As well as these added shows, it has also been announced that Young Money’s latest rising star Tyga, has been announced as special guest on all European dates. Tyga’s standout performances on Young Money’s ‘We Are Young Money’ album (notably on the singles Bedrock” and “Roger That”), Chris Brown’s “Deuces” and a multitude of well-received mix-tapes set the stage for his highly anticipated Young Money/Cash Money debut album, ‘Careless World: Rise of The Last King’, which includes the debut single “Far Away” featuring Cash Money artist Chris Richardson.

2011 was an incredible year for Nicki, with her multi-platinum selling debut album PINK FRIDAY boasting the most charted singles by any female rap album in Billboard history. Nicki also became the first artist to have 7 singles on the Billboard HOT 100 chart simultaneously. In addition to winning Best Hip Hop Video at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards along with Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album and Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist at the 2011 American Music Awards, Nicki was recently nominated for three Grammys for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album

Her second studio album the certified Gold Selling ‘Pink Friday…Roman Reloaded’ was released in April this year, crashing straight to number 1 in the UK charts. It has already spawned one of the most successful singles of the year – ‘Starships’ which is 3 x platinum in the UK, was top 20 on iTunes in more than 40 countries and to date has received 41 million views online. Videos for tracks ‘Beez in The Trap’ and ‘Right By My Side’ have received 46 million and 25 million views respectively online. Her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’ will be released July 9th.

Minaj, unarguably the most exciting, colourful and larger than life artist to emerge in recent years, recently wowed crowds with her main stage performance at Radio 1’s Hackney Big Weekend on Saturday and two sell out performances at HMV Hammersmith Apollo, Birmingham NIA Academy and Manchester O2 Academy.

With almost 4 million albums sold, 20 million likes on Facebook, 13 million followers on Twitter and a global profile growing by the day, 2012 is the year this 5’ 2” phenomenon truly arrived.
