Pitbull Receives Family Day Artist Achievement Award from the T.J. Martell Foundation

Pitbull has added another award to his resume…

The 33-year-old Cuban American rap superstar, the top-ranking Latino artist on Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Acts list, was honored with the first ever Family Day Artist Achievement Award at the T.J. Martell Foundation Family Day, recently held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

The T.J. Martell Foundation uses Family Day, a carnival-style fundraiser with silent auctions and musical performances, to help raise money for cancer, leukemia and AIDS research. To date, the foundation has raised over $5 million, with Corson and his team contributing over $300,000.

Orangizers said the decision to highlight Pitbull, who headlined the day’s musical showcase, was an easy one, considering the artist’s history in the industry and path to stardom.

“He’s one of the great stories in music in the last five or six years. I know what family means to him, and I know that he’s a guy that really stands behind causes. I just hoped he would do it, and he agreed in an instant.”

Pitbull, born Armando Christian Perez, was thrown out of his parental home and spent time with a foster family with whom he never felt fully comfortable.

“Something like this doesn’t come with a whole lot of hard work,” Pitbull said while accepting the award, just moments after finishing his set of hits, including his most recent singles “Fireball” and “Timber.”

“I didn’t grow up with much of a family, so everybody that’s out here enjoying Family Day together, this is what it’s all about. There’s nothing like family.”

The event was hosted by Hilary Duff and also featured performances by Timeflies, Bleachers, Us the Duo and Bea Miller.

The 33-year-old Cuban American rap superstar, who recently released the official music vide for his latest single “Fireball,” has earned a spot on Forbes’ list of the World’s Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Acts, which is compiled from “pretax earnings for living artists whose work is primarily classified as hip-hop or rap.” Earnings include “income from touring, record sales, publishing, merchandise sales, endorsements and other ventures.”

Pitbull comes in at No. 13 on the financial magazine’s Cash Kings list, with a reported haul of $12 million during the reporting period from June 2013 to June 2014.

Along with performing at some 50 concert dates last year, Pitbull also made bank through lucrative endorsement deals for products including Kodak, Dr. Pepper, Voli vodka and Budweiser. He’s also recently announced plans to launch his own Sirius XM channel.

But Pitbull isn’t the only Latino on the list…

Swizz Beatz made $8 million during the same reporting period, landing him at the No. 16 spot on the list.

The 36-year-old half-Puerto Rican hip-hop artist and record producer is considered a rare exception among hip-hop’s top earners because he didn’t tour this year. But he does earn plenty on production and side ventures with the likes of Reebok, Lotus and Monster headphones. Don’t expect him to slow down, either: he’s been taking classes at Harvard Business School to hone his already-sharp financial skills.
