On Thursday, September 6, MTV will air its annual VMAs, and like in years past, it has tapped some of hip-hop's biggest names to grace their stage.

According to MTV.com, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz and A$AP Rocky will all be performing live at the awards, set to televise at 8 p.m. The show will reportedly open with a collaborative performance from Rihanna and Rocky, where they'll perform the "Cockiness (Remix)." Minaj is said to have a guest special guest for her set, while Tunechi will be following up his show-closing performance from the 2011 edition.

Meanwhile, Rostrum Records rappers Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller are both scheduled to present awards.
