Last evening, (Tuesday, Feb. 18), hip-hop icon Ice Cube gave a memorable live performance at hot spot Hakkasan Las Vegas Nightclub at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, which opened its doors for a special mid-weed bash for the official Creative Recreation and Hudson Jeans party during PROJECT|Magic Las Vegas. Taking over the main room of the nightlife mecca, Ice Cube arrived just before 2 a.m. and was escorted to his VIP booth located on the nightclub’s main stage, as DJ Vice and Irie manned the decks.
While seated in VIP, Ice Cube enjoyed a glass of champagne with his wife, Kimberly Woodruff, and prepared for his performance while taking in the sights and high energy of the crowd in the main room. Thousands of partygoers were bursting with excitement as DJ Vice got on the mic from behind the DJ booth to announce Ice Cube’s arrival and anticipated performance.
Around 2:30 a.m., the “Ride Along” star got on the mic to address the crowd as he hopped on top of the DJ booth and began his set. Putting on a crowd-pleasing performance that had hands up in the air and fans dancing all throughout the nightspot, Ice Cube’s set included a compilation of his hits including “You Can Do It,” “Check Yo Self,” “We Be Clubbin’” and “It Was a Good Day.”
Also in attendance at Hakkasan Nightclub last night was the band Capital Cities, who headed over to the complex following their concert which took place earlier in the evening. Band members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, sat in a VIP booth located on the mezzanine but headed to the main stage following Ice Cube’s performance, to congratulate the hip-hop artist on an amazing show.
