Metro Boomin’s Top Produced Hits Will Help You Crush Club Night

If you are looking for some incredible hits from one of the hottest record producers, then look no further than Metro Boomin. Not only is he only 23 years old but he has already helped produce hits with Drake and Kanye West as well — you might have heard of them.

In the spirit of Metro venturing to LIGHT Nightclub on April 1 (get your tickets for this Saturday, folks!), we will be unleashing some of his top produced hits.

Take it away, Metro Boomin.

“Jumpman”

Not only is this song amazing, but even Taylor Swift jams out to it while working out. Need we say more?

“Karate Chop”

“Karate Chop” might not be the most famous song Metro has ever produced, but it still ranks near the top in our hearts. Not only that, but it will surely help you get pumped up for Metro Boomin this Saturday.

“I Won”

Metro — in every way imaginable — won himself a trophy by producing this song. It doesn’t necessarily have “club music” written all over it, but it is amazing in every sense of the word.

“Bounce Back”

Big Sean killed it with “Bounce Back” — there’s really no other way to put it, and you can “Bounce Back” on Saturday with Metro himself at LIGHT Nightclub.

“Tuesday”

Yes, Metro Boomin helped produce “Tuesday.” And yes, this is the perfect song to get you pumped up for club night. To this day, this song is still a must-play at the club. That likely won’t be changing anytime soon.

Bonus Round Time: “Bad and Boujee”

These Are Without a Doubt The 5 Best T-Pain Songs Ever

In spirit of the great T-Pain performing at LIGHT Nightclub, we have compiled a list the best songs T-Pain has ever laid down.

We know what you’re thinking. T-Pain has an endless amount of hits, so how does one break it down to just five jams? Good question.

Even if you disagree with my list, here’s something we can all definitely agree on: T-Pain is one of the best artists in the business, and he has no shortage of amazing songs.

Before you catch T-Pain at LIGHT Nightclub, do yourself a favor by putting these five songs on repeat and get pumped up for his big performance.

“Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”

We might as well start this list off with a bang, #amirite?

The club is the perfect atmosphere for this song, because everyone loves having a drink bought for them. Pour up, ladies and gentlemen.

“All I Do Is Win”

This song is filled with the best of the best.

DJ Khaled. Ludacris. Rick Ross. Snoop Dogg, and of course, T-Pain. Given all of that talent, this track was destined to be a hit.

“Blame It”

But seriously, blame it on the alcohol. What’s life without a few bad decisions and a weekend in Vegas?

Take it away, Jamie Foxx and T-Pain.

“I’m In Luv (Wit A Stripper)”

This has “T-Pain” written all over it. It might be an older track, if you will, but it is also a classic, especially on club night.

“Booty Wurk (One Cheek At A Time)”

If you are trying to get pumped up for a night out at the club, then this song likely makes the pregame playlist every time.

The best part about this song? Kevin Hart joined in on the action.

Why You Should Stay At Mandalay Bay During March Madness

Lovers of the NCAA tournament and sports, March madness is among us. On Thursday, which just so happens to be tomorrow, the Big Dance will be the only thing that people are talking about — well, that and their busted brackets, that is.

If you just so happen to be in Las Vegas, or want to plan a quick getaway, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino during March Madness is your best bet.

Reminder: While the field of 64 takes place on Thursday, the tournament will be going strong on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and then there is always next weekend to join in on the fun. If you are looking to make this March Madness the best one yet, then head on over to Mandalay Bay to experience everything this glorious resort/casino has to offer.

DAYLIGHT Beach Club

If you are looking for the ultimate outdoor experience, then DAYLIGHT Beach Club is the place for you.

Everyone Knows These Are the Best Weekends to Visit Las Vegas

 

11902449_708763165896168_6840938270547828184_n (1)

Do you book your Las Vegas trips in the summer when it is boiling hot outside, or do you go during the golden months, which is typically between March and May? Perhaps you are a holiday aficionado, so you like to venture to Vegas during the main holidays (spoiler alert: you are not alone).

While booking trips to Vegas is a subjective matter (it truly depends on the person), if you are looking to have the most fun possible (why wouldn’t you be?), then you will do your darnedest to book your next trip during one of the weekends below.

