Pitbull
Breakout Year

Cuban-American rapper Armando Christian Pérez, 30, known professionally as Pitbull and Mr. 305 (as in Miami's area code), had the breakout year he's longed for with chart hits from Russia to Canada. The year began with "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)," "Krazy" and "Hotel Room Service" and ended with the album "Armando" at No. 22, as of December, on Amazon's Latin Music best sellers list. And Calle Ocho did, indeed, want him. He was named the "king" of Miami's annual street festival in 2010.

How much do you get into Halloween?

  • I'm into it - parties, decorating, theme parks, whatever I can fit in
  • I just participate for the kids
  • Boo - I keep the lights off to avoid trick-or-treaters
