Las Vegas has long been seen as an oasis; a special place in the desert where real life melts away and is replaced by the finest in leisure, entertainment, and accommodations. Those who haven’t made their way to the city in recent years might be unaware of its diverse array of offerings in live music. Included are the classic, elaborate stage shows from generational pop talents, sure. But it’s hip-hop acts that are taking over, transforming Vegas into a must-visit spot for rap fans. Just this summer alone, you can catch Migos’ residency at Drai’s Nightclub, Tyga at JEWEL, and Lil Jon at Hakkasan.