You. Will. Not. Regret. It.

Without further ado, here are the best weekends to visit Vegas if you are trying to maximize your fun.

Spring Break … Forever

If you are looking to save money on things like plane tickets and hotel prices, then you would be doing yourself a huge favor by booking during some random weekend in the winter. 

However, if you are trying to channel your inner Frank The Tank, and take a page out of your college playbook, then there is no better time to venture to Vegas than spring break.

Cinco de Mayo

Not only are there plenty of bars and restaurants (you might have heard) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Vegas, but this holiday also takes place right around Fight Weekend.

If you are a fan of the big fight (how awesome was the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao bout?!), then you have to spend this monster weekend in Vegas. It’s one of the best when it comes to pure entertainment — to say the least.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend just so happens to be jam-packed with crazy events and the best of times — if you celebrate it in Las Vegas. The best part? These amazing times can be had on a yearly basis.

If you are looking to take your three-day weekend to the ultimate level this Memorial Day, then Vegas will surely welcome you with open arms. This is the perfect way to kick off your summer. Vegas. Memorial Day Weekend. Yeah, see you there.

4th Of July

If you can withstand the heat (we’re talking triple digits here), then 4th of July is one of the best weekends — well, when it falls on a weekend, that is — to visit the one and only Las Vegas.

Not only are the prices for tickets and hotels typically cheaper when the temperatures are blazing hot, but Vegas knows how to throw one heck of a party during America’s birthday, if you will.

The First Weekend Of March Madness

There are so many reasons why you should book your next Vegas trip for the first weekend of the NCAA tournament (aka March Madness).

Here are some of those reasons: (1) The Big Dance is arguably the best time to be a sports fan, and Vegas is loaded with TVs to watch all of the madness. (2) People love to bet on the tournament, and there is no better place to bet on sports than Vegas (the Mandalay Bay Sports Book is legendary). (3) The first weekend of March Madness takes place during spring break season. (4) It doesn’t happen every year, but this year, the first weekend of the NCAA tournament will not only be celebrating hoops but St. Patrick’s Day as well (it falls on a Friday in 2017).

Need we say more?

New Year’s

No matter where you are in the country (or world for that matter), New Year’s Eve is always one of the biggest parties of the year, and that is especially the case when it happens to fall on a weekend.

Combine that with Vegas and the good times will surely be rolling all weekend long. If you haven’t seen the strip on New Year’s Eve, you haven’t lived.

Super Bowl Weekend

Football Sundays and Vegas go together like peanut butter and jelly, so it’s no surprise that Super Bowl weekend is one of the most fun to visit Vegas. Gamblers from all over the world rejoice in the prop betting paradise. Who among us hasn’t placed a bet on the National Anthem at the Super Bowl?

If you can’t make it to the game itself, Vegas is not a bad consolation prize.

To be frank with you, there isn’t a bad time to visit Las Vegas. It is considered one of the most entertaining places on the planet. Not to mention, there are many different types of Vegas. Luckily, you get to pick the type of Vegas you want to experience every time you venture to Sin City.

Southside at LIGHT Featured a Surprise Celebrity Appearance

March is a great month. With the tournament about to be in full swing, and everyone in school getting off for spring break, there aren’t many better times to be in Las Vegas than right now.

We’re also turning way up with some excellent shows planned for the near future, and Southside got a little extra during his appearance on March 10.

Todd Anthony Shaw, better known by the stage name Too $hort, came to LIGHT and gave the lucky audience a show.

rockbear-for-light-1

Too Short came with the evening’s headliner, Southside of 808 Mafia. They know each other from Atlanta, where Too $hort lived for 15 years.

rockbear-for-light-1-4

While surveying the venue, Too $hort wandered into the service well and ended up ordering a personalized cocktail: 2 shots of Don Julio Blanco on the rocks, 3 limes squeezed in (and tossed) and topped with OJ. He claims this is his favorite way of drinking tequila.

rockbear-for-light-5

Too $hort took the stage with a surprise performance where he sang a few songs, including his hit single, “Blow the Whistle.”

rockbear-for-light-7 rockbear-for-light-8

Around 12:45 a.m., Metro Boomin, also came in. He ended up DJing alongside Southside.

