Florida is the debut studio album by American hip hop producer Diplo. It was released on Big Dada in 2004.[4] In 2014, it was re-released as F10rida, with 10 extra tracks added, plus bonus commentary.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

Florida was described by Ian Roullier of MusicOMH as "an excellent, diverse collection of instrumental hip hop excursions, laid back grooves and whacked out rap tracks."[2] Tim O'Neil of PopMatters said, "Diplo has crafted one of the year's best debut albums, an ambitious ode to the art and craft of sampling."[4]
