Rappers Cardi B and Travis Scott will headline JAY-Z’s Made In America music festival during Labor Day weekend. The announcement was made on the festival’s official Twitter page Tuesday afternoon.
We guess this means there are no hard feelings between HOVA and Scott. Many fans and fellow celebrities expressed frustration with the 27-year old’s decision to perform at Super Bowl LIII, a gig that both Cardi and Mr. Carter turned down in support of Colin Kaepernick.
This will be the ‘Money Bag’ rapper’s second appearance at Made in America. In 2017 she was a late addition to the show and was only given a small segment featuring her hit single ‘Bodak Yellow.’
Glowing up from last minute guest to headliner of a major event is yet another example of the stripper-turned-reality-star-turned-international-sensation’s fast-growing career.
31 other acts were announced including alternative rapper Juice WRLD, UK soul artist James Blake, Florida rapper Kodak Black, and on-the-rise R&B sensation Jorja Smith. Given the festival is hosted over two 10-hour days, it is likely that many more artists and groups will join the lineup. Kendrick Lamar was attached to last year’s festival only a few weeks before the event started.
