The artist, who skyrocketed to fame and became the face of the ’90s, was joined by a posse of friends including Flavor Flav, Jonathan Scott of “Property Brothers” and his brother, HGTV host JD Scott, boxing champion Zab Judah, the cast of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and more, as audiences jumped to lively renditions of his signature hits, which he said are “great memories, like photos.”

The rapper and current star of “The Vanilla Ice Project” on DIY Network closed his set with words of wisdom, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery,” before joking that he was the oldest teenager in the audience.

Every Thursday at LAX Nightclub, DJs spin favorite hits from the ’80s and ’90s, with several memorable Throwback performers hosting select nights throughout the year. Guests are encouraged to don their favorite fashion from the era to bring back the ambiance of the unforgettable decades.

Upcoming artists include Salt-N-Pepa’s DJ Spinderella (Feb. 4) and Young M.C. (Feb. 18).
