Pitbull admits his music ''isn't brilliant''.

The 31-year-old rapper - whose real name is Armando Pirez - wouldn't be a fan of his own work if he were younger, but thinks his true ''brilliance'' will be appreciated in years to come.

He said: ''If I was younger, I'd think it was some bulls**t. The music isn't brilliant.

''Where I come from Miami, it's a melting pot. I make global music - that's my genre. I'll eat that label.

''People don't understand brilliance until after the fact - which happens with all artists, whether that's Picasso, Michelangelo, Van Gogh.''

Pitbull began dealing drugs when he was just 15 years old, and after giving up a few years later, applied everything he had learned from working on the streets to his music career.

He told Q magazine: ''I took the mentality of everything I was doing on the street and applied it to music. It's hustle. All you're doing is moving a product.

''It's almost like the '48 Laws Of Power'. I never read the whole book, I only read the Cliffs notes, but those 48 laws can either manipulate you to be a really good person or a really bad person. It can teach you to be a snake or a gentleman.

''The guys I looked up to were gentlemen. I took the gentleman route.''
