Flo Rida Not Ridin' With Chris Brown For His Next Single

Flo Rida, Carol City's muscle-bound rapper and supporter of Floridians wearing "boots with the furrr," is apparently not so hot on appearing on tracks with guys who (allegedly) beat their pop star girlfriend. The (alleged) song is called "Sweat" and though it's been bubbling on the 'net for a few weeks now, Mr. Rida won't be releasing it as his next single. He (allegedly) told Contact Music: "I recorded a

great song with Chris. But I won't be releasing it now because of

what's going on with him and Rihanna. It could have been my next No1." Dammit Chris, now we'll never know what kind of weather-inappropriate footwear to rock this summer.

Listen to the song here.

Update: Flo told - not us, never us - that C. Breezy's legal issues have nothing to do with his reason for deciding not to release "Sweat." Even though the quote mentioned Rihanna specifically he says, "I think someone must have got it twisted."

Yeah, you.

"The thing was, we have deadlines to meet and between his business [ed. He means Brown's court dates, not the bitchbeating.] and my business [ed. He means the rapping.], things were -- we had to turn an album, so I had to really get everything together."

Uh huh. Oh really?

"It's not just that record, there were other records that couldn't make the album that I wanted to make the album as well..."

Which other records? "Smoke Dat" featuring Ice Phelps? Or "Money Aint a Thng 2009" featuring B. Madoff? 

"...but that was the process -- this was way before me ever hearing anything about [Brown allegedly beating Rihanna]. This was way before, at least a month. I had been done with this record."

He said he been done with it. For a month. OK?
