"Armando Christian Pérez, a.k.a. the pop mogul Pitbull, is in a sixth-floor classroom of Sports Leadership and Management. It’s a new charter school he is supporting just outside the rough Little Havana neighborhood where he was raised." Sigh. Now if we could only associate each "rough Little Havana neighborrhood" with a pop star, we're all set.
