The 'Right By My Side' rapper is excited about helping support fellow Cash Money artist Tyga.

Nicki Minaj says she can't wait to kick off her international tour later this year alongside support acts Tyga and Misha B.

The 'Starships' rapper says the tour will be an important moment for her as Tyga is also part of her US label Young Money, meaning it is the first time she will have toured with one of her label mates since joining Lil wayne on his 'America's Most Wanted' tour back in 2009.

Nicki is currently taking her 'Pink Friday' world tour across the US with fellow rapper 2 Chainz, who also features on her hit single 'Beez In The Trap', before she starts her international jaunt in the UK this October.

"We're finishing up the summer tour with 2 Chainz in America and then we're doin' the overseas tour with Tyga," Nicki revealed to MTV News. "I'm very, very excited about that.

"This is the first time I get to tour with somebody from Young Money, since I branded out on my own," Nicki added.

Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday' US tour continues tonight (2nd August) with a show in Denver, Colorado.
