About

Mr. Worldwide refers to the self-ascribed nickname of American rapper and music producer Pitbull. The name has appeared in a variety of memes, which use the title ironically to mock Pitbull's jet-setting playboy persona.

Origin

"Mr. Worldwide" comes from one of the nicknames that Pitbull has for himself. Originally calling himself "Mr. 305," a reference to his area code in his hometown of Miami, Fl, Pitbull has been using the moniker since at least 2010, when he released the mixtape Mr. Worldwide on April 20th.[1][2][3] On June 17th, 2011 Pitbull released the album Planet Pit, which included the song "Mr. Worldwide" (shown below).
