The rapper was honored for being a staunch education advocate. “I remember being kicked out of a public school because I didn’t have the right address,” Pitbull said during the presentation. “That’s why I want better schools for the kids who live where I grew up. That’s why Doral Academy was founded, and that’s why I helped create SLAM — it stands for Sports Leadership And Management — in the neighborhood where I grew up.” Say what you like about him but the “Timber” hitmaker keeps on winning. See his hilarious social media updates after the jump.
