The Anger Management Tour is rollin' to Atlanta with a bill full of red-blooded fellas -- Eminem, 50 Cent, G Unit -- and CL's Spidey sense tells us they're gonna wanna know where to blow off steam post-show.
Fortunately, many tour performers are well-versed locals that can guide out-of-towners like Em and Fitty on where champagne corks and coochies are poppin' (though we have a feeling that Fitty, who filmed the "Disco Inferno" video in a strip club, already has a frequent visitor's card for classy places such as Clarkston's Strokers).
Most of these guys have traveled the world and they need not only a lap dance but also the lap of luxury to be impressed. So CL has invited three artists -- Lil Scrappy, Mr. ColliPark and Pitbull -- to describe spots still droppin' it like it's hot, and to imagine how they'd design their own velvet-roped pleasure palaces. If you can escape the mad-packed parking lot after-party, here's some places to peep in hopes of catching the hip-hop elite off the clock:
Lil Scrappy, Atlanta's gold-selling head bussa, aka the "Prince of Crunk": "My favorite [real club] is Magic City. It's right in the heart of [Atlanta], there are a lot of beautiful women there from all over the world, and they get down! But I would name my club the G Spot and it would be in Zone 3, south side. I'd have a bunch of swings in there, shaped like a heart. I'd have beautiful women greet you at the door with a free dance; after that, you gotta pay. I would play something for the white people, black people, Puerto Ricans -- everybody. I'd also have 'Amateur Lesbian Night,' where two women just get together and whichever couple did the nastiest, most freakiest thing would win."
Mr. ColliPark, legendary Atlanta-based bass DJ/producer who has worked with the Ying Yang Twins, David Banner, Lil Scrappy and Pitbull, among others: "My favorite place to hear my music right now is the Blue Flame Lounge off Bankhead [Highway]. It's raw, like if you're at your house with a good system in a closed room so everything is in your face. I'm not a kid anymore, though, so my club would be like the Ying Yang Twins' "Wait" video -- real grown and sexy. Imagine a room with beds and sofas in all black, but maybe add a sushi bar. We'd call it Club Intimate, and all the music isn't too loud, and more for socializing -- along the lines of "Play" by David Banner. But this club isn't for everyone -- it's like Studio 54 where you gotta look the part, put off a sexual aura. And there would be champagne -- lots of champagne."
Pitbull, Miami-based MC who has worked with Atlanta's Lil Jon: "I'm more into sexy clubs than sex clubs. In Miami, I really like Bongo's -- Gloria Estefan's place -- because it's got this tropical atmosphere full of good-looking, well-dressed people with lots of energy. If I were designing a spot for other people, it would be real 1980s old-school Miami, like one of the clubs in Scarface, and I would put it in Little Havana by the river so you could pull up in your car, boat, however. Part would be an indoor/outdoor pool, and I'd play Spanish music, hip-hop, anything with that energy. And you gotta step up your game to get in -- I wouldn't have any VIP because everyone sexy enough to get in would be good enough to party together. I'd call it the Revolution."
