In a totally unexpected but exciting turn of events, Nicki Minaj has officially invited Katt Williams to join her Pink Friday 2 World Tour. The tour, beginning March 1st, is set to be an amazing fusion of music and comedy, as two entertainment icons join forces for a great time that will never be forgotten.

Why Katt Williams?

He has become a household name for his fast-paced, sharp jokes, and unapologetic delivery. Williams has become one of the best in business through his stand-up specials as well as movie roles which are brilliantly funny. And now, Nicki Minaj wants to inject such comic vibes to her tour.

The artist known for the smash hit "Barbie World" went live on Instagram this Tuesday (February 20) just before heading to rehearsals. With Monica joining the North American tour leg, she felt it necessary to inject some humor into the show.

"I know that this is the busiest man in show business, ok?” she told her viewers. “I know that he’s rich, and I know that he’s the funniest man in showbiz. Can y’all hit up Katt Williams and ask him what would be his price…to be a part of the Pink Friday 2 Gag City Tour."

"He ain’t got to come out every day. “But I would like to know if on one of his off days, if I could slide him a little bag, I mean a big bag and then have him come out. Can y’all imagine if Katt Williams was in Gag City for like a few minutes? Tell him to holla at me."

A bold move

The decision to request Williams to perform on the same stage with Minaj was a courageous one. However, the typical lineup of a concert is our musician friends or the so-called unknown-potential-artist, but Minaj is trying something different by adding an old comic to the list of entertainers. But maybe it is this very collage that is the main plot of the film – the amusing combination of hip-hop music and hilarious scenes.

What to expect

Fans can look forward to a dynamic show that seamlessly transitions from Minaj’s electrifying rap verses to Williams’ side-splitting anecdotes. Whether it’s Williams riffing on pop culture or Minaj spitting fiery lyrics, the Pink Friday 2 World Tour promises to be an exhilarating ride.
