Remember “Put It In Your Mouth”? 90’s rapper Akinyele is now more about stuffing his pockets. The rapper is caking big time after investing in strip clubs.
Here’s the details:
Yes, the 1990’s Hip-Hop artist known for his hit single “Put It In Your Mouth” has struck gold and this time it’s right behind the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Just last weekend, successful business owner Akinyele, opened up his latest venture known as Lollypops (with partners Cliff Dutton and Jay). The club is slated as the hottest, most exclusive adult entertainment gentleman’s club and one of the few minority-owned businesses of its kind, located at 6370 Windy Road in Las Vegas. The intimate venue is a 24-hour revolving door of flavor. “We decided to officially launch LollyPops and align ourselves during the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight weekend and I can proudly say there are now two winners,” laughs Akinyele regarding the success of his club.
LollyPops’ kick-off opening has been the new seamless attraction for alternative tourists during the past week. Akinyele, who gained a wealth of knowledge in the adult industry as a rap artist who performed in strip clubs around the country for years, began to learn the “ins and outs” of what it takes to make this format of a club a huge success. He began to invest in clubs for the sole purpose of turning an even bigger profit as a partner of club sensations including Queen of Diamonds in Miami and now a new venture called Rachel’s Gentleman Club on South Beach. “What we are doing is revolutionizing the strip club industry with both daytime and nighttime experiences in a comfortable, urban-friendly environment,” says Akinyele.
The entrepreneur also aligned himself with Sean Cummings, CEO of Show Magazine, to find the best talent across the nation, attracting the likes of showgirl superstar Tip Drill, who stopped by to pay homage to the budding club. Understanding that music moves the crowd, Akinyele enlisted the talents of DJ Don Cannon, DJ Mark Da Spot and RockStarr DJz to play a musical part of the launch of LollyPops, in addition to world renown DJ Whoo Kid serving as the resident DJ. Lollypops is the only club of its kind in Vegas to play rap music all night, catering to Hip-Hop lovers. As word continues to travel at light speed, celebrities and artists, including Ray J, Bad Girls Club’s Camilla Poindexter, Interscope Records’ LoveRance, Gary Payton, Bobby Brackins, Mistah Fab, Marshawn Lynch, Sleepy Brown, Problem, G-Unit/ZooLife’s 40 Glocc, and the Money Team, have all graced the new venue. As Vegas would have it, expect the unexpected at LollyPops, from in-house adult gaming to Pop-Up Celebrity Staff on unannounced nights. Gentlemen patrons are jokingly warned by the club’s slogan “Fellas please don’t get too close to the ladies or you will pay child support (smile).”
“We’ve been thrilled and amazed to see lines of both men and women still coming at 8 a.m. and this has been every single night, better yet morning I should say, over the past 10 days,” says Akinyele. From the wings & fish nugget baskets, to shrimp fried rice and your All-American eggs and bacon food trucks to the Bentleys, Maybachs and Lamborghinis, even the parking lot is an episodic experience of its very own. With that in mind, raking in an astounding $5 million in one week is not too much to expect when LollyPops is involved. When asked why he named it LollyPops, Akinyele laughs, saying “That’s the only way we can metaphorically say ‘put it in your mouth’ without offending anyone.”
