Nicki Minaj To Perform At NBA Awards

( 4MF NEWS ) Nicki Minaj To Perform At NBA Awards:

Nicki Minaj is paying tribute to the boys.

The rapper will host the first-ever official annual NBA Award show with host Drake, whom she's been romantically linked to for years, on TNT in June in New York City.

"Performing @ the 1st ever #NBAAwards, hosted by Drake ~ June 26th on TNT ?? #SwishSwishBish," Minaj wrote on Twitter Thursday.

In addition to Drake's hosting chops, the "Inside the NBA" studio team of Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O'Neal, will also lend a hand for the event.

Awards that will be handed out include Kia's NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Most Improved Player and NBA Coach of the Year.

Minaj and Drake, who have had their fair share of drama in the past, recently rekindled after the "Black Barbies" singer's split from rapper Meek Mill.

"Nicki Minaj, I'm so glad we found our way back because I love you," Drake said at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. "And I could never ever ever see it any other way."
