Fall is officially here, but Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub continues to bring the heat with exclusive, full-length performances in Las Vegas! This time we got it started on Friday afternoon with a special edition of Drai’s Beachclub, as JusCollege took over the rooftop venue with BENZI; later that night was the return of Nelly at Drai’s Nightclub; and Saturday evening was the official album release party for DIME TRAP, with TIP live in concert at the Drai’s LIVE stage!
Based on the photos alone, you wouldn’t be able to tell if this was a scene from spring break or not — it was that wild on the rooftop of The Cromwell Friday afternoon! College students from across the U.S. came out to party one last time for dayclub season at Drai’s Beachclub, in partnership of JusCollege, as our very own BENZI held it down all day. The venue was jam-packed from start to finish, with every cabana and bungalow filled with partygoers — drinks were flowing all day as people made a splash all around our many sparkling pools; it was just nonstop fun everywhere you looked! BENZI kept the madness alive as he played the best dance, alternative and hip-hop mixes, from Sheck Wes’ “Mo Bamba” to Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” and everything in between. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to wrap up our incredible 2018 dayclub season, and would like to thank you all for making it so memorable — we’ll see you again next summer for even more amazing performances and surprises!
Friday night saw the return of Nelly at the Las Vegas night club, always bringing in an enthusiastic crowd to keep the good vibes going. This time he was seen wearing a fashionable Fendi “Monster Eyes” shirt, rounded out with a clean pair of Air Jordan 3 “White Cements” as he started us off with “E.I.,” “Knuck If You Buck” and “Air Force Ones,” with fans cheering as loud as they can! “I wanna thank y’all for being here tonight. Shout out to Drai’s, shout out to the West Coast! Thank y’all for holding it down with me for 18, 19, 20 years — I wanna know who’s been riding with Nelly since day 1! Let’s take it back to memory lane…” The Drai’s resident then performed his breakout 2000 debut single “Country Grammar” as everyone sang along to the classic, happily shaking hands with his fans on the dance floor. Nelly effortlessly blended other rap hits like “Plug Walk,” “All I Do Is Win,” and “Grove St. Party” with his own bangers like “Ride Wit Me,” “Grillz,” “The Fix” and more! Nelly closed it out with fan-favorites “Hot in Herre” and “Dilemma,” as all the ladies sang with the St. Louis rapper for a duet. You can catch Nelly again this Friday, October 19 here at Drai’s Nightclub! Click here for tickets.
Drai’s Nightclub was proud to be hosting TIP’s official album release party for DIME TRAP, his long-awaited 10th studio album that came out earlier this month. As with any TIP show it was a packed house with bottle presentations, tables making it rain, and partygoers up and dancing the night away! “If you love trap music make some noise!” The trap king came out to “Top Back” and “Rubberband Man,” setting the mood just right for this epic evening. “Who’s been down with the king since day 1? I truly appreciate the love, but there’s a few that still don’t know me…” and just in case there were a few that needed a friendly reminder, TIP made sure no one will forget as he performed “U Don’t Know Me” as cheers filled the air. “Look, I dunno if it’s just me but I see a lot of fresh faces out here tonight! I just wanna know if I can holla at you for a minute!” TIP reached his hand out to the dance floor as he brought out “Let’s Get Away,” “Why You Wanna,” “No Mediocre” and “Whatever You Like” for all the lovely ladies screaming and singing along. “The DIME TRAP is everywhere right now; if y’all wanna hear some new s*** make some noise!” His latest singles “Wraith” and “Jefe” were next, followed by an array of chart-toppers to get the hype rolling. TIP concluded his show with a bang with “What You Know” and “ATM,” keeping the party going well into the night. “DIME TRAP out now — it’s the KING b****!”
