Rapper Jim Jones dropped $20,000 at a NYC nightclub last weekend -- buying 32 bottles of champagne ... and after that, dude hooked up his server with a PHAT ASS tip ... TMZ has learned. 

The "We Fly High" rapper took over Greenhouse on Saturday night to throw a little birthday shindig for a good friend ... and apparently, money was no object.

Jim ordered 32 bottles of Moet Nectar Rose champagne -- totaling around $20k -- and after he was all bubbled out, he stacked on an extra $6,000 as a tip.

We spoke with Jones ... who tells us "We did 32 bottles because it was my man's bday, and where he's from you pop a bottle for every year of your birth, and that's exactly what we did for him."

BALLIN'!!!!

Like some of the others are saying this champagne is $ 60.00 bucks a bottle not $625.00 dollars!!! Either that was not the only thing he paid for or he got ripped of big time!

As broke as bitches are these days, don't flaunt your riches. At least not on booze, when my family needs food...

I thought Jim Jones drank Kool-Aid and ran a "church" a while back in Guiana, even named a town after himself.

Jim Jones, TooBad you werent like the Jim Jones that committed suicide in Jones town. Did you ever think that the money could have been used for Starving children in Africa or Chldren with Aids or Homeless families? That is why you are and will always be a DUMBA$$ NEGRO

Hey maybe he should save some of that money for BAIL. Cause you know at some point this "rapper" is going to need it. Twenty percent of all rappers from the ages of 19 to 25 are in prison. No wonder people are scared of rappers.

Ahhyeah    

To you people thinking that retail champagne is 50-60... a bottle retail, and only a 3x price mark up at a club like that in New York City, you are misinformed, bottles of Veuve Clicquot, which is 44.95-50 retial, can go for upwards of 250-300 bottle in a manhattan club. Rose Moet, more money than that. It's a total waste of money, but it makes sense in NYC and how much bottles go at high end clubs.

An interesting thing I've discovered about money. The people who really have it, try to downplay how much they have. The people who don't really have it, tend to exaggerate how much they have.

I hope this dumb idiot had a nice time up in the club because a year from now, he'll be living in a refrigerator box and wiping my windshield for a quarter, wondering "why don't my manager call me back?" These rappers are all so stupid, maybe they should consider getting some sort of education.

This is what happens when morons go to a club and pay insanely high bottle prices and think they are "playas".

Moet Nectar Rose isn't even very good, so the best he could do is brag about getting ripped off.
