This morning, Pitbull sat down with Gayle King on CBS This Morning to talk not about his salacious live shows in casinos, but rather his philanthropy.

Pitbull (née Armando Christian Perez) founded a charter school in Miami called Slam Academy in the Miami neighborhood where he grew up. It’s not a music school, though, it’s about “sports, leadership and management.”
