Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz are teaming up for this year’s 2011 MTV Movie Awards. The Chicago, Illinois rapper is slated to perform with Trigga Trey at this year’s ceremony, broadcasting live from California’s Gibson Amphitheatre on June 5th at 9 p.m. EST.

During the performance, Lu will perform two cuts off his recent release Lasers, including his platinum single “The Show Goes On” and his duet with Trey titled “Out of My Head.”

“’Out of My Head’ is such a dope song and easily one of my favorite collaborations to date,” said Trey in a statement. “When Lupe first played the track for me I knew it was going to be a smash, and I’m happy it’s been received so well. The MTV Movie Awards are such a special event, and Lupe is a great performer, so I am excited to be able to do the show with him.”
