This past weekend was full of guests coming in to Drai’s Nightclub to experience the very best in nightlife entertainment – Nelly got it started for us Friday evening, and Saturday was the return of 2 Chainz. The partying was nonstop at all of our VIP tables with drinks flowing everywhere as people celebrated birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and everything in between! We had some surprises in store for the weekend as well, so read on for our weekly recap.
And what better way to kick the weekend off than with our very own Nelly live in concert? It was a packed house as Nelly fans old and new made their way to the hottest destination on the Strip to sing along and dance to his timeless chart-toppers like “E.I.,” “Where the Party At,” “Air Force Ones” and much more. “First off I wanna thank Drai’s for having me here tonight! I wanna thank each and every one of you for holding Nelly down for 18, 19 years right now! But before we continue I need to know, who’s been down with Nelly since day 1?!” Cheers erupted as Nelly then performed his breakout hit “Country Grammar” followed by “Ride Wit Me,” dedicated to those that’s been riding with him since 2000. “Before we move on we got some ladies that’s getting married soon… but before you get married we gotta do something special!” He then invited two brides to be to join him on stage to sing along to “Dilemma,” with all the ladies helping out and singing along! Nelly was more than happy to hang out on stage afterwards to greet fans and keep the party going, eventually bringing out “Hot in Herre” to conclude the show with a bang. You can catch Nelly again on Sunday, March 24 here at Drai’s Nightclub!
Saturday was a sold out affair as partygoers from all over came out to see 2 Chainz! Celebrations were in full effect with bottle presentations and tables making it rain all night long – “If you from out of town make some noise!” Chainz began his set with “No Problem” and “All Me,” never failing to get the massive crowd amped up. The charismatic rapper performed banger after banger, from “I’m Different” to Atlanta staple “Bands a Make Her Dance” – “Let’s take it back to where I started from… How many of y’all remember Tity Boi from Playaz Circle?” Screams filled the air as he then went back to 2007’s “Duffle Bag Boy.” We even had Nelly from the night before join him on stage! 2 Chainz couldn’t help but show some love to his brother and fellow resident: “I love you man for real, we’ve known each other for a long time!” At this point he had his DJ play “Hot in Herre” to cheers everywhere, as Nelly smiled and obliged to perform the 2002 hit – another incredible moment here at Drai’s Nightclub! He closed it out his latest single “Two-Dollar Bill” (featuring Lil Wayne), from his upcoming album Rap or Go to the League set to release this Friday – “I appreciate y’all, thank you for the love!” 2 Chainz will be back Saturday, March 9 as we proudly host his official album release party!
