1,600 would-be strippers try out for T.I.'s new Atlanta club

From music to acting, Atlanta's own T.I.'s always got something interesting going. Exhibit A: His latest business venture, V Live, the new strip club he's set to open on Friday at 1271 Marietta Blvd N.W.

There's not gonna be anything half-you-know-what about this place. Literally. When and his partner Damon Cobbs put out a casting call for dancers a few days ago, reportedly 1,600 applicants showed up (another source says2,000) . TMZ obtained some video which showed rows and rows of women sitting at tables being, uh, briefed on filling out paperwork.

It also included some snippets of scantily clad aspirants showing off their assets by responding to commands that basically consisted of "turn around" and "walk and turn around."

Clearly, it's not as easy as you'd think. Reportedly only 100 women made the final cut.
