WATCH: Heads turn when Nicki Minaj take to the stage at the NBA Awards

While the rest of the industry was out in Cali getting ratchet and scrapping at BET Awards, Nicki Minaj was making her way to NYC’s Pier 36 in preparation for her live performance at the 2017 NBA Awards honoring some of Sports biggest stars. Watch as she hits the stage to tackle a medley of ‘No Frauds’, ‘Swish Swish’, and ‘Realize’ featuring 2 Chainz.

    Nicki is the shit idgaf what nobody say #M’s #Bitch

  • Jstaar Jay

    The monotony 😩😩😭

  • Alisha

    Nicki’s music career is slowly coming to an end. Oh and I was saying this BEFORE Remy Ma dissed her. I was saying the shit when she was in the Barber Shop 3 and these Verizon commercials. I was saying it when Safaree was on LHHH last season. All she need is a newer younger MC to come about and take her place which will happen 🤷🏾‍♀️

    Everyone in these comments are obviously dick riding Remy Ma. Just because y’all never liked her from the gate! And have been waiting for someone to come for her. So y’all can make it seem like Nicki’s whack and is takin L’s but in all reality of all y’all bullshit ass opinion Nicki’s at the top of the hot 100 Billboard charts just passed Missy Elliot for best female rap artist WITHOUT SAFERREE!!! (SHE WRITES HER OWN MUSIC SAFERREE gave her advice when she asked of him) Another fatass receipt I bet that none of you hating ass mofos know not one or heard of any of this Remy Ma persons songs besides All the way up with Fat Joe. Name one please I’ll wait…… Because I’ve never heard of her nor heard her music on the radio (EVEN BEFORE SHE WENT TO PRISON) nobody talks about Remy Ma never! She a nobody I grew up on Nicki’s music im just gone be solid I know all her songs that I like and that play on the radio. Y’all some fake ass Remy Ma fans by default it’s disgusting literally all because y’all hate Nicki and she doing her dam JOb and just being herself. Y’all sick. This performance was lit I was rocking, dancing, singing & all into the video as soon as she came on stag because her stag presence is always loud. Her vocal were fine she is just doing the NBA awards so she had to bleep out the curse words to keep it professional for the establishment. Like Muthafuckas is dum AF! If you don’t like Nicki don’t click that video or link and pay her no mind then keep the fake and fuckery to your self dummy.. You did it to yourself I don’t care for Remy I don’t watch none of her shit she wack af and I still haven’t heard her diss to Nicki but that No frauds is lit it s fire and it’s on the radio stupid!!! That should tell you something! And fuck the crowd the acted how they wanted to act not ratchet and professional stfu and and stay off her shit. Like Nicki said on Still I Rise….Real Bitches listen when Im speaking!!!! FOH

  • Andrea Berryhill

    WTF Did I just watch? 😂😂😂

  • NotNiceImRude

    I didnt see one head turn, the only turning that was involved with this performance was turning this BS off. #AreYouDumb #TeamRemy

  • ZionLive

    What was 3chainz talking about? 😂 Ah man….. it’s all gone fucking downhill. It’s like nobody says anything that makes sense anymore and it will sell! Fuck this shit ima become a rapper.

    Why was nobody getting up or anything 🤔🥂 no chacha no nada 😆🤦🏾‍♀️

  • Renee Jones

    What the FUCK was that. I wasted minutes on my late break and to see how dumm this shit is…. makes me mad girl. Sit the fuck down and just enjoy NAS. Nothing else is happened wit yo

  • Haile Lamar

    Right like she skipped the papoose line…. this bitch is corny

  • Haile Lamar

    Right??? She keeps acting oblivious this chick is straight PUSSY 😂😂

  • Jamonie Lee

    2chainz did a great job I enjoyed that part

  • Jamonie Lee

    Where is roman revenge nicki? 🤦🏾‍♀️ This Nicki is a pop singer now? And still acts like a animation character 🤦🏾‍♀️ #clueless im over her she’s boring just like this dry performance, and who’s apart of young money still? Give me a break she needs to re-event herself #animation is for kids
    👋🏾go home Rodger

  • Justine .MD

    i like nicki but this performance… Dry like the Sahara.

  • Yerp!

    omg horrible. she aint bout that life. thats appparent

  • Yerp!

    wack. nicki dont need to sing. stop it

  • Kay

    She ain’t sell me on that “diss” lines 😒🤦🏿‍♂️ Thought it was fire like some y’all be claiming but it sucked and meant nothing 😂

  • futuresomething

    The performance is dry because none of these songs have that draw like her old songs. She needs to make peace with Safari or however his spell his name so he can write her music again.

  • Alejandra Carolina Fina Maltez

    Dry ass performance

  • Realbihhfirst


  • Santana

    Right! I only listened to the first song cause I fucks with 2 chainz!

  • I miss the “Banji Nicki Minaj” .. performance was cute; but I expected a little “Bad & Boujee” with this performance.

    Come on Nicki; I’m rooting for you!

