Flo Rida did his part for Thanksgiving.

The local rapper represented the 305 as well as the MusiCares Foundation Tuesday at a special event at the Recovery Unplugged Treatment Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Established in 1989 by The Recording Academy, MusiCares provides a safety net of assistance for those in the industry.

The always energetic Grammy nominee linked up with songwriter/guitarist Richie Supa, who has collaborated with Aerosmith, to belt out such hits as “I Cry” and “Good Feeling.” Supa later did the title track from his recent recovery-themed album, “Enemy.”

Flo Rida also discussed his uphill climb as a musician and how he could have benefited from MusiCares' resources when he was a struggling musician in his hometown of Carol City.
