Strippers are stars.
Just ask 305 rapper and Rick Ross collaborator Ice Billion Berg.
Like any straight-up gentleman with a lifetime platinum membership at the gentleman's club, he's got mad respect for the inner strength, physical prowess, and work ethic of the average exotic dancer.
"It's a way a lot of women pay their bills," Berg told Crossfade during a summer strip club Q&A. "A way a lot of women feed their kids. Get themselves through school.
"I really support the hustle," he explained. "Because I'm a hustler."
"I give the utmost respect to the ladies out here doing their thang."
So naturally, as a standup dude and a big-time backer of the adult entertainment arts, Mr. Billion is planning to celebrate his b-day at North Miami's favorite nudie spot, G5ive Lounge.
There's gonna be nonstop bottles of Hennessy, Patrón, and Dom; heaping helpings of delicious shrimp cocktail and collard greens; and probably a big, beautiful, booty-shaped birthday cake. Still, like all y'all, Ice Billion Berg is most excited about the G5ive's 100-plus superstar strippers.
In fact, homey's so hyped that he's seeking out new recruits on the Internet. "Looking for some pretty ladies," Berg just tweeted, "to put on my guest list!"
So holla @Iceberg305, girls. And do your thang.
