Flo Rida Career Beginnings
Flo Rida joined an amateur rap group called the GroundHoggz. The GroundHoggz had been a three-man group, with members who lived in the same apartment complex as Flo Rida. They started recording at underground studios in Carver Ranches. The GroundHoggz, in this four-man incarnation, remained together for eight years. Early on in his career one of his sisters, Julia died due to bronchitis. Her death greatly affected Dillard and his career, with him telling MTV “I was very close to her, and I told myself that I was going to do this for my sister.”
While performing, Fresh Kid Ice of 2 Live Crew took notice and asked him to be his hype man, and shortly after he took him for a show in Hawaii. They developed a long-lasting friendship; Flo Rida considers this period as his schooling. He would often bring his group around when performing with him. They were eventually all invited as featured guests on Fresh Kid Ice’s fourth album Freaky Chinese (2004).
Flo Rida’s work with 2 Live Crew member Fresh Kid Ice, attracted the attention of DeVante Swing, a member of the band Jodeci. However, he was rejected by several of the major labels, so he sought many other jobs outside of music. After graduating from high school in 1998, he studied international business management at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for two months and attended Barry University for two months. He returned to Florida to continue pursuing his music career after receiving a phone call from a representative of the independent label Poe Boy Entertainment.
Flo Rida signed with Hot Boyz, in 2000 and with Poe Boy, in 2004 and began affiliating himself for Cash Money with other Southern hip hop artists, such as Rick Ross, Trina, T-Pain, and Trick Daddy. A promotional single entitled “Birthday”, featuring Rick Ross, was his first significant release. He made his debut guest appearance with the song “Bitch I’m From Dade County” on DJ Khaled’s album We the Best (2007), which also features Trick Daddy, Trina, Rick Ross, Brisco, C-Ride, and DrE.

In addition to T-Pain, there were many featured guests throughout Mail on Sunday. Timbaland, who produced the second single “Elevator”, is also featured on the track. Rick Rss, and Trey Songz made appearances as well. Lil Wayne appeared on the track “American Superstar”, while Sean Kingston appeared on the J. R. Rotem-produced “Roll”, which was co-written by Compton rapper Spitfiya. Various other guests include Birdman, Brisco, and Yung Joc.
“Money Right”, featuring Brisco and Rick Ross, was scheduled to be the fourth single, but this was canceled due to the upcoming release of Flo Rida’s second studio album, R.O.O.T.S. His second collaboration with T-Pain, “I Bet”, as well as his collaboration with Trina, named “Bout It”, both did not make the final track list, but were recorded.
