  • Flo Rida didn't waste any time getting on his hip-hop grind as a teen, starting his career as a member of the rap crew the Groundhoggz. In addition to picking up some practice in the rap game, the "Elevator" rapper also developed an important part of his persona: his moniker.

    "When I was 17, to be a part of a group like the Groundhoggz, you definitely have to come up with a name," the MC recalled on the latest episode of "When I Was 17." "At first, I was going by the name of Ruckus Pimp. I just thought that was like a little bit out there, so I went to over to my boy's house. He's just like, 'Man, we got to come up with a name today.'"

    The MC explained that he and his homie put their heads together to come up with a tag. The rapper eventually thought of a handle inspired by his southern roots.

    "So, OK, I sat up there for about an hour and finally, it hit me," he says. "Take Florida, break it in half and there you go: Flo Rida."

    Flo Rida has managed to float between Hip-Hop and Pop with ease and its sold him a bunch of records in the process. Read AllHipHop.com's new interview with Flo Rida below!

    Time and time again, Flo Rida has proven that he has "the Midas touch." In spite of the music industry's ballyhooed downward spiral, Flo has sold more than 10 million digital copies of his popular club anthems over the past three years. For this reason, he has firmly supplanted himself as the undisputed "King of the Club."

    From "Low" to "Right Round," in addition to a string of guest appearances, Tramar "Flo Rida" Dillard has crafted a sonic style that is immediately recognizable, memorable and unique. And with the release of his third studio album (on November 30, 2010), he is resolute in his reminder to the world: "there is Only One Flo."

    Upon the release of the album's lead single, "Club Can't Handle Me," Flo Rida managed to squeeze some time out of his busy schedule and settle down for an interview with Clayton Perry – reflecting on his formative years in Las Vegas, the importance of "connecting" with fans, and his professional relationship with Walt Disney Studios.

    AllHipHop.com: Although you were born-and-raised in Florida, you also spent a great deal of time in Vegas, as well. In what ways have those two regions influenced and affected the direction of your career?

    Flo Rida: Living in Vegas has definitely exposed me to an international audience because people around the world travel to Vegas
