another hero

  • niggas is delusional

    any nigga that say pit is better than pun has GOT to be a cuban. that or a closet cuban, among other things. that nigga pit makes it blatant that he reps for cubans. look at his album covers and his blog. he ain’t say he latino’s hope, he said he CUBA’S hope. cubans always bug me out yo. niggas is the only latinos thats republican by majority. at least pun was for all latinos. vote for pedro.

  • bud

    for of all pun pnly rep puertorico please n pit reps all he said dominicano then cubano mexicano boriqua he doesent even say cuba first in the song so please

  • rob

    little rob sucks.
    capone-e sucks.
    frost is cool.
    b-real is cool.

  • for all the lames defending pitbull

    http://www.allhiphop.com/reviews/ ….ya man just did an review for allhiphop for capitol punishment. thats pun’s debut for all the slow people (dominicanboy and all 2390091 of his aliases). pitbull rated it a perfect 5 outta 5. and for the record, they rated pit’s new album a 3 outta 5. btw, pit has also sold a WHOOPING 67,000 in two weeks. this in a age when your average rapper does 100,000 out the gate his first week. so no, i don’t think homie’s gonna be going platinum anytime this decade. he’s lucky if he even goes gold again. maybe this will inspire him to ACTUALLY start making the good music he’s capable of.

  • LaQbAnItA

    those south cali rappers all sound the same….put the Capone, Shadow, Payaso, whoever else in a room…you cant even tell who is who…they all have the same beats, the same producers, the same damn labels, it is mass produced raps..it is just music too smoke too…at least you can dance and move your Latin Booty too Pitbull…..he is the new Luke Skywalker….dance and shake that ass…dont sit back and drink a 40 on the porch like the loser south cali rappers….whateva!!

  • PITPAT

    only beaners like this motherfucker & they dont like it cuz latin artist have talent its so they can show off to everyone there roots but deep down inside they know this shit is crap….

  • http://myspace/yonotoko yono toko

    I dig Pitbull…and the kind of music he’s fuckin’ with is Miami music. Now, I know most people don’t know nothing about Miami other than how pretty it is down here. But when this whole rap shit started, us folk down south could have given a shit as to what was happening in NY and LA. Deep down here we have a our own thing…tinged with Caribbean malicia. Our culture is ass shakin’, low-riding, thrunk thumpin’ party music. We don’t fuck with gangs or poverty or drug addiction, we just want to have a good time cause that’s what its about. People bark up and down that Pit didn’t get poltical enough, but down here politics are savagely currupt and speaking your mind down here isn’t encouraged. Say the wrong thing and your a communist, say the wrong thing and your Bush supporter. there’s no grey area in Miami. Yeah, we’re a third world country…hell, look whose brother was sitting in the governers office for multiple terms?? Say what you will about Pitbull, he’s popular as hell…women go crazy when they see this cat. He’s got some of the top artists in the country laying down tracks with him. He made it ya know – for an artists that’s cream. Like I said, you like or you don’t like Pitbull’s music whatever. But if you got shit against him cause he’s Latino, then then that shit is your problem.

  • http://xxl.com Aztek

    And we wonder why Latino’s ain’t in the spotlight? Look, we need to stop all the bullshit for real. We need to back each other up. Look who’s always on tv and always in the spotlight, it sure as hell ain’t us. Pitbull is doin something for our raza the new movement. We got latinos baggin on Latinos? WTF, open your eyes. That’s why we only got a few vatos in the game doin little damage. We are the largest group in the U.S, and we DONT get repped. Tenemos que poner la verga a todos los putos que no saben. I’m a spic ass mexican, but i can recognize game, Pits alright but we CAN do better wise up dumbasses.

  • It ain’t even that yono toko

    the problem isn’t with him being latino, cuz i’m half latino myself and i personally don’t dig his shit. thing is he just isn’t talking about anything, or rather, he isn’t living up to his full potential. i mean, trick daddy is a miami rap scene legend with gold and platinum plaques on his wall and countless radio hits, yet he STILL finds a way to mix things up subject matter wise. sure he has party songs, but he also has truly introspective shit like back in the dayz, america, etc. where as pitbull ONLY talks about two things, females and partying. and judging by his sales nobody wants to hear him talk about either. i mean come on, he’s been out for over a month now and ONLY sold 90,000 copies??? thats most dudes first week numbers. jim jones is indie as well and he did 100,000 out the gate his first week. people around the country ain’t tryna party 24/7 and the sooner pit realize that the sooner he will be accepted as a credible latino emcee, just like the late great big pun. see, there’s a time and a place for everything. politics, miami being a party town, and all that other shit you were talking about are not an excuse for an artist from your area to half ass an album for the sake of sales, or in pit’s case lack thereof.

