King of Diamonds: Ten Best Rap References to Miami's Most Notorious Strip Club

When it comes to rap music, King of Diamonds is like guns, weed, and sex. It's everywhere.

Atlanta might be Strip City, but KOD is the king of strip clubs, and rightfully so. Almost every rapper, from 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane to Lil B and Nelly, has mentioned this Miami nudie mecca in a song or two. Or three. Or four.

This summer, New York City investors bought the club for over $6 million, which sounds about right. After all, they weren't just buying a gentleman's club. They were buying the keys to the castle.

Given the club's notoriety, we here at Crossfade decided to do the dirty work of digging up the ten best rap references to King of Diamonds. And if there's anything to be learned from this list of songs, it's that being told "you could work at KOD" is, in fact, a compliment and your chances are very high, especially if you are a rapper, of finding love in da club.
