Mar 31, 2016 10:54 AM

LAX Nightclub at Luxor Hotel and Casino will continue to build its acclaimed Throwback Thursday series with upcoming headliners Naughty by Nature and Coolio. Naughty by Nature, who is touring the country for the 25th anniversary of the release of its eponymous album and hit lead single, "O.P.P.," will take the stage on Thursday, April 28. Coolio, who celebrates the 20th anniversary of his bestselling single, "Gangsta's Paradise," will perform on Thursday, May 5.

"The enthusiasm for the artists that we're bringing into the LAX Throwback Thursday series has been incredible," said Luxor Executive Director of Brand Activation Anthony Olheiser. "As that excitement continues to grow, we look forward to bringing in more and more of the artists from the '80s and '90s we all know and love."

In 1991, Naughty by Nature became a household name with the release of its self-titled album and the contagiously catchy hit single, "O.P.P." The song, which preceded other chart toppers, including "Hip Hop Hooray" and "Feel Me Flow," has stood the test of time and remains a definitive favorite of the '90s. The GRAMMY Award-winning group is currently touring the country in celebration of an impressive 25 years of creating popular anthems that bring fans to their feet.

Rap superstar Coolio began his "Fantastic Voyage" in 1994 with the release of his debut solo album, "It Takes a Thief." The following year, he made music history when he recorded "Gangsta's Paradise" for the "Dangerous Minds" soundtrack with R&B singer LV. The song was met with commercial and critical acclaim, earning Coolio the GRAMMY for Best Rap Solo Performance in 1996. With more than 5.7 million copies sold, "Gangsta's Paradise" ranks as one of best-selling singles of all time. Coolio can currently be seen in the web series, "Cookin' with Coolio."

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.

On Thursday, April 7, hip-hop pioneer Tone-Loc will take the stage. The legendary artist is known for the hit songs "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina," which became the biggest crossover rap singles to date when they were released in 1989.

LAX Nightclub is open Thursday - Saturday from 10:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. For more information, visit Luxor.com.