  • PITPAT

    honestly tell the truth if this guy was a nigger would you be diggin his shit NO!!!!!! you only reppin him cuz he is a beaner and you wanna show love for your people which is alright but you spics dont give a fuck if he can make good music or not & im not talkin about lyrics im talkin good music in general cuz frankly i dont give a fuck about lyrics.

  • best rapper

    i’m cuban and i have to say that without a doubt big pun was/is the best latin rapper of alltime, with orishas right behind him. pit spits effortlessly but like mentioned by some, he’s not really rapping about anything on many songs. he needs to just spit it in english with good hooks and limited ass shaking beats and he’ll probably realize his potenial. As far as him reppin all latinos, of course he mostly reps cubans but he reps everybody else too! he was on a float at the puerto rican day parade(NYC)! that cat has love for everybody! Also, this mariel album has very little chance of going gold much less platinum. Peace

    Wow.

    While I admit, I am not a serious hardcore follower of pitbull from back in the day, which I attribute to the fact that I’m a spoiled white girl from the suburbs of michigan, I will say that I loved Miami. Not every cut, but the remix cd I liked even more. After my enthusiasm over the first disc, I was stoked to pick up his new cd, and I found myself, at first listen, feeling the same way you did. I liked the two mainstream club songs and rotated those two for a few days, I felt that this whole cd was just too similar to the last one to impress me at all.

    But then I listened to the whole thing. SURE, que tu sabes is a horrible song and it DOES sound just like something off the last cd, the rest of it really is diverse, and even if you CANT get into the beats, you can’t deny the boy’s lyrical stylings. He has a gift when it comes to that, and I love the distinction that Pitbull is a an amazing rapper, who just happens to be latino.

    Although a bit crude, cause most latino culture IS associated with a more ghetto culture, I think it’s amazing the diversity of being culturally aware of his raza, where he came from, being politically aware while partying it up, and showing that HISPANIC ELBOW GREASE he got workin for him!

    Plus, he’s hot.

    That is all.

    I heard a couple 16′s from pit on mixtapes which are ight punchlines, flow to where I was looking forward to a pit STREET album kinda like with Styles P but the buzz did not match the product. Pit over Pun? Never homie is gone and since I’m not into what soundscan or ASCAP got to say that I’m supposed to like, the only other latinos that can match Pun lyrically are Chino XL, Thirstin Howell III,Immortal Technique, and Celph Titled. If you add Fat Joe’s marketeability in a Voltron package with the other five you get Pun. Pit has been reduced to picachu.

    I’m Cuban and I still think that pitbull is average at best. Most Miami rap has nothing to do with talent anyway. Big Pun is by FAR the best latin rapper ever and he even saved fat joes dying career some years back.

    I only have one question…
    Where the hell did most of you learn to write? 90% of the people who post on this site have absolutely no concept of writing in a lucid and direct manner. Have you ever thought about using commas, periods, question marks, or any of the other syntax and grammar tools that have been adopted by the english language to help articulate your mindless rhetoric and “beefs?”

    Here’s a suggestion…
    If you really want someone to get your point, do not write in your street slang. It isn’t near as effective, and it is very hard for the reader to comprehend (not that most of you really have anything important to say anyways).

    You are disgracing yourselves and the people who helped raise and mold you. You are disgracing the hip hopsters you are trying to defend by writing things that don’t convey a real message…just like every one of Chingy’s songs. hahaha

    Final thought…
    Use some sense when you write; you may just “school some niggas.”

    …yes I am an avid hip-hop listener and have been for many years. I have seen it evolve into the crap we see from most artists today. Test my knowledge if you must.

  • john

    I just listened to some pitbull. I don’t even really think that is hip hop, so this coversation should move to some corny debate about reggeton. (that corny ass music that just stole basic hip hop concepts, but was perfect for artists who could not really rap)

  • MJ

    Pitbull does have sick flow. His albums and most of his guest appearences are club songs and “booty shakers” but they r off the hook. Those of you who go to clubs know what i mean. Unless you are gay, you want pitbull to keep makin these kinds of albums. The women go crazy. Appearently he’s doin somethin right cuz ya’ll actually took the time to post a comment on his work.
