LAS VEGAS (Sept. 3, 2018) – Influence, The POOL at The LINQ was the Las Vegas Strip’s Labor Day weekend destination with headliners Tori Brixx and Coolio. Brixx performed Saturday, Sept. 1, while Coolio took the stage Sunday, Sept. 2, when he delivered a high-energy set of fan-favorite hits from his impressive catalogue. Among the songs he performed were “1, 2, 3, 4,” “C U When U Get There,” and “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Coolio was later spotted at the Flamingo GO Pool, where he spent the day enjoying beats under the Las Vegas sun.
As a model, actress, beauty and fashion influencer, and social media star, Tori Brixx boasts three million followers on Instagram alone. As a female DJ in a male-dominated industry, Brixx has worked closely with Amber Rose, with whom she signed in 2016. Brixx’s musical styling combines upbeat tracks with old school jams and even EDM, satisfying the taste of every fan. She returned to Influence after performing to a packed house over Memorial Day weekend earlier this year.
Coolio initially took over the world rap scene through his release of “Gangsta’s Paradise,” which won a GRAMMY in 1996 for Best Rap Performance, Solo and was nominated for Song of the Year. “Gangsta’s Paradise” would also be featured on the Dangerous Mindssoundtrack and movie. It sold over six million copies and was Billboard Magazine’s number one single in 1995. The world recognition led to his music being featured in several major motion pictures, including “Space Jam,” “Clueless,” “The Big Payback,” “Panther,” “New Jersey Drive,” “The Jerk Boys,” “Eddie,” “Half Baked” and many more. He also composed the theme song for the popular TV series “Kenan and Kel” on Nickelodeon.
