Jay Z

Strip Club of Choice

Sues to Ass-Slap Impostor

3/11/2014 8:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


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.

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.

Lil' JayZ, Lil' Outkast, and Lil' Ludacris are just going to have to take their teensy-tiny Lil' Peens and go play with Lil' Gucci, Lil' Bow Wow, Lil' Jeezy, Lil' Ying and Lil' Yang.

Rappers and their strip clubs. Maybe spend some of that "make it rain" money on your 15 kids or 15 baby moms? Nah bad for their street cred.

Jay-z should just work on his nursery rhymes.

That's nothing new. When I worked at the Ugly Monkey in Indy, a bar in North Carolina stole our name and our gimmicks. We decided to offer them a contract to pay us royalties instead of suing them. That's probably what Magic City should do.

Cheapens the brand? Is that possible for a strip club?

Are the vaginas of a better caliber than those at the copycat Magic City?

Jay Z has absolutely NOTHING to do with this story... but I have noticed that several pro-kardashian sites are attempting to connect his name to a few negative stories/stereotypes. Tearing one man down in order to build up a fraudulent couple who think they are royalty... not happening Harvey/Mike/TMZ.

I think it's pretty common for strip clubs to use the same names over and over with no affiliation

Magic City was a household name to those who go to strip clubs int Atlanta in the 80s, long before any of the guys mentioned in the story were old enough to get in.
