Yes, you read correctly. Flo Rida has a workout DVD in the works, according to Billboard, who talked to the rapper about his upcoming projects at the Teen Choice Awards.
"I’ve always been about fitness," he said, "and my fans can definitely appreciate that."
The rapper said he has a very specific fitness regimen that gives him the rock hard body on display in many of his music videos. "I'm definitely going to do that,” he told Billboard. "I have quite a workout regimen."
The DVD’s release could come as early as later this year. He says the workout will be "flexible," so fans should have no trouble doing it at home.
This could be a cool new venture for Flo, but if his idea of a workout is to “put your lips together and come real close,” we’re not sure fans are going to exercise or sexercise.
Flo's latest album, Wild Ones, hit stores earlier this month. The hitmaker is enjoying some big success on the Billboard charts with his singles "Whistle" and "Wild Ones," which sit at numbers 7 and 13, respectively, on the Hot 100.
Flo Rida really appreciates his fans — so much so that during a recent CNN interview, the rapper gave out his personal cell-phone number on air, inviting them to get in touch.
This was no accident. Flo looked straight into the camera and offered the number: (305) 528-2786. When the reporter asked how many phone calls and text messages he answered on average, he responded, "About 30 percent."
When we tried to call the number from our MTV Newsroom phone — I was looking forward to asking if his refrigerator was running or if Ben Dover was there — we got a message saying the mailbox was full. Bummer. Maybe Pete Burns from Dead or Alive saw the CNN interview and left a bunch of messages asking if he could join the rapper onstage during "Right Round"? He needs the work.
Flo Rida hit the stage at the Roxy on Sunday night with the help of some special guests, including Flavor Flav, Pleasure P and 7-year-old B-Boy prodigy, Jalen.
Flo Rida teamed up with MySpace Music to bring an unforgettable free show to the legendary west coast venue, in support of his new album R.O.O.T.S. which dropped on March 31.
The first single off of his sophomore album, "Right Round," has broken all previous digital download records, having locked in the #1 spot for 12 weeks, until last week when it was pushed to #2 by Lady GaGa's "Poker Face." Now Flo Rida is bringing that same success it to the stage, with an upcoming show in London on April 13, and more Stateside dates scheduled for later this year …
This morning, as I looked at our shoot schedule for the week, I noticed that Flo Rida would be making a visit to Times Square for next week's Mixtape Monday. I wanted to ask him what he thought about something that occurred last weekend in Denver ...
On Saturday night, one of my favorite bands, the Disco Biscuits, were playing a three-set concert at the Ogden Theatre. The show was capped off by a somewhat unusual song choice for an encore: The band played Flo Rida's club anthem "Low," and from the video of the show on YouTube, it looks as if the audience was having as much fun dancing to it as the band was playing it. Hands in the air and hats tipped sideways, Ogden got low, low, low ...
So I thought it would be pretty cool to get Flo Rida's opinion about the Biscuits' tribute. I showed him the video on a small clam-shell player: He laughed as it played and kept saying, "That's crazy! Look at the crowd!" Read More...
Down in Panama City Beach, Florida, mtvU is having its 4th annual Spring Break. Artists like Kid Sister, Lupe Fiasco, Panic at the Disco, Paramore and Flo Rida are all making the trip down here over the next two weeks to perform and partake in the parties. Tuesday night, both Lupe Fiasco and Flo Rida were stuck in Atlanta due to mechanical problems with their airplane. With both scheduled to perform Wednesday, there was panic in the production room.
Luckily, some flights opened up Wednesday morning, and thousands of college students gathered around the stage on the beach at 1 p.m. to hear the first performance: Lupe Fiasco featuring Matthew Santos. Telling the crowd, "This is what a Grammy sounds like," Lupe performed five of his tracks, bringing Santos out for most of them. Afterwards, Lupe and I talked onstage about his new album, The Cool, and how much he likes playing with a full band.
Later on, I was able to catch up with him backstage. While he didn't want to "talk politics," we did talk about his music. I noticed that, between songs, Lupe talked about how sometimes his label asks him to "dumb it down" and stop using so many big words in his lyrics. If you listen to The Cool, you'll find that not only do its tracks have a rich vocabulary, but they also cover a wide range of issues. Lupe told me that "the point" is to make an album that has the music to appeal to a mainstream audience, while at the same time "sneaking" powerful messages into the lyrics. We also talked about his book and Kanye West's "Glow in the Dark" tour, featuring Rihanna, N.E.R.D. and, of course, Lupe himself. Read More...
