He opened the door to show other DJs that this could really be a lucrative business for you if you did things a certain type of way. Now, that might seem like payola. If you get a new record and you actually get it played, you look around the room at people actually moving to it.
The girls are dancing. It becomes a test for a lot of the records in this city. You might just give them a stack of ones. Sometimes, you hit the door—boom—your song comes on. And if they show love, you show love back. Most records are broken in strip clubs. Now, the mood is more trap-heavy.
Even the girls are trapped-out. They wanna hear all the trap shit. Big Boi: A lot of the new music you heard came out of the strip club. We started testing out the songs at the strip club. Because the girls know. Tip Drill! That phrase had taken off. It was all about the Tip Drill. Barney: We have a lot of military people we mess with, and we give them cases of stuff every year.
They go overseas and come back and get them again every year. We catch soldiers at Greyhound who are heading over to other countries, and we load them up. When we see them at the airport, we give them away. We know they travel far and near.
Just stick your head in the door, and let the ass do the rest. Big Boi: Whyte Chocolate was definitely a legend. OG India, she was always fit. She was a little older, but she was just bad. Strawberry used to be one of the ones. I think he misses the part of us being ladies, because we had to be in dresses and gowns. All the girls had long, pretty gowns back then, from Jean and Elaine, the house moms. Elaine was the costume-maker. She was the one who made us superstars.
When you came in the door, we felt like you came to see us. We were the celebrities. Cameron: Morgan was my favorite. She had these two Pippi Longstocking braids, and she was the prettiest thing you ever seen. Dupri: Back when I was going at my early age, it was really about the dancers. You knew the dancers by name. You used to have Whyte Chocolate. You used to have these girls that were almost stars—before Instagram, by the way.
Strawberry, Destiny—you would go to the club specifically to see these girls dance. Now, people are just throwing money at every girl. Barney: Seeing them strut with these little teeny waists and stuff puts pressure on them. This fake hair and the fake titties, fake butt, has damn-near taken over. There are a lot of people that like what you have. Yesmeen Jiles year former Magic City dancer, author : This is what you do for a living.
There were times when I would be out in public with my girlfriend, and I would run into some of my customers. And they would be a bit confused, because I was such a great actress in the club.
They would be shocked to learn that I was in a same gender—loving relationship. Thank goodness for me that I met my wife during one of my shows, so she knew right away what I did for a living, and she supported me all the way up until it was time for me to retire.
Dupri: I used to throw the money up to the ceiling and let it shower the girls. So, what other people are doing now, I used to do it specifically just to hit the ceiling because then the money would just splatter everywhere. I threw up a thousand dollars; the ceiling would make it fly all over the room.
The money would stick to the ceiling, and the girls would stand with their feet on the couch and get their money back. I started that. DC: Nah, dude. Making it rain started at an afterparty in in Magic City. Jermaine would come every now and then, but not like that.
There was a guy named Easy. Easy was a cat from L. They had ballers back then, but Easy was special. It was so seductive. You could just feel the sexual energy in the room. Easy took bottles out of the Champagne bucket and poured it on them, and they were just wet. It was incredible. Then, he started throwing money.
He started throwing his ones, his fives, his 10s and his 20s. It killed the garter belt. There are no private rooms. Because private rooms violate the primary purpose of Magic City, which is to be seen. A sex place wouldn't bring anything but trouble, plus I wouldn't get any of the money for that sex, either. Atlanta gets referred to frequently as Black Hollywood. It is, like Los Angeles and New York, a city in which no small number of celebrities feel it is important to maintain a presence.
You're as likely to find Kanye in Atlanta as anywhere else; Kevin Hart celebrated his engagement at Magic City; Rick Ross just bought the old Evander Holyfield twelve-bedroom mansion down in Fayetteville.
Atlanta is, especially, the de facto center of the hip-hop industry, and it is Magic City—and the small number of strip clubs like it—that operates as the underground linchpin of that industry. If hip-hop were Silicon Valley, Magic City would be the place venture capitalists would loiter, looking for talent. Consider the rapper Future. Not five years ago, Future was virtually unknown.
He used to hang out at Magic City every week, back near the DJ booth. Esco started playing Future's music. Esco started playing his music a lot. Eventually Future started to dominate Magic City.
And when he started dominating Magic City, suddenly he was played on the radio; suddenly he signed a major record deal. Suddenly, Future became a guy who gets engaged to Ciara and takes her to sit in the front row at Milan Fashion Week. But at the same time, Big Mag wants no velvet ropes in Magic City, because the point here is not to separate by class. You can find anybody in Magic City, anybody. I can't think of another place in America where the one percent stand unprotected next to so many other percents at the bar.
