Future Explains How Strip Club DJs Create Hip Hop Stars For GQ Magazine


Some people go to make it rain, but aspiring rappers go to Magic City in hopes of getting their music played and making it big time. That’s the power the influential strip club has in the hip hop industry. And nobody knows that more than Future, who first got his start at the legendary club. Check out the video inside! 

Welcome to Magic City, a legendary strip club in Atlanta where dreams are made, whether for the dancers seeking fame and fortune, the rappers using it as a platform to the big time, or the ballers making it rain.

In this new video documentary from GQ and Condé Nast Entertainment, award-winning film maker Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles) takes us into the heart of Atlanta’s sexiest music factory. Magic City isn’t just a strip club, it’s an A&R test ground. Record labels regularly try out new songs and artists at Magic City. If it’s a hit with the clientele, labels will commit to the artist, work the song at radio, etc. Magic City is where you will find the next big thing in music.

Our “Magic City” documentary features interviews with Future, Cool Amerika, Lil Magic (artist manager), Kingpin (artist manager), Stuey Rock from Atlanta’s Hot 107.9FM, DJ Esco (Future’s official DJ) and more.

The full-length uncensored version will be available this Friday on GQ’s channel on THE SCENE, the premiere digital video storytelling platform from Condé Nast Entertainment.