  • champz

    this whole performance reminded me of beyonce soo she copying again? the back ground images and the dancers outfits too familiar but these songs are trash she is obsessed with rely, ma put at 1 song it took her a month to reply and now she won’t stop like grow up already

  • RoyalMrs

    Now Nicki you could have kept that shit😆😆😆🤣🤣🤣🤣 guuuhhhhh bye.. I’m not here for it … that’s sad as hell nothing you rap/sing could ever top Remy just be a pop star and move on hell!

  • Fia Brown

    Is it just me or does it look like she was lip synching every song but the last? Nicely choreographed though

  • Reina1718

    He hosted the show lol

  • Candice Henderson

    I while heartedly believe if Nikki and Meek got back together, he MAY improve her career… Maybe 😕

  • Such A Baddie

    👏🏽 Yes!

  • Candice Henderson

    WTF was that! Nikki needs to go hope her ass back in that bunkbed she shares with Birdman and take a fukkin nap.

  • Kamo Brinson

    Her butt ain’t no better,😝
    And neither was her challenge😩..I’m over it to..slick been over it..

  • Skittlez Barbie

    He was? Smh he know he should have helped her. They would have been excited to see him.

  • 2 Chainz got bars… That’s all I got!

  • Such A Baddie

    Well he’s the obvious missing link in “her” music lol

  • Such A Baddie


  • Lanegra💃🏽

    Issa no for me

  • Reina1718

    They had no one to choose from, its never been real competition

  • Reina1718

    & she kno ppl tired of her & wants to see other female rappers

  • Reina1718


  • Reina1718

    She has to show her looks thats basically all she has

  • Reina1718

    Drake was there y didnt he say his part? Lol

  • Reina1718

    Yes like meet me outside again ima win this time watch watch lol

  • Reina1718

    U mean safari lol

  • Reina1718

    Yeah she not humble she seems so extra now, so fake & boast so much like this what i have & this what u dont have

  • Tinisha MrsHarper Sutphin


  • Jalessa Blu Smith

    That girl is literally that plastic she can’t even move to the beat! Lmao!!

  • She has zero stage presence

  • Dean

    Omg this was whack.

  • Such A Baddie

    Honey yes! She needs to bring one of her multiple personalities back, because “pop” Nicki is boring me and “beef” Nicki is pitiful. Remy killed you, just take the L and move on..she still running her mouth! That’s like a Bish who got her azz beat still talking ish…she didn’t learn her lesson from Ether? I’ve said it several times, while I haven’t ever had any plastic surgery myself, I’m all for it (not back alley, hotel/motel, underground) but done by a licensed professional. But I also just don’t see why these celebs f*ck up their faces or bodies. They have to look in the mirror and see it doesn’t look good! I ♥️ Lil Kim down, but her face is a problem. Plastic surgery is suppose to enhance and improve, not make you look worse.

  • Da1stBitch

    I expected fire 🔥 and then closed the video half way through 🙄😪

  • Such A Baddie

    Usually when people get a nose job their nose is too big and they want it smaller…what bothers me about nicki’s is from the front it’s like they shaved down the bone and there’s like no cartilage so it’s just flat, but then it’s long (why didn’t they shave off/round the tip?) and from the side profiles its long and skinny…it’s like she coulda kept her original nose I’m sure it looked better than now. I also notice with nose jobs, people get multiple revisions and it still doesn’t fix it, it just makes it worse! 😭 I think the internet and social media gives bored, boring and Lil kids who have nothing going on, something to do… who has time to sit around and re make a “jet challenge? ” not me, I got bills to pay and ish. I’m over this “viral trend” too.

  • (((((YEP I SAID IT)))))


  • YoungFabulous

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz boring ass performer. She don’t even know how to bop to her own music. She just stand still holding the mic and walk back and forth. Cardi B BET performance was better than this garbage.

  • Kamo Brinson

    Ikr…she ain’t gone have a nose she keep on..I think everytime I see her,it gets smaller and smaller….
    And yea she had help.don’t know why frauds i meant ppl afraid to admit things like that but okay..😒..
    She did that jet challenge/like the bowwow lil thing and her career bout to be exposed just like his..

  • Kamo Brinson

    …dang say she blocked ya..ohh she so bothered..😂😂
    #Remy #kay

  • mawedo

    To be honest it was so boring for me to watch, I kept fast forwarding it to see if there’s anything spectacular 😏

  • SexiiSag

    You can tell Nicki tried to dress like Cardi B too… Look at the comparisons from Nicki at the NBA Awards and Cardi at the BET Awards!! Sad…

  • SexiiSag

    Cardi B did a better job at the BET Awards than this mess… Cardi B is on the rise baby!!!! Finally sonebody putting Nicki to rest!!!

  • Kay

    Lmaooo I’m actually rolling over this comment! “She needa summon one of her alter egos like Roman, Martha or Nicki Lewinski” 😂😂 you ain’t lying! And they need to stop getting surgery on their face. It never comes out right. Even Kylie looks like a crazy duck!

  • Kay

    Lmao seriously. She should ask Wayne to speak to Phat Joe and ask him to pass on the message to end the beef. Either that or she’s gonna keep taking Ls!

  • Kay


  • Kay


  • Kay

    Lmao you ain’t lying! 🙌🏾🙌🏾😂

  • Kamo Brinson

    😲😨…well ummm.😧A for effort..
    It was cute or wheteva..

