Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace welcomed hip-hop artist Fat Joe as he put on a special Fat Tuesday performance for a Mardi Gras bash on Tuesday night. Arriving around 1 a.m. the multi-platinum rapper joined by his entourage, took his place at his VIP booth on the main stage.
Fat Joe immediately became center of attention as resident DJ Shift got on the mic and announced his presence. Shortly before his performance the rap master took time to meet and take photos with admiring fans from a nearby table.
Just after 1:30 a.m. the lights in the club focused center stage and Fat Joe appeared kicking off his performance with his hit “We Takin’ Over.” The packed club soared with excitement as the artist and business man put on a high-energy set playing all his fans’ favorites. Fat Joe suddenly stopped the music and addressed the audience, “I see a lot of beautiful ladies, independent ladies out there tonight,” pausing for reaction he continued. “To all my beautiful ladies, this is dedicated to you” and he segued into his chart-topper “What’s Love” and had the entire nightclub singing along. The artist continued his mini-concert as he performed his classic hits including “Get It Poppin’,”Another Round” and “Make It Rain.”
Halfway through his set the artist paid tribute to past hip-hop icons including Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. as well as today’s top artists Jay-Z and DJ Khaled. Fat Joe began his song “Lean Back” and had the entire dance floor on their feet doing the artist’s famed dance move. As the track cut out and the crowd finished the song Fat Joe said, “I love you Vegas,” and made his way off the stage.
The rap sensation returned to his VIP booth and spent the rest of his evening sipping cocktails, meeting fans and even inviting a few lucky admires to join him at his table.
