Tune in and turn up

At the first-ever NBA Awards Monday night, Nicki Minaj and 2 Chainz linked up for a performance of “Realize” from 2 Chainz’ brand new Pretty Girls Like Trap Music album.

Nicki then continued on with a medley of her recent hits – the Remy Ma diss “No Frauds” and a solo version of the Katy Perry track she features on, “Swish Swish.” Check out the full performance below, where she channels Ancient Greek vibes, and reclines on a throne held by a quartet of muscular men like the queen she is.

Although Remy Ma broke Minaj’s seven year Best Female Hip Hop Artist streak at Sunday night’s BET awards, Queen Minaj is still riding high. Prior to her NBA Awards performance, she was awarded the key to the city in her hometown of Queens, NY for her “outstanding career achievements in music.”
