I did own the club for a little bit. Seriously! Dupri: Thereâs no place in the world like Magic City. I owe it all to the people. I said, âLook, Strawberry, youâre gonna have to act like Iâm gonna beat you up real bad.
But you had to battle. Barney: It was an opportunity type of thing. . I used to put the record on and pour the booze. Strawberry, Destinyâyou would go to the club specifically to see these girls dance. In 1989, Barney opened a second strip club, called Magic City II, in Birmingham, Alabama.
So, it took a long time. Iâm kinda jaded with the amount of money, people trying to floss and flex against other people. We were teenagers, so weâd have to try to sneak in to the little, smaller strip clubs. âWait a minute, Platinum,â he said. Thatâs how I gauge it, because I have three kids.

It killed the garter belt. Michael âMagicâ Barney (Magic City founder): I used to go in [to strip clubs] with a suit and tie and watch them beat people and drag them out. We were running back and forth from state to state. Usher came in and just threw money at everybody. Big Boi: In strip-club etiquette, if you go in and theyâre just running your songs back-to-back, you give them a couple hundred dollars or something.
The King Center should have been pushing their stuff like that, but people werenât pushing it like we were pushing it. However, Magic City the business is owned by Paradise Entertainment Group, run by a man named Marvin Brown, who owns and operates Magic City per a lease agreement with Barney. We all were family, but you know how it gets when people get locked up.
He taught them the game. Barney saw the power of celebrity after two professional athletesâDeion Sanders and Dominique Wilkinsâbegan to frequent Magic City, bringing with them more customers, who wanted to mix with their idols. "Believe it or not, the chicken wings at Magic City are the best I've ever had," Manziel said Sunday when replying to a tweet about the news.
Lou Williams’s visit to the Atlanta strip club known as Magic City has been one of the funniest and most talked about stories surrounding the NBA bubble.
All the girls had long, pretty gowns back then, from Jean and Elaine, the house moms.
We were closed on Sundays in Atlanta but open on Sundays in Birmingham.
“We can celebrate the restart with those wings,” he responded. Obviously, this is a huge no-no. I know Iâm not the first person that started it, so Iâm not taking credit: Walk in the club, go to the DJ booth, meet the DJ, talk to the DJ, leave the DJ a tip, and ask him to play your record.
Now, that might seem like payola. Over the past 35 years, the strip club that was the brainchild of a toner salesman named Michael Barney has become a full-fledged cultural phenomenon, a place where, as Jermaine Dupri puts it in our oral history, âyou can go on Monday night and stand beside a millionaire, the biggest thief in Atlanta, the biggest drug dealer in Atlanta, the police, and one of the biggest rappers or R&B artists in the worldâall in the same room.â . Barney: Iâve seen the sleazy all around the world, where you can go in the room, have sex with the girls. L.A. Clippers guard Lou Williams was allowed to leave the NBA bubble in Orlando to attend the funeral of a family friend—but has admitted he also went to a strip club.

DJ Outlaw 3000: One of the biggest songs we had that still is a strip-club anthem is âPussy Poppin.â And the Nelly era had taken flight back then. DJ Outta Space: Iâm aware that people want to come in and get their music spun.
DC: When Deion lost his first playoff game as an Atlanta Falcon, he was so distraught. Good God almighty. Because the girls know. It is de rigueur. He would drop down the big screen, and you saw videos going on with the dancing. I believe that rebounding is a blessing, and I just believe that Iâm truly blessed. DC: Nah, dude. At my funeral, donât cry. She was the one who made us superstars. You never let another DJ on your turntables because he will take your shit. He shared with everybody.
Barney held his workers to high standards of behavior, professionalism, and beauty. People would go in Magic City and fall in love. But thatâs just something you did out of appreciation. Five pairs of shoes. I didnât get hired at V until â91; this had to be like â90.
Cameron: I donât really frequent strip clubs like I used to. Barney: It was an opportunity type of thing. And thereâs $30,000 on the floor, but youâd better not try to pick it up.
