Flo Rida Encourages Kids to 'Dream Big' Year Round
By Maggie Coughlan Posted Dec 15th 2010 12:33PM
It may be hard to believe, but the man who made "apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur" part of our cultural lexicon is far more concerned with philanthropy than he is with what women wear to the club. The rapper's foundation, Big Dreams for Kids, works to provide support for kids in need, offering everything from toys to turkeys to the less fortunate during the holiday season.
"Growing up as a little kid in the projects, I had different celebrities come out, and talk to the kids, and I was one of them, and it just was instilled in me that if you dream big, it's not where you're from, it's how you represent," he told PopEater.
PopEater caught up with Flo Rida to talk about what he listens to before he hits the club, working with Lady Gaga and how he'll be ringing in the new year. Watch the interview after the jump!
