The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas welcomes Grammy Award-Winning Rapper Kid Cudi to the Boulevard Pool on Friday, Aug. 23.
Prior to Kid Cudi’s imminent launch into super-stardom, the Brooklyn-based rapper was already signed to Kanye West’s label, G.O.O.D. Music, in 2008. It was that year’s single, “Day ‘n’ Nite,” that took Cudi’s rise to fame from a walk to a run, and marked the rapper as one of the year’s most sought-after artists overnight. Having sold more than two million digital downloads with “Day ‘n’ Nite,” Kid Cudi amassed a devoted following, laying the groundwork for his first full-length record release, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, in 2009. A year later, the sequel, Man on the Moon, Vol. 2 re-established Cudi as a game-changer. Bringing a modern twist to the genre, Cudi has remained a musical innovator by experimenting with styles not often heard in rap music. Kid Cudi’s third full-length release, Indicud, was released in April.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features artists at the forefront of the touring world and emerging artists that will inspire the next musical movements coupled with spectacularly-designed, technology-driven venues. The excitement of live-music and sports action spills onto the casino floor from Book & Stage, an upscale sports and entertainment lounge, while live DJs fill the rhythmic and vibrant hot-spot BOND with the best in house-music. Finally, The Chandelier, a dramatic inhabitable three-story architectural wonder, created by 2 million luminous crystals, houses three unique bar experiences: high-energy hot spot, sophisticated cocktail retreat and inviting lounge. Perched high above the Las Vegas Strip, the Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night.
