An Atlanta strip club made popular courtesy of rap stars like Jay Z and Ludacris is reportedly set on taking down its competition located out in Chicago.
Details of the sticky situation have surfaced across the Internet today (March 11).
The Atlanta strip club made famous by Jay Z, Outkast, and Ludacris wants a pound of flesh from a Chicago club that has jacked the name. ATL’s famed Magic City strip club just filed a lawsuit claiming a namesake club in Chicago has insinuated the two joints are connected … but they’re not. The Atlanta club owners are indignant because they’ve created a huge cache in the rap community, where stars like Gucci Mane, Bow Wow, Young Jeezy and Ying Yang Twins have referenced Magic City in their songs.

Magic City’s claim is the name confusion could lessen the club’s value.
The original MC wants to shut down the knockoff, claiming it cheapens the brand and confuses consumers. Thing is … any consumer who thinks they’re in Atlanta but are actually in Chicago … well, they’re probably so wasted it doesn’t make a difference. (TMZ)
Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J previously acknowledged how much more acceptable strip clubs were in modern days.
“It’s a club now. It’s not like, “Oh, we’re going to strip club.” It’s “Oh, we going to the club.” It’s a strip club, girls dancing naked in there, we hope. We going to have fun, as well. We’re going to kick it, pop bottles, enjoy ourselves. That’s what life is all about. It’s so short, and so many people are stressed out about stupid sh*t. I know there’s a lot of ups and downs in people’s lives going on right now, but have some fun.” (Complex)
Back in 2012, rumors of popular Miami strip club King of Diamonds heading to reality television surfaced.
Forget Love & Hip Hop, reality TV is about to get turned up to a ratchet level of a zillion if this show really comes to cable. Supposedly a “major” network has picked up a reality show based on the working of Miami’s infamous King of Diamonds strip club. This is the same spot where Weezy and Rozay love to make it rain on the reg. “This is the story… The story of the money, the girls, the people, the fame and the love. Taking a page from HBO’s hit series CATHOUSE, and FULL THROTTLE, MAKE IT RAIN will be an amalgamation of docu-drama and sexuality, but at the very heart of the piece is a real story. [Owner] Terry managing a thriving business and juggling his other business ventures. At the same time, being a father figure to his employees, giving advice, coaching, paternally guiding some of the girls, making sure that his team of managers (the four horse men) and his self are on the same page, keeping his “A” list celebs clients, music entertainers and athletes happy…and doing all of this as a happily married man with a family of his own!” (Miss Info TV)
