Ludacris asked the crowd, “What’s Your Fantasy,” at LIGHT, while Iggy Azalea got “Fancy” with fans at DAYLIGHT. The weekend party continued with hip-hop star Plies with fellow artist Slim Thug also in attendance Sunday, May 1.

Making his first performance at the club since his residency in 2018, Ludacris lit up the stage at the popular Las Vegas nightclub wearing sunglasses, matching black leather pants and a jacket trimmed in flames.
