The dynamic duo performed a rendition of "Realize," "No Frauds" and Minaj's verse from Katy Perry’s "Swish Swish."

Nicki Minaj and 2 Chainz took audience members on a Gods- and Goddess-inspired trip during their performance at the first-ever NBA Awards in New York City on Monday. The performance came complete with stone pillars, elaborate headdresses and the Queen Barb being carried out by strapping gents. 

The dynamic duo kept it mellow during their televised set with a rendition of 2 Chainz’s “Realize,” which was followed by Minaj’s stirring-yet-amended version of “No Frauds” and her verse from Katy Perry’s aptly titled “Swish Swish.” 

The Queens MC, who recently received the key to her hometown, wore a long pink wig and an all-white ensemble featuring thigh-high boots.

She told fans to tune in to the performance last month, amidst the tension brewing between her and fellow NYC femcee Remy Ma. She stated that the NBA Awards, hosted by Young Money cohort Drake, would be the only awards show she’ll be attending in June.