    ….the playing with the hair thing is sooo Rachett like,😩we get it u have inches..
    I’m guessing she kept opening her legs to hype the crowd or sumn🤔eather way it was tacky…
    2 chains is 2 lame at this point,..🙋
    I mean did that audience have a “applause ” prompt??🤔
    Nicki slick need safari shade no no no no shade(nicki vc)
    She was trashy before a lil..but now she dumbster juice..

    ..I miss the way back way back…
    🎵🎤u got spunk baby u got spunk,baby u got something all tha girls want,
    U like a candy stoore& I’m a tide low
    U got me wanting mooo,&ma more of..

  • Annette Holloway


  • Such A Baddie

    She’s won that award multiple times….it’s time for another rap chick to get some shine too. Now that Nicki’s not with Safaree her music definitely reflects that they’re no longer together.

  • Such A Baddie

    I so read that in Randy Jackson’s voice 😹

  • Such A Baddie

    Yes! It was so awkward. Clearly the barbs were not in attendance. I didn’t like the performance particularly, but this reminded me of a video I saw a few weeks ago of desinger performing his song Panda…people were just standing there…it was crickets. That song just makes you wanna turn up, but that crowd wasnt there for it 😭

  • Such A Baddie

    Look at pics or vids it’s very noticeable in side profiles as well it’s just flat but then pointy like a witch 😞

  • Skittlez Barbie

    I agree. N its a shame because this is one of her better performances. You can hear her she isn’t lip syncing. Smh she should have brought drake n wayne out so the nba dudes wud at least pay attention.

  • 🇵🇦LaBellaPana🇵🇦


  • mikster

    let me look at her nose!

  • Such A Baddie

    Me too… like Nicki, Issa no for this one babe.

  • Such A Baddie

    While I didn’t like her performance I totally agree with you about the crowd and demographics. That’s like a hip hop head going to a rock concert…when rock isn’t really their twist, they’re gonna be in the audience looking dry and stale like wtf…not knowing the words of feeling it heavy. Let it had been her teeny bopper barb stans they woulda been turning tf up. The whole vibe seemed awkward in that room lol. I was confused watching it online and I wasn’t even there 😭

  • Such A Baddie

    That’s really what’s carrying her is her looks at this point (minus her nose cuz that botched thing is scary) and it looks weird. She started off hood, went commercial and the pop was working for her, but now it doesn’t seem like even pop is gonna keep her afloat. She need to go back to metaphors, bars and rapping cuz I’m bored asf and I like Nicki, but nothing she’s been doing since she and safaree broke up (and thats not a coincidence) has been dope we can tell he wrote or “helped” her write all of her material..

  • Such A Baddie

    Omg I just said that in my comment. Idk who the hell this is, but I need roman, nicki lewinski, Martha, harajuku barbie…sit on ya favorite rappers face nicki…sigh

  • Such A Baddie

    OMG! You read my mind. I almost fell asleep…all the songs were bad and the performances were boring. Even pop doesn’t seem to be working for her. She need to summon one of her alter egos for help or something 😖 Roman, Martha, the mistress, harajuku barbie, nicki lewinski, hell idk. Her nose just really bothers me. It was def a botched job. That’s the thing about noses, she can probably try and get it fixed, but it usually never comes out right and it will start to look like Michael Jackson, not enough cartilage…I ♥️ Lil Kim down but her nose is bad too. Also Dwight from house wives.

  • mikster

    issa, no she needs to be humble and end the beef or do better

  • Skittlez Barbie

    She should have did this at the BET awards. The crowd here didn’t show her much love. Idk y its an audience full of dudes I thought.

  • Holly👱🏾‍♀️

    I fell asleep while watching this😴

  • Myemaildied

    Imma need the “beam me up Scotty” nicki back. AND why does 2 chainz make me giggle every time, can’t take him serious

  • crowd participation or not. the transitions were boring especially no frauds model walk to center stage. she can’t sing any of HER OWN vocals…she doesn’t even make the effort. She looks like a rookie not the seasoned vet she claims to be.

  • Papibobbybrown

    If I was there honeyyyyyyy BABY I would’ve been screaming 😭😭

    They would’ve had to ask me to leave shit! She did look great tho. Tbh the performance didn’t match the event. It felt odd only for that reason. Performance was good tho in my opinion

  • wuzzy

    crowd was quite tho…smh

  • wuzzy


  • wuzzy

    Boney T in the house lol

  • wuzzy

    Haa…I love it EBT….

  • She looked great, but I think crowd participation definitely matters when it comes to live performances. She needed a couple Barbs in the audience. It looked like an expensive talent show.

  • Keishabae

    Issa no for me dawg. F for effort

  • MelaninGoddess

    Hmmmmm I thought that she skipped BET because she knew that she was going to lose that award to Remy Ma….. But you aint heard that from me

  • SapphireRoyale504

    That was it?! That was a pre show performance before the real show.

  • Talone

    Yasss she’s giving me Wonder Woman tease with this performance I loved it. Glad she skipped out on all of that mess at the EBT awards
