Hip-hop artist Fatman Scoop
celebrated his birthday at LAX Nightclub inside Luxor Hotel and Casino with a
very special live performance. Just before 1 a.m.
the guest host for the night entered the venue with his small posse of six.
Resident DJ Gusto got the party started by spinning one of Fatman Scoop’s track
before the artist immediately jumped on stage and started his birthday
Before the lively entertainer
with the unique voice began an assortment of hit songs, he asked the security
to remove the ropes and allow his fans to get up close for the mini-concert.
His crowd pleasing set included his own singles, “It Takes Scoop,” and “Drop,”
and also adding his rough, raw, loud voice covering Crooklyn Clan’s, “Wanna
Jump,” Taio Cruz’s, “Dynamite” and more.
Highlight of the night for
the avid Sin City partygoers was when Fatman Scoop made his way to the center
of the nightclub’s dance floor and sang to DMX’s track, “Party Up (Up In
Here),” where he had the fans simultaneously jumping up-and-down inside the
mega-club. He closed with a crowd favorite and his GRAMMY® Award-winning
single, Missy Elliott’s, “Lose Control.”
Following his 30-minute set,
the birthday boy was presented with a cake specifically decorated to match his
stage name. The hip-hop artist was smitten by his ice cream themed birthday
cake as he blew out his candles and asked if he could take it home with
him. Following the cake presentation
Fatman Scoop returned to his private VIP table and continued to celebrate his birthday with his wife and close
friends until the early hours of the morning.
