The performance was kicked off by the atlanta rapper spitting the lyrics while Nicki Minaj made a grand entrance on the stage being carried by some very rip men. The Young Money rapper then performed her smash hit single “No Frauds” withe an Egyptian themed set made of dancers in gold outfits.
The first annual NBA Awards is being hosted by Nicki Minaj labelmate Drake so you can see the connection. Both Nicki Minaj and Drake are having a great year breaking a lot of records in the music industry and raising the bars for their pairs higher. Nicki is currently working on her new album due this year and Drizzy released the second biggest debut this year with his More Life playlist selling over half a million copies in the first week alone.

Drake is a funny guy, great timing. When he turns to acting, he'll have a lot of success. Nicki Minaj though? That was trash. ? #NBAAwards