And all those elements are held together by respect for the institution Big Mag has created, by the collective ego of a whole room full of people who are dying to be seen, and by a common fantasy—they're all making the same movie. They are also held together, Magic would argue, by the power of booty, which was Magic's first real business innovation. He began working as a salesman in Atlanta in the s. Magic worked on commission, and once he had some of that money in his pockets, he says, he liked to "run around in the streets.
It was one of those kind of motorcycle clubs. But I fell in love with strip right then. It was the first time I ever experienced strip down here in the South. I didn't know you could get naked like that.
They can, indeed, get nakeder down here than they can in many places. Strippers can be fully nude in Atlanta. And in places like Magic City, you're encouraged to be creative with your nudity. Lil Magic says, "They don't just get naked here, they get asshole-naked. You could tell me to get naked standing in this room and I might do it.
Then you'd tell me to bend over? He ran some calculations about alcohol revenues and door take. And he saw an opportunity. But I wondered: What if you had some pretty girls in the club? What the hell could happen then? He opened Magic City in with a single dancer.
But a single dancer with, as he says it, a perfect balloon butt. Then he hired a woman named Indigo. You could bounce a quarter off of it. Alas, butts are just one ingredient that made Magic City into what it is today. Michael Irvin—we were all party animals; I started to know all the wild guys. Then they all started coming in here. And Deion brought me [MC] Hammer when he was hot. And now we were starting to get a whole lot of little guys like that, and they were starting to make their moves.
I knew L. Reid back when he was married to Pebbles. Bobby Brown. And of course Jermaine Dupri. He should be where Puffy at, but he didn't have that close-out finesse that Puffy had. And Magic City was the first club in Atlanta that made them feel comfortable. Michael Jordan wasn't hanging out in strip clubs until Magic City. It was BMF. You've heard of BMF, right? Well, BMF is the greatest subject of street lore in the history of Atlanta. There are songs, books, documentaries, three-part journalistic investigations of BMF.
A man named Big Meech was its mastermind and overlord. And Big Meech did not have a discreet management style. I'm pretty sure BMF is the only major drug-trafficking enterprise ever to rent a giant billboard on a major interstate to advertise itself; if you'd driven into Atlanta in , you would have seen a sign that read the world is bmf's.
Big Meech also fancied himself a music mogul and, at the height of its largesse, made BMF into a record label; he was known for his relationship with the rappers Young Jeezy, T. What BMF really was—more than a drug-trafficking concern or a hip-hop label—was the biggest socio-cultural thing to happen to Atlanta since, probably, Gone with the Wind.
What BMF really was, was a rap song come to life. You know the world that's depicted in rap videos? Watching reams of American currency being lit on fire or blown away into the streets while he just smokes a cigar and barely notices because he's somehow achieved a new consciousness of wealth in which there is no dollar figure large enough the loss of which would be of any emotional consequence?
That was how BMF lived for real, and they liked to live that way in public, and the principal way to interface with that public was through the strip club. This was the epoch, and the city, in which the concept of making it rain was born. Up until then, people were just putting money in garter belts. But that was not a sufficient expression of how little money meant to BMF.
They had to throw it, fertilize the air with it like pollen. You get sucker punched in the face with a thousand dollars, but you laugh it off because it's so much money.
Big Meech and most of the rest of BMF went to jail seven years ago. But Big Mag still sees his business as one that operates in a world where people like BMF are your clients. It took a long negotiation to get Big Mag to sit down to be interviewed. It is not something he'd ever done before. Big Mag still sees himself as a denizen of what no small number of people described to me as a secret society. Magic City operates as a part of its own economy; as Lil Magic says, "The way some of these people throw money, you know it probably didn't come in check form.
On the stage at any one time you're going to have two to five dancers performing what they call a stage set. Take this moment on a Monday night: There's one woman hanging upside down from a crossbar that descends from the ceiling, and she's got her forearms locked with those of another dancer, who pulls herself up from the floor and kind of flips over so that the one on top can pantomime that she's performing oral pleasures on her partner.
But what this is really about is the dismount, in which the bottom one lets go all at once and drops to the floor in a split. Meanwhile a woman with long Robitussin-red hair on another corner of the stage gets on all fours, her knees spread slightly wider than her hips.
She pivots her butt into the air and then does a quick contraction of the pelvic floor, then just as quickly releases the butt backward and into a kind of rhythmic motion that seems almost self-perpetuating. It's like fly-fishing, but with a butt. San Jose Mercury News. Glenn Garvin. Miami Herald. It makes Mad Men look like a dormitory suite. The story is promising Check it out. Nov 20, Full Review….

But as the proprietor of Magic City, as a man who has, in his parlance, been running around in the streets for thirty years, it's different for Magic. Magic City, Destiny—you would go to the club specifically to see these girls dance. Magic City, we try to work in between and do as much as we can.
