Attention all hip-hop enthusiasts and DJ Cassidy fans: get ready to be thrilled! The unveiling of  the highly anticipated dates of DJ Cassidy’s iconic “Pass the Mic,” residency indicates one of the hottest summers in Las Vegas history

This year, Cassidy will be hosting “Pass the Mic” once again. There is also an amazing roster of hip-hop greats lined up to perform. According to the press release, this event will feature a roster of the genre’s most iconic names, promising an unforgettable musical experience that will redefine collaboration and celebration. What better way to enjoy the summer in Vegas?

DJ Cassidy: A Lifetime Behind the Turntables

DJ Cassidy is right at home behind the turntables. According to an earlier interview, the artist’s love of hip-hop began when he was a toddler and has only grown stronger over time. And, having spent 75% of his life honing his craft, it is no surprise that the 42-year-old has emerged as an industry powerhouse.  It is undeniable that his hard work, determination, and natural talent have resulted in great success. This includes multiple performances at the White House for former President Barack Obama. However, DJ Cassidy’s impact during the pandemic,  truly solidified the magnitude of his art and passion. His ability to use music to bring joy and uplift spirits amid global turmoil was unparalleled.

DJ Cassidy’s “Pass the Mic” Residency: Historic Las Vegas Experience

In 2022, Cassidy announced the end of his pass-the-mic pandemic series and TV specials. Variety reported that after hundreds of passes, the final installment would air on Oct. 4, following the BET Hip-Hop Awards. But there was no need to worry because Cassidy would return with more to move the crowd.

Live Nation and Caesars Entertainment are pleased to present the “Pass the Mic” Residency. Steve Rifkind, the founder of Loud and SRC Records and a well-known music mogul, is producing this event, which will take place on July 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, and 20, 2024. Raekon/Ghostface Killah, Public Enemy, Akon, Jermaine Dupri/Da Brat, Too $hort, and Warren G are among the iconic names on the roster, which, as Cassidy notes, will provide audiences with an unforgettable experience that will be remembered in Las Vegas history. As he puts it,

“Just like how Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop came together in Vegas to form the Rat Pack, Ja Rule, Fat Joe, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, and I will team up to create an experience that will go down in Vegas history.”
