Lu and his brother started their search for the right candidate in Miami.  One fateful day Lu met a very charismatic young man during a mixing session for Luther Campbell (Uncle Luke of the 2 Live Crew). Thinking this young man was an intern at the studio, it led to an involved conversation with the young man, who pointed out that the track Lu was mixing was his. Shocked not only at the quality of the rapper, but the charisma of young man, he quickly realized this was the artist they’d been looking for.  Lu extended an offer that if the rapper was ever freed from his contract at Luke Records, he should give The Diaz Brothers a call.  A few months later he did just that, that young man’s name is Pitbull,  and as they say “The Rest Is History”.  Their unification sky-rocketed both the rapper and the production duo to worldwide fame.  Lu and his brother served as Executive Producers and Music Producers for Pitbull’s debut album titled M.I.A.M.I. (Money is a major issue) which was released on their Diaz Brothers Music Group label distributed by TVT Records.
