Today, Sept. 16 is the birthday of the Sunshine State's own Flo Rida.

Born and raised in Carol City, Fla., Flo Rida exploded on the scene with his debut album Mail On Sundays  with four singles that charted on Billboard 100: "Low," "Elevator," "In The Ayer" and "Roll." "Low" stayed atop the Hot 100 at the No. 1 stop for 10 weeks straight. Nobody in 2008 can forget the line "Apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur." 

The turnt up Floridian would go on and release three more albums, amassed over 75 million downloads worldwide and many hit records. Though he's considered main stream pop at this point, Flo Rida has worked with the likes of Lil Wayne, Timbaland, Birdman and Yung Joc. Now, Flo frequently teams up with fellow Floridian Pitbull. The two just dropped the video for their new song "Greenlight."

Happy Birthday, Flo Rida!
