Hip-hop icons Rev Run and Ruckus put on an unrivalled deejay and emcee set for guests at Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace during the official Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show party on Tuesday night. The talented duo arrived on the red carpet just after midnight where they stopped and posed for photographers before making their way into the hot spot. At 12:30 a.m. Ruckus took over the DJ booth and began to hype up the packed club preparing them for the arrival of the one-and-only Rev Run of the influential hip-hop group Run-D.M.C.
Around 1 a.m. the legendary rapper appeared inside the DJ booth located on the main stage and hopped on the mic. “You all are rocking with the king of rock!” he said and the nightclub rumbled as his fans cheered with excitement. Beginning their set with a few remixes of classic songs including “I Love Rock and Roll” and “Jump Around” the energetic twosome immediately had guests on their feet. Addressing his fans once again, Rev Run asked the crowd, “Where are all my old school fans?” and continued to perform fan favorite rock and hip-hop mixes.
The historian Rev Run exclaimed that real hip-hop had ascended on Las Vegas as the guys put on a non-stop set while performing an unpredictable mixture of classic club bangers and today’s top hits that had guests dancing and singing along. At 2 a.m. Rev Run made his way out of the club and Ruckus kept the party going a little bit longer before he closed out the high-energy set. Pure Nightclub was certainly a sight to see as the celebrated pair transformed the destination and took their fans on an action-packed musical journey back in time.
