You couldn’t possibly book a bigger, better guest for your 4/20 party than Snoop Dogg, especially since the Long Beach legend is riding high on a recent resurgence: He grabbed an Emmy nomination last year for VH1 cooking show Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, and his TBS game show The Joker’s Wild is generating buzz about a possible late-night talk show gig.
But what if you could also aim for sizzling-hot rap duo Rae Sremmurd, featured this month in Rolling Stone and Billboard and bumping new tracks “Chanel” with Pharrell and “Guatemala” as they prepare to release three-disc third album Sr3mm? That would be a tough choice. Drai’s Nightclub decided on both.
Everyone knows Drai’s boasts the biggest names in hip-hop as residents and guest artists performing at its Drai’s Live concert series, but this year the Cromwell club has been offering two-for-one headlining stars. 2 Chainz and Trey Songz teamed for a St. Patrick’s Day party, and Songz returned the following week to share the bill with Sremmurd. Since Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi recently took a turn as guests on Snoop’s YouTube show GGB, it was only natural for Friday night’s pairing to come together. Next up for Cinco de Mayo weekend: T.I. with Trey Songz on May 4 and Songz with DJ Pauly D of Jersey Shore fame at Drai’s Beachclub on May 5.
“We’re proud of always being on the leading edge of both entertainment and culture,” Konstantine Deslis, Drai’s director of entertainment, says. “The Drai’s Live concert series was groundbreaking for the entire nightlife industry, and with the recent launch of co-headlined shows, we look forward to continuing to push boundaries and creating live entertainment experiences that can only be found at Drai’s Las Vegas.”
SNOOP DOGG & RAE SREMMURD April 20, 10:30 p.m., $40-$60. Drai’s Nightclub, the Cromwell, 702-777-3800.
