Rapper Tyga celebrated his 23rd birthday by hosting, performing and partying at Tao in the Venetian on Saturday night, and contributing photographer Al Powers of Powers Imagery was onsite at the hotspot for the celebration.

Tyga was greeted by the sounds of DJ Vice as his friends and he made their way to the nightclub. Shortly upon arrival, he was presented with a three-tier, gold-trimmed birthday cake and a server dressed as a tiger in a cage, which had partygoers cheering as Vice wished him a “Happy Birthday.”

Tyga, dressed in a black baseball cap, long-sleeve black shirt, red pants and red-and-black sneakers, took the mic soon after and performed his hits, including “Rack City,” “Faded” and “Make It Nasty.” Also at Tao: “Extra” correspondent Ben Lyons and friends dining at the restaurant before heading upstairs to the nightclub.
