The good people at X Games have announced that they’ve selected Nicki Minaj to headline their upcoming Summer festival, which begins on June 4th in Austin, Texas.
Last year, it was Kanye West who entertained the crowd, and now the extreme sports organization wants Minaj’s The Pinkprint to be the soundtrack of their event.
This year’s games will host two new sports including Moto X QuarterPipe, and Big Air Doubles which will pair a BMX rider and skateboarder together scoring their combined totals.
X Games VP Tim Reed had this to say about the upcoming festivities, “We are excited to continue featuring the world’s most prestigious athletes and artists on the largest action sports stage here in Austin. As the X Games continues to enhance the spectator experience, showcasing the youth culture and lifestyle elements inherent in action sports, we look forward to adding more world-class musical performances, gaming and interactive elements.”
Watch Nicki along with athletes such as Chase Hawk, Nyjah Huston, Ryan Sheckler, Jimmy Wilkins, Bucky Lasek, and others from June 4th – 7th. Tickets go on sale beginning January 23rd.
