The biggest Hispanic festival in the nation is paying tribute to a leader in Spanish Hip-Hop.

Cuban American rapper Pitbull has been named the king of the annual Carnaval festival’s biggest bash.

Carnaval festival takes place in Miami from February 27-March 14 and includes contests, tournaments, arts and jazz concerts.

Pitbull will take his crown during the festival’s finale bash Calle Ocho on March 14.

The popular block party will have food, performances, music and of course dancing.

Speaking on the esteemed honor of being King for a day in a press conference, Pitbull says that he feels a “tremendous source of pride.”

“For me, a Miami kid raised in Little Havana, it’s a tremendous source of pride to be here because [Carnaval Miami] shows the unity of the cultures that come here.”
