All the Rappers Who Will Be Here All-Star Weekend, Part 2
Ei8ht Lounge (5102 Washington, Tickets):
Friday: Lance Gross & Rocsi Diaz
Saturday: Big Sean & Wale
Sunday: French Montana
Here's where things get a bit tricky. This could easily be Mario Elie package, but it's Clyde simply because it's a 1,200 person venue, and 800 tickets are being sold for Nas. The same could apply for Big Sean, Wale and French Montana in the coming days. Want all four people dates? $200 could secure you.
Warehouse Live (813 St. Emanuel, Tickets):
Thursday: Jadakiss, Scarface, Juelz Santana
Friday: Meek Mill, Fabolous, DJ Drama
Saturday: Birdman's Birthday Bash Hosted by DJ Khaled
For three nights, Warehouse Live is pretty much all-out ground zero for celebrity fun and concerts with the most gaudy of the three events being Birdman's birthday party. If Birdman throws a party, you go to it for the sheer "What Could Possibly Happen Here" factor being at a 9, right? Plus, the promoters have packaged these things into a deal for your buck.
THE HAKEEM OLAJUWON PACKAGE ($100+)
(The greatest ever -- and also the most inexplicable.)
Jay-Z @ Rich's (2401 San Jacinto, Tickets)
It's one thing to party with Jay-Z. It's another when you read off the bottle service you can get here, all the way up to a rap fantasy of $100,000 where you can hang out with 250 of your friends, your own personal bouncers, 10 bottles of Aces of Spades, your own private bar and then some. It might be the greatest non-Vegas moment of your life but only if you dare.
Shaq @ The Marque (798 Sorella Ct, Tickets)
You're asking - why is Shaq part of this list and not the Drexler one? Oh, it's quite simple: bottle service. That and there's an option to spend $10,000 on a bottle here and enjoy Shaq's "Superman VIP" lounge. I think they show Blue Chips on loop in there.
T.I., Young Jeezy & Trinidad James @ Ayva Center (9371 Richmond, Tickets)
Remember earlier when I said this was going to be the tougher ticket for Trinidad? Yeah, T.I.'s with him. And if you party with the King Of The South, you're best bet is to just party like him.
Future & 2 Chainz @ Venue (723 Main, Tickets)
Since Future has come into his own, he's become the king of hooks and songs dealing with love. 2 Chainz? Well, 2 Chainz is 2 Chainz, one of rap's great paradoxes simply because he used to be someone else, changed his name and became a household name. Yup.
