Pitbull - El Mariel

Pitbull released "El Mariel" a few weeks ago. It is much different than his last record, Pit sounds more mature, yet he still has his party tracks on it. I feel like I should have covered this record way more than I did. I have been looking forward to this for quite a while and I he really doesn't get the love he deserves (especially in a November packed with new albums).
On a side note I figured out what "El Mariel" is, it is the the Cuban boat lift that relocated almost 125,000 Cubanos to Florida. Here are some good bits about his new record including a link to his blog on XXL. It is a interesting read, as you would expect.
