Miami is one of the best getaways in the United States. You and your friends can find year-round fun in the sun, with plenty of opportunities for culinary excellence, pampering and world-class party atmospheres. It’s a city that tempts even the biggest of stars — and when we say “big,” we mean extra large.
Basketball-legend-turned-DJ Shaq brought his Fun House event to Miami Music Week two years in a row, and last March, he made extra time for hangs with his friends NGHTMRE and Lil Jon. The trio had just released its collaborative single “Bang,” and of course they had to use Miami to shoot the video.
“It was incredibly amazing to be able to spend time with Shaq and Lil Jon in Miami during Ultra week,” NGHTMRE tells Billboard Dance. “We did a lot of random things, and I’m glad someone was there to document it. I think my favorite thing was either the staring contest with Lil Jon, or having to literally jump on Shaq to get him out of bed. I’ve looked up to these guys for such a long time, so it was a hilarious experience — 16-year old me would have been very proud.”
The quirky, cartoonish and surprisingly wholesome weekend was captured on video, so we can join NGHTMRE, Shaq and Lil Jon as they ride around in a Ferrari, throw down at the club, stuff their faces with confetti and put cucumbers on their eyes.
“Working with the Larry Bird of EDM, NGHTMRE, plus the legendary Lil Jon was amazing,” Shaq says. “Those two are like brothers to me, and we all had a blast shooting.”
Lil Jon said he had a great time filming the thing, and how could he not? Catch the good time vibes in the official video for “Bang” below.
