We’re not sure if model, actress and budding feminist icon Amber Rose is still working on her very own Vegas party at the Sugar Factory’s Strip-side Chocolate Lounge, or if she’s on or off with 21 Savage. But she’s definitely going to push the Memorial Day Weekend pool party at the Flamingo to new levels on Saturday. May 26, 9 a.m., $15; Flamingo, 702-697-2888.


Model and social media personality Tori Brixx has made the most of every bit of exposure and is now an emerging actress, fashion and beauty influencer and DJ. She guested on Nick Cannon’s MTV show Wild ’n Out and has a recurring role on the CBS podcast Loveline. She’s connected to celebrity fashion lines from Khloe Kardashian and Blac Chyna, and she has already played a Vegas pool this summer, popping into the new Influence at the Linq recently. Now she’s leading MDW festivities at Crazy Horse III, and that sounds like a party. May 26, 1 a.m., $50; 3525 W. Russell Road, 702-673-1700.


If you’re unaware of how big a thing 38-year-old Alabama-born Radric Davis has become, you should know that Brian Grazer is planning an 8 Mile-style film to tell the story of trap music and Gucci is his main man. The “Lemonade” rapper and star of BET’s The Mane Event was spotted hanging with the recently liberated Meek Mill and New England Patriots chairman Robert Kraft at an NBA playoff game this month, so there’s that. May 26, 10:30 p.m., $64-$138; Venetian, 702-388-8588.


Since he started his career as a radio disc jockey and is now a bona fide movie star and TV special-event host, it might seem as if his nine albums and monster hits like “Southern Hospitality” and “Rollout (My Business)” were just a musical tangent. No doubt he’ll be dropping plenty of those Southern rap bombs while constructing a memorable party at his Vegas headquarters Sunday night. May 27, 10:30 p.m., $20-$30; Mandalay Bay, 702-632-4700.
