Although snubbed by the BET Awards, Nicki Minaj is still winning. The Young Money rapper kicked off the first NBA Awards show with a performance of her many hits.
Performing hits like her collaboration with 2 Chainz “Realize,” her verse on the Pretty Girls Like Trap Music track, “No Frauds” and her Katy Perry collaboration “Swish Swish,” the queen of rap graced the stage in all her glory.
In addition to her NBA performance, Onika Tanya Maraj was presented with the key to Queens, New York for her “outstanding career achievements in music” from Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.
Due to the performance at the NBA Awards, Minaj wasn’t there to accept.