Our Favorite Ludacris Moments in ‘Fast & Furious’ Franchise

The “Fast and the Furious” franchise has seen an overwhelming amount of success over the years. Look no further than movie No. 8 of the series dropping on April 14 to figure that one out.

With the eighth version of this series (“The Fate of the Furious”) getting ready to drop in a few weeks, let’s take a look at one of the more underrated characters of this franchise. Christopher Brian Bridges — better known as Ludacris — takes on the role of Tej Parker in the “Fast and the Furious” movies, and he is an essential part — to say the least.

Just to further that point, and to get Furious fans pumped up for the next flick, let’s take a look at some of Ludacris’ best moments to date.

Ludacris Meets The Cameras For First Appearance In ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’

Whether “2 Fast 2 Furious” was your favorite movie of this franchise or not, Ludacris made his first appearance in the second edition of this series.

What sticks out? Well, other than the fact that Ludacris (best known for his music career up until his appearance in “2 Fast 2 Furious”) makes his big debut, all eyes were on his afro.

Welcome to Miami, Ludacris.

‘Fast Five’: When Ludacris And The Rock Showed Up

Not only did Tej come back for another installment of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was making his big debut as well as Luke Hobbs.

In “Fast Five,” Ludacris dropped the afro and went with the short-hair look. Whether you are a fan of the fro or not, the short hair was a good change of pace, and the addition of The Rock was a game-changer.

The Tank Line In ‘Furious 6’

The stakes are raised thanks to a tank coming into the scene, and Tej drops a gem explaining that little detail, as you can see in the video above.

While tanks aren’t necessarily the best weapons to go up against, one might say, it appears Tej will finally turn the tables — and drop some comic relief in the process — in the newest “Fast and the Furious” film.

Hobbs And Tej Bonding Over Cars

Not only is this a great bonding scene between Hobbs and Tej, but they also find a way to compare the love of cars to marriage. Classic.

Toward the end of the above video, Hobbs and Tej are on the verge of teaching the car dealer/auctioneer a lesson, which is cleverly foreshadowed in the beginning of the video when Hobbs asks Tej if he is thinking about stealing the cars. Tej being Tej, he ends up buying all of them, proving to the pompous dealer that he is, in fact, a “baller.”

The Scooby-Doo Line

Roman Pearce (played by Tyrese Gibson) is known as the funny guy in this franchise, yet here Tej is, putting Pearce in his place by dropping a joke — and at Pearce’s expense, might we add.

This Scooby line even got the rest of the crew to laugh — for what it’s worth.

Key takeaway: Tej and Scooby-Doo lines equals comedy gold. Sorry, Roman.

When Tej Offers To Drive

Once again, Tej is on the verge of putting Roman in his place.

Tej, as fans have seen so many times before, is not afraid to spend a pretty penny on a car, and he shows that off once again in the clip above.

To make a long story short, Roman thought his ride was the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere, but Tej just so happens to have the same car. Mr. Steal Your Car comes out on top once again. Classic Tej.

NCAA Tournament 2017: Stages We All Go Through While Watching a March Madness Game

The NFL playoffs are, for lack of a better word, amazing (the Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in America, after all), and the three other major sports leagues — MLB, NBA and NHL — provide plenty of entertainment when their respected playoffs rear their beautiful heads (and all season long, for that matter), but there is nothing — nothing! — quite like the NCAA tournament.

There is a reason why so many people call in sick for the first week of the tourney, and there is a reason why thousands upon thousands of people fill out brackets year after year, despite the fact that they know said brackets will inevitably be ripped up at some point during the dance. There is a reason why the NCAA tournament has so many names attached to it, such as March Madness, dance and Big Dance. There is a reason why some mid-majors go crazy after winning their conference tournament, despite the fact that they know a No. 16 seed, and a loss, is in their very near future.

The NCAA tournament, March Madness, is — in one word — magical. It holds so much beauty. From Christian Laettner’s famous shot to George Mason, a No. 11 seed, making a run to the Final Four to Butler making back-to-back title games to Chris Webber calling timeout when no timeouts were left, the NCAA tournament has created some of the most shocking, bizarre, pull-your-hair-out moments in the history of, well, sports.

