When T.I. is opening up a new strip club, strippers come out in force ... as in 1,600 strong lining up to prove their worthy of a pole position.
The rapper and his partner, Damon Cobbs, are launching a V Live in Atlanta later this month, so they held a job fair -- of sorts -- a few days ago. Recruiters were looking at several criteria beyond dancing skills.
We're told a well-rounded butt, toned body and tight abs put most candidates over the top, and of course ... great personality was a must.
Check out the army of high-heeled, thong-baring hopefuls who showed up -- and keep in mind only 100 of these ladies were selected. Strippin' ain't easy.
