T.I.'s new strip club opens tonight; why 1,600 strippers auditioned

T.I.'s new strip club V Live opens tonight with a "birthday bash." It's sure to draw a crowd - and it may well draw cameras.

grand opening

As Jill Vejnoska reported earlier, some 1,600 lovely ladies auditioned for stripper positions . It turns out, they might have a shot at further glory. The audition was filmed for T.I.'s reality show, according to a well-placed source.

T.I.'s no stranger to the screen and he's quite the multi-tasker. He's appeared in locally filmed movies including "Ant-Man" and "Ride Along 2." Future projects include upcoming "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" and "Krystal," which recently wrapped filming.

So it only makes sense for T.I., who's a partner in the club opening tonight, to combine a stripper audition with reality show filming, right?

Here's a promo video for the club. It's not exactly SFW so govern yourself accordingly.

T.I.'s new club is running things by the book.
