For Throwback Thursday, we bring you....PITBULL.

Miami’s favorite son wasn’t always the GQ man that he is today.

Loooong ago, the rapper, 35, was just another kid running around in a track suit trying to look cool.

We looked through our archives at The Miami Herald and boy did we find some relics.

One especially grabbed our attention: Pitbull, aka Armando Christian Perez, hanging out by the tracks near where he grew up at 25 NE 28th Street, which is now hipsterville. This was 2003 and our guy was just 22. He had a lot to learn about bespoke clothing. But he knows what he is doing now.