It is the one tournament in which any team truly has a chance to win it all. It is the one tournament in which the overall No. 1 seed can go down in as early as the second round. It is a tournament that is home of buzzer-beaters, miracles and entertainment at its finest.

In the spirit of the 2017 version of the NCAA tournament being on the horizon, we have compiled stages we all go through while watching a March Madness game. Enjoy, and get ready for these March Madness stages to come raining down yet again in a few days.

Pre-Stage: First Things First, Time To Make The Infamous Phone Call

It’s Wednesday night, and the first round of the tournament (minus the play-in games that have already taken place — and blew our minds, of course) begins on Thursday. You are debating if you should call in sick now, wait until the morning of the Big Dance or fake sick (elementary school style) halfway through Thursday.

Nonetheless, when the NCAA tournament is nearing, this thought has gone through everyone’s head: “I’m just going to call in sick and watch the first round of the dance.”

Stage 1: Joy, Glee, Pure Happiness, The Life-Doesn’t-Get-Better-Than-This Stage

It’s. Finally. Thursday. It’s game day, baby. What T-shirt are you going to wear?

What you are about to witness can’t go unseen, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Double-digit seeds knocking off tourney favorites, a shower of buzzer-beaters, future NBA stars showing off their goods out on the court, three-pointers galore and coaches screaming their heads off are about to take over your TV screen. Consider your eyes, and flat screen, lucky.

Pick your favorite spot on the couch, and start firing up those food apps, because watching college hoops is about to become your life for the next couple of weekends.

Stage 2: The Pump-The-Brakes Stage

Yes, the NCAA tournament is nicknamed March Madness for a reason — because chaos takes over the college basketball scene once the calendar turns over to March — but why am I cheering for a mid-major that is playing the powerhouse that I have inked in for a spot in the Final Four?

It’s time to pump the brakes and get those priorities straight. It’s all about winning the office bracket pool, even if it means cheering against your alma mater, right? Okay, so if you are like most college basketball fans, then you likely took your alma mater, who is making the tournament for the first time in what feels like a lifetime, to at least the Sweet 16. Still, at this point in the tournament (you know, the beginning), it’s all about the bracket. Until a loss occurs, you have the perfect bracket.

Stage 3: Halftime — It’s Time To Make Some Adjustments

If this top seed loses, my bracket is finished. Finished!

14-seed Mercer (there is an unknown team every year that makes some noise) might be the Cinderella story to end all Cinderella stories, but [fill in the blank] is my team. This squad has three future NBAers, the coach has Hall of Fame written all over him, and it is up to me, as a March Madness fan, to cheer them into the Final Four.

The stars will align, and my title pick will bounce back to a double-digit victory.

Great halftime speech. Now let’s get back to the action.

Stage 4: Denial, Denial, Denial

There’s no way this unknown mid-major is going to knock off my team. The experts said they were a lock for the Elite Eight, so how are they down by five with only 10 minutes to go in the second half?

Surely, the coach will continue to make adjustments, and the star player, who is going to get drafted in the NBA lottery, will start draining threes like it is his job. There’s no way my champion pick, who is a No. 3 seed, is going down to a No. 14 seed…

Stage 5: The I-Can’t-Believe-What-Just-Happened Stage

For a minute, you just sit there. You’re not mad. You’re just confused. You can’t believe what you just witnessed. You can’t believe a No. 14 seed not only knocked off a No. 3 seed, but said No. 3 seed was a team that you picked to win the dance. Your bracket is ruined, your hopes and dreams dashed, and there is nothing you can do about it.

So you pick up the phone and then start texting all of your friends the saddening news.

March Madness has arrived, and it is up to its same old tricks.

Stage 6: A Sense Of Understanding And Respect For The Tournament

So this is why it’s called March Madness. Because records, rankings and favorites tend to go out the window.

Yes, my bracket is ruined, you think … and only three games have been played, but everyone took [fill in the blank] to at least the Sweet 16, right? This mid-major/Cinderella/destroyer of my bracket is the real deal. My bracket is toast, but I get it — anything can happen in this tournament.
Now let’s go watch a No. 16 seed, for the first time ever, knock off a No. 1 seed. Bring on the madness and call-in-sick days!
