Nicki Minaj is about to get extreme.
Still pushing her Pinkprint album, Nicki has been chosen to headline this summer's X-Games, from June 4-7 in Austin, Texas, according to her Instagram account.
“I look forward to channeling the energy and spirit from the X Games into a performance Austin will not forget,” Minaj told The Wrap.
Minaj's X-Games appearance continues the wave of superstar rappers playing ESPN's annual event, as Kanye West headlined it last year. The X-Games showcase extreme sports such as moto-cross motorcycle racing, BMX biking and skateboarding, to name a few. Maybe Minaj will bring Lil Wayne. After all, the Young Money boss does love skateboarding.
Tickets for the X-Games go on sale this Friday.
