Tramar Dillard (lahir 17 September 1979; umur 35 tahun) atau lebih dikenal sebagai Flo Rida adalah rapper asal Amerika Serikat. Lahir di Opa-locka, Florida, nama panggung "Flo Rida" diambil dari nama negara bagian tempatnya berasal. Dibesarkan di Carol City, dia masih berusia 15 tahun ketika menjadi pengikut grup rap 2 Live Crew.[1][2]

Namanya mulai dikenal dalam sejumlah mixtape, terutama lagu "Bitch I'm from Dade County" dalam album We the Best oleh DJ Khaled yang dibuatnya setelah dikontrak Poe Boy Entertainment. Album solo perdana, Mail on Sunday menghasilkan singel "Low" yang menempati urutan nomor satu Billboard Hot 100 pada awal tahun 2008.[2]

Biografi[sunting | sunting sumber]

Sewaktu masih berusia 16 tahun, Flo Rida mengikuti kakak ipar yang menjadi hype man (vokal latar) bagi Luke Skyywalker dari 2 Live Crew. Skyywalker melihat bakat terpendam Flo Rida, dan memintanya menjadi anggota magang bagi 2 Live Crew. Sambil magang, Flo Rida membentuk grup rap amatir, Groundhoggz bersama dua orang teman masa kecilnya.

Pada tahun 2001, Flo Rida diajak Fresh Kid Ice sebagai hype man baginya dalam tur ke Hawaii. Sebelum berangkat, ia sempat merekam pita demo yang menarik perhatian DeVante, mantan anggota Jodeci. Devante memperkenalkan Flo Rida kepada tokoh-tokoh industri musik hip hop dan label mayor. Namun Flo Rida belum beruntung dan harus bekerja sambilan di luar bidang musik. Ia sempat kuliah di Universitas Las Vegas selama seminggu, dan kuliah di Universitas Barry selama dua bulan tapi berhenti. Sekembalinya di Florida, karier bermusik kembali dilanjutkannya setelah ditelepon pihak label indie Poe Boy Entertainment.[1]

Setelah Poe Boy Entertainment mengontraknya pada tahun 2007, Flo Rida mulai berkawan dengan rapper lain dari Florida, seperti Rick Ross, Trina, dan Trick Daddy. Sebelum ikut dalam album We the Best, Flo Rida merilis singel promosi berjudul "Birthday" yang menampilkan Rick Ross. Singel "Low" yang menampilkan T-Pain menjadi lagu hit sekaligus lagu paling banyak diunduh dari toko web iTunes pada bulan November 2007,[3][4] dan berhasil mencapai urutan pertama Billboard Hot 100.[5]
