Let the EGOTing begin.

Recent Grammy winner for Best Rap Album Cardi B will make her feature film debut in the upcoming Hustlers, per a report from Deadline Tuesday. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the film is inspired by a 2016 article from the New York Times centered on a team of former strip club workers who take on their Wall Street clients. Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Mercedes Ruehl, Trace Lysette, and Lili Reinhart also star.

Shooting is expected to begin March 22 on the STXfilms co-production in New York City. In a statement Tuesday, STX chairperson Adam Fogelson said the team was "grateful" to have put together a "powerhouse cast" representing a "dynamic group of women."

Cardi and J. Lo previously linked with DJ Khaled on last year's "Dinero," the Joseph Kan-directed video for which you can revisit below:
