Born Tramar Dillard, Flo Rida was raised by a single mother in Miami’s rough neighborhood of Carol City, Florida, but music helped him stay on the straight path. His father was a talented musician who encouraged his son to express himself through music. Growing up, Flo Rida was exposed to all kinds of music, thanks in large part to his sisters, some of whom formed a local gospel group. When he was a teenager, Flo Rida found local success rapping with a local group, Groundhoggz. At 18, he become the hype man for Fresh Kid Ice from 2 Live Crew. Eventually, Flo Ride caught the attention of DeVante Swing and spent a few years in Los Angeles working with him. Flo Rida returned home to Miami in late 2006 and hooked up with Poe Boy Entertainment and its CEO, Eric “E-Class” Prince.

That same year Flo Rida inked a deal with Atlantic Records and in 2009 started his own management company, Strong Arm, with longtime friend and manager, Lee “Freezy” Prince. This collaboration led to five successful album releases, resulting in numerous Billboard Top 10 hits including “Right Round” (with Ke$ha), “Club Can’t Handle Me”, “Good Feeling”, “Wild Ones” and “Whistle”.

“The response to this music genre was remarkable last year.” says Fair Manager Ron Jeffries. “Our goal has always been for the Central States Fair to entertain the entire community and we’re excited to appeal to the Hip Hop audience again with Flo Rida.”

VIP, Premier and Grandstand passes for Flo Rida and all grandstand events go on sale May 31st. Individual concert tickets will also be available.
