Tyga’s smash single “Rack City” has done more for his career than he ever could’ve dreamed of. The Young Money star is now slated to perform at the adult film version of the Oscars, the AVN Awards. The award show, which takes place on January 19th 2013, will be held in  The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Tyga made headlines this past year when he directed and starred (a non-physical role) in his first adult film, Rack City Adult Videos: The Movie

“It’s going to be a lot of fun being in Vegas, going to the awards and performing on stage,” Tyga told AVN. “Once I saw it on TV I knew how big it was. It’s the 30th anniversary, and I know it’s a big night. I got a little taste of p**n now through doing my movie and playing the awards is going to be something else. I’m really looking forward to it, and I plan on having a lot of fun.”

The AVN’s has had artists such as Flo Rida, Chingy, Lil’ Jon, Baby Bash, and Too Short perform at the show in years’ past.
