Entertainment executive Kevin Liles keeps the music industry’s hottest performers on speed dial, especially those he works with. The Baltimore-bred music mogul reached out to a headlining “hot girl,” when he was thinking about creating something special and exciting for his hometown’s premiere horse racing and music event. “I called my girl Megan Thee Stallion and said, ‘Meg, you’re the Stallion, you have to do Preakness for me,’” said Liles, recounting how he asked the Grammy-winning rapper, who is signed to one of the labels he oversees, to join the festival.
