ESPN magazine has put out its music issue and gracing the cover is none other than a leggy and platinum wig-wearing Nicki Minaj, who is draped against NBA superstar Kobe Bryant.

Her Minajesty is perched on an amp, wearing super cute, bow accessorized platforms and a huge smile, while a white blazer wearing Bryant is leaning against the same amp, as Minaj holds onto his shoulders.

If we didn't know any better, we'd think that they were the first couple of hip-hop.

Other artists and athletes are tagged on the cover, as well. But we are definitely curious as to why the mag chose Minaj to rep its music issue. She looks damn fine, though!

Well, whatever the case, Minaj and Bryant are a striking pair, even if just for a mag photo opp.
