Young MC Takes Over LAX For Throwback Thursday
Young MC performed to a packed house at LAX Nightclub at Luxor Hotel and Casino on Thursday, Feb. 18, when he headlined the venue's Throwback Thursday series. Audiences raised their hands in the air for the GRAMMY award-winning rapper, actor, and songwriter, who performed songs including "Feel the Love" and the hit single and cultural phenomenon, "Bust a Move," before mingling with fans and enjoying hits spun by DJ R.O.B. inside the club with friends.
Young M.C. made his mark on music history in 1989, when he collaborated with Tone-Loc on the hit single "Wild Thing," which became the first Top Ten pop hit for a black rapper. He went on to earn his first Top Ten single in his own right with the smash hit "Bust A Move," for which he won the GRAMMY for Best Rap Performance in 1990. The song was most recently hailed by VH1 in its countdown of the 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs and on its selection of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 1980s.
Every Thursday at LAX Nightclub, DJs spin favorite hits from the '80s and '90s, with several memorable Throwback performers hosting select nights throughout the year. Guests are encouraged to don their favorite fashion from the era to bring back the ambiance of the unforgettable decades.
On Thursday, March 10, West Coast hip-hop pioneer Too Short will take the stage. Known for hit songs "The Ghetto" and "Blow the Whistle," Too Short holds the distinction of being one of the few artists to collaborate with both 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. during the height of their careers.
LAX Nightclub ushered in 2016 on the eve of the New Year, by revealing state-of-the-art upgrades to its lighting and sound system, a LED feature surrounding the DJ booth, and sleek new design elements. Over the course of 2016, the venue plans to continue an aggressive rejuvenation, with heavy emphasis on the Throwback Thursday programming.
