Grammy award winning artist Pitbull received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday (July 15th), something very few rap artists have accomplished. During his ceremony in California, the international star told the crowd, “To be up here, it just goes to show what happens when you focus, when you work hard, when you believe in yourself, when you go against all odds.”
