Nicki Minaj To Perform At First Ever NBA Awards

Published: Thursday 25th May 2017 by Sam

Nicki Minaj only just rocked the Billboard Music Awards with a 9-minute opener, but she’s already making a beeline for another major stage.

Moments ago on Twitter, the Hip-Hop queen announced that she’ll be performing at the first ever NBA Awards.

The show, which airs June 26th live on TNT, is being hosted by Onika’s Young Money comrade Drake.

No word yet on what the diva will be performing, but it’s worth noting that she did hashtag her announcement entry with #SwishSwish – which is, of course, the title of her new song with Katy Perry.

As to where this sits in the grand scheme of Minaj’s upcoming album release remains to be seen. Although, multiple sources have informed That Grape Juice that the as yet untitled set is slated for a Fall arrival.

If indeed the case, it would appear that – between features and performances – Nicki plans to stay in the mix of things all-year long. Literally.

    Queen Nic’ | I have to admit I am a little concerned for this era considering that the hype ain’t where I’d like it to be. But I’m excited to see how things unfold. She’s a great artist and #TheKingdom is always there to support.

    Luckily for the NBA her music is only Pop-Rap brought to y’all by Lil’Kim style. Tricki Garbagh is a FRAUD!! I said it before….✌??

    Yall need to stop calling her the hip hop queen, b**** ain’t the Queen. Hip-hop doesn’t even own this chick anymore, and what songs is she performing? Cause I ain’t been hearing s*** on the radio….???

    Honestly speaking, Iggy Azalea been putting out better music than this b****,
    But that’s the kind of messed up country we live in, yall should be sending condolences out to the victims of that attack at the Ariana concert, this is sickening, cause instead yall on here praising this arrogant, overrated, fake bodied hood rat with money….it’s ashame???

      • Hip hop is real May 26, 2017

        Naw, apologize for??? I told the truth, yall are so obsessed over a pair fake breast & Ass, it’s pathetic. Because like I said the chick Minaj, hasn’t even been putting out any GOOD music as of lately. And right now, there is a bigger situation happening involving children who lives were lost, focus on that. Nicki Minaj is NOT that important. Frfr

    I don’t won’t to see warm up exercise dance moves from Nicki Garblechhh. We need a entertainer who puts on a GREAT memorable show. I guess Bruno Mars was too expensive.
