Mister 400 Degreez, Juvenile turned up the heat at LAX Nightclub inside Luxor Hotel and Casino on Thursday, Aug. 18 as the latest headliner in the venue's Throwback Thursday series. The New Orleans-based Dirty South rapper delivered a six-song superset of hits to a full house, with his son, Young Juve, providing backup. The artist and longtime manager Drae Jackson were presented with a cake following the performance to commemorate eleven years of collaborating.
Juvenile was at the forefront of the '90s "bounce" dance craze that emerged from New Orleans. With hits including "Back That Thang Up" and "Ha," he released his No. 1 hit single "Slow Motion" in 2004. He is expected to debut his upcoming full-length album, "800 Degreez," later this year.
On Thursday, Sept. 1, fellow New Orleanian Mystikal will headline the nightclub's Throwback Thursday series. Mystikal skyrocketed on the charts in the summer of 1999 with the No. 1 single "Danger (Been So Long)." He has since released hits including "I Smell Smoke," "If It Ain't Live, It Ain't Me" and "Bouncin' Back," which was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2003.
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.
