The musician explained that it's important for him to make his music relevant, so he often comes up with new ideas and gets inspiration from a variety of places.
Flo Rida told MTV Voices: "[I'm] always going against the grain, trying new things, different ideas. I mean, just being inspired by different places I travel to, I bring that into my music.
"I'm always reinventing myself and doing things that other people wouldn't and still make it cool."
The rapper – whose real name is Tramar Dillard - also said the reason he's been so successful is because he is willing to work hard as well as knowing the importance of staying grounded.
"[You need to be] as humble as possible [and] definitely [have] a good work ethic," he added.
"When everyone else is sleeping, it's very important that a lot of times, you take the initiative to take the time to work, and work hard, you know? For the most part, I'm always travelling and everything, but I'm always thinking to stay in touch with your fans. I think that's very important."
