Abstract: A microscopic accounting of the entropy of a generic 5D supersymmetric rotating black hole, arising from wrapped \(M2\)-branes in Calabi-Yau compactified \(M\)-theory, is an outstanding unsolved problem. In this paper we consider an expansion around the zero-entropy, zero-temperature, maximally rotating ground state for which the angular momentum \(J_L\) and graviphoton charge \(Q\) are related by \({J_L}^2 = Q^3\). At \(J_L = 0\) the near horizon geometry is \(AdS_2 × S^3\). As \({J_L}^2 → Q^3\) it becomes a singular quotient of \(AdS_3 × S^2\): more precisely, a quotient of the near horizon geometry of an \(M5\) wrapped on a 4-cycle whose self-intersection is the 2-cycle associated to the wrapped-\(M2\) black hole. The singularity of the \(AdS_3\) quotient is identified as the usual one associated to the zero-temperature limit, suggesting that the (0,4) wrapped-\(M5\) CFT is dual near maximality to the wrapped-\(M2\) black hole. As evidence for this, the microscopic (0,4) CFT entropy and the macroscopic rotating black hole entropy are found to agree to leading order away from maximality.
