Nicki Minaj to Headline X Games

Pinkprint rapper will appear at ESPN's annual event.

Published January 21, 2015

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.
