Check out the interview below.</p>

<p><b>What other sides of Pitbull will we hear on “Rebelution?”</b></p>

<p>I have a record on the album called “Daddy’s Little Girl,” which is speaking about things that have happened to women in my family, very important women, such as my mother, my sister. I think people are going to hear it and go ... I ain’t know Pit really had that side to him. I keep saying it’s exciting because I’m excited. I genuinely am for this project, and especially with the records to come.</p>

<p><b>Do you think your former label wanted to hold you back?</b></p>

<p>The other label was an independent label. The staff was great, I still work with a lot of those people. We created our own staff off that independently. There was just one person that really didn’t get it. And everybody in the business knew about it. . . . So now we get the chance to actually go out, do good business with artists, get cleared for other records, be able to just blossom throughout the music industry.</p>

<p><b>During that time, did you think about getting out of the music industry?</b></p>

<p>I love to create music, I love to perform music, I dislike the music business. I think it takes away from a lot of artists and their creative juices. . . . There’s been times, yes, where I’ve thought about it, because I’ve always had a plan Z. Thank God I made the right decision and had the right people around me. . . . I seen an opportunity, and there’s nothing better than to beat somebody at their own game. And when I seen that, I took full advantage of it and I told myself even if I go broke fighting this fight, I will do it because I cannot lay my head at night saying I didn’t try, I just quit.</p>
