Nicki Minaj; The Roots Tapped To Promote Casio's Tryx

Nicki Minaj and The Roots have teamed with Casio America to promote the company's new camera the Casio Tryx.

Nicki and The Roots will hit the stage during the "Tryx Out NYC: 2011" launch party for the camera on April 7th in New York.

"Casio sure knows how to design a camera," Nicki Minaj said in a statement. "I'm excited to be part of the Tryx Out: NYC 2011 launch party and look forward to working together with Casio to make sure this camera gets the party it deserves! With a Tryx in my hand, there's no doubt that I'll be able to take incredible images and video on tour and beyond."

During the event, which is also open to the public, attendees will be able to test Casio's Tryx camera, which features a 12.1 megapixel camera, with the unique ability to swivel 270-degrees.

"We are excited to perform at the launch event for the Casio Tryx," said Questlove. "From what I hear, the camera has a state-of-the-art, innovative design, and I'm eager to get a chance to see it myself."

The launch party for the Casio Tryx will take place at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square on April 7th.
