    Pitbull's most mainstream work can be viewed as misogynistic, lacking in craft and heavily reliant on party vibes but it should be remembered that he himself has not claimed to be a rapper or MC and therefore the record is purely a reflection of America's hugely influential club scene. The record tries to be unique but it wants to be fun and sexy even if substance is lacking.

The record tries to be unique but it wants to be fun and sexy even if substance is lacking. Isn't that what the American party scene is all about? Fake boobs and desperate acts of sexual promiscuity. When I listen to this record that is the image I have. 'I Know You Want Me' is the standout track and has since become a global cashcow for the publishers. 9/10 87/100 Expand

    The lyrics are one-track sexist, but I can't stop listening to the CD. Whatever he's doing, he's doing it right. I feel guilty for how much I'm loving this CD.

  1. Even if it's not the most persuasive mood album, once the party has kicked into high gear Rebelution will certainly keep it going.
  2. If you ignore those gratuitous lyrics, though, you'll find Pitbull's catchiest set yet.
  3. With Rebelution, Pitbull's filled a rakish niche in pop-rap.
