It ain't easy being Flo Rida, but it's gotta be a "Good Feeling."

And the positive vibes just keep flowing for the Carol City pop-hopper. Like, say, scoring the cover of New Times' Miami People 2012.

Dude's a front-page stud. A dance rap phenom. A chart crusher.

As we point out in this week's People Issue, Flo's had "four-song string of Billboard number one house-hop hits [over the last five years] -- 2012's 'Whistle,' 2011's 'Good Feeling,' 2009's 'Right Round,' and the aforementioned 'Low' -- that's proven the 32-year-old rapper to be one of Planet Earth's most bankable pop stars."

He's got fans in Okinawa. A 24-karat gold, diamond-encrusted Jesus over his heart. And the keys to the International Music Group empire.

Like Mr. Rida himself has said: "Oh, no. I can't stop. I was destined."
