Future will perform at this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, the network confirmed Monday afternoon.

The Atlanta rapper is in the middle of the Summer Sixteen Tour with Drake, but there is a two-day break allowing him to perform at the VMAs, which are being held at New York's Madison Square Garden, before he flies back to Florida to continue the tour.

"My creativity comes from me being in the studio and from my past situations," Future says in promo video released today. “It’s about mastering a tone for me ... mastering a melody, mastering a style. It’s about becoming one with the beat. It’s about taking the beat places that the beat never thought it could go. My music is a diary. It carries volumes.”

Previously announced VMAs performers include Rihanna, who will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, as well as Britney Spears, G-Eazy, Nick Jonas and Ty Dolla $ign, with others to be revealed this week.

The VMAs are set for this Sunday (Aug. 28) at 9 p.m. EST, airing live on MTV.
