Kings River Life had the privilege of covering “Mr. Worldwide” himself, Pitbull, on July 28, when he entertained the crowd at Table Mountain Casino. The rapper, singer, songwriter, businessman, and actor brought his signature blend of genres to the show. He’s known for dabbling in all kinds of musical styles ranging from hip hop, Latin, reggaeton, rap, and pop. All the hits he played were equally satisfying to the diverse crowd who attended the show. We had the honor of covering him back in February 2020, so it’s been a long time coming for his return, and it was great.
