Baltimore hip-hop station 92Q has succeeded where the NFL failed, enlisting hip-hop queen Cardi B to perform at the station’s upcoming hip-hop festival downtown in May.

The station announced Cardi B yesterday as the headliner for its Spring Bling Festival, set for May 24 at Royal Farms Arena. Joining the Bronx-raised, Grammy-nominated rapper will be a cast of Memphis artists led by Yo Gotti–also including BlocBoy JB, MoneyBagg Yo and Blac Youngsta–along with Charlotte rapper DaBaby.
