Nelly celebrated part two of his birthday weekend as the host of Tao‘s Post Fight party. The Grammy award winner and his party enjoyed Tao’s signature dishes including Crispy Shrimp, Wok Sirloin, Sea Bass and Kung Pao Chicken in the restaurant before making their way to the nightclub.
Nelly first dropped in the DJ booth to greet the crowd before he joined his friends at a VIP table on the dance floor. He thanked everyone for being there stating, “Shout out to Tao who always shows Nelly love.” He then went to greet Red Sox player Carl Crawford’s at his table since the two had become friends the previous night at Marquee.
Confetti rained over the nightclub as Nelly was surprised with a cake and a special rendition of Happy Birthday by the crowd. DJ Vice laid down the beat with some of Nelly’s hottest tracks including “Ride Wit Me,” “Grillz” and his newest single. The club went wild when Nelly gave an impromptu performance of “Hot in Herre.” The Southern rapper then asked the crowd to help him with his verse on “Where Da Party At” exclaiming, “I know Tao got me.”
Nelly got on the microphone several times throughout the night to greet fans. He even stopped in the DJ booth a second time. The celebration lasted late into the night as DJ Vice took party-goers through a timeline of Nelly’s biggest hits.
