Jim Jones

I Dropped $20k on Champagne

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'!!!!

Have any of you people on here ever heard of a TAX WRITE OFF?? These performing artist sometimes make that much just to show up at a club and host a party for 2hrs! They are often being paid to show up at clubs and perform at shows all year long even if they haven't dropped a hit in years! this 26K he spent at the club was equivalent to you or I dropping $135 on a night out with friends. Some people are just on another level that you can't identify with.
