Chris Brown / Drake Fight

W.i.P. Nightclub

Loses Liquor License

breaking news

0614_getty_chris_brown_drakeFrom now on, the only bottles flying at W.i.P. nightclub will be of the non-alcoholic sort ... because officials in NYC have officially suspended the club's liquor license.

The New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) ordered the booze ban last night, citing "ten separate assault and altercations beginning on March 11 2012, and leading up to a large brawl at the club on June 14, 2012" -- the night of the Drake vs. Chris Brown fight.

The SLA says it has hit the club with 17 Alcoholic Beverage Control Law violations ... including drug activity (twice) ... lack of supervision ... using the name "W.I.P." without SLA authorization ... and  "becoming a drain on police resources."

According to the SLA, the ban is "effective immediately ... no alcohol can be served or consumed on the premises."

Following the brawl, the club was shut down by the NYPD ... now it seems highly unlikely the place will ever open its doors again.

The hip hop world gets a lot of slack for glorifying violence – from turf wars to silly fights in clubs and stuff like that. Unfortunately, a lot of time this detracts from the music, from amazingly talented people who still believe it’s all about the music and people who believe in giving back to society. DeVyne Stephens comes to mind; the guy’s a freaking master who has worked his way up from nothing to become the CEO of Upfront Megatainment. He’s worked with some of the best in the business from L.A. Reid to Usher, Alicia Keys and Ciara but what really stands out is his passion for giving back.
DeVyne’s done some amazing work with the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, raising awareness about this disease that is so prevalent in the African American community. It afflicts 1 in every 500 African-American births yet few people know about it or how it affects the lives of people with the disease. DeVyne has been involved with the One Community One Cause Campaign designed to educate the public about the disease and help raise funding for research. DeVyne’s an example to follow and the hip hop world needs more like him. Follow the great work he does with the people at SCDAA at http://twitter.com/scdaaorg
