Following a lawsuit against Pitbull's production company, PDR Productions, Inc., over disclosure of his contract with Visit Florida earlier this week, the Miami-born rapper took to Twitter to release his million-dollar contract with the tourism company. 

Mr. 305 shared details of the contract saying, "It's been an honor to represent Miami and the Sunshine State" -- after House Speaker Richard Corcoran filed the lawsuit, claiming Pit's contract with Visit Florida contained "trade secrets" on Monday. 

"I've taken Miami and Florida worldwide -- way before any contract, and will do so way after. I love my home state. When asked to take on a New Year's show, I insisted it be live from Florida. #LOVEFL since birth and till I die. Dale!" 

According to the legal documents, the Latin Grammy and Grammy award-winning artist was paid $1 million dollars to promote Florida.

The deal included the music video "Sexy Beaches," which featured footage of Florida beaches, social media promotion using the hashtag #LoveFL and a video series promoting the state, among other things (detailed in the contract). The deal covered the period from July 2015 to June 2016.

Pitbull's third annual New Year's Eve Revolution returns this year with hosts Snoop Dogg and Queen Latifah. The show will broadcast live on Dec. 31 from Miami on FOX.
