While hometown pride has always been a tenet of hip-hop, few rappers have matched the intensity of Pitbull’s devotion to Miami. He rarely misses a chance to plug his birthplace, naming his debut album and a handful of songs after it. Thus, it should come as no surprise that his newest track is called Dem Miami Boyz. As its title suggests, Pitbull spends the track cataloging the traits that make male Miamians so much harder than everyone else. From what I gather, Miami boys move a lot of coke and do a lot of hard time—sounds like a pretty dynamic lifestyle. Producer DJ Noodles contributes a relatively straightforward, hard-hitting beat. Dem Miami Boyz is featured on DJ Noodles & DJ Buddha Presents: Pitbull: Free Agent Mixtape (available now).
