Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Ciara, Future, Keri Hilson, & Lil Wayne Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend

From Las Vegas to Miami, the stars celebrated the unofficial kickoff to summer with parties across the country during Memorial Day weekend.

Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose invaded Palms Pool in Sin City on Friday, Big Sean turned up the heat on Saturday, and Chris Brown capped off the weekend with Sean Kingston on Sunday. On the Strip, Keri Hilson popped bottles at LAX, Pharrell performed at Pure, and Ciara held court with Future and J. Cole at 1Oak. Future also hit the stage with Flo Rida to perform their collaboration “Tell Me When You Ready.”

Across the country, Lil Wayne got it poppin’ with French Montana while celebrating the release of Excuse My French at Miami’s King of Diamonds. Young Jeezy took over the strip club on Saturday, ordering 100 bottles for him and his 150 guests.

Wale and Nicki Minaj escaped the madness of Miami and Vegas and partied in New York. “Stop bothering me @Wale,” tweeted Nicki, who collaborated with the MMG rapper on “Clappers” off his upcoming album The Gifted.
