in an excerpt from the interview, the So So Def founder talk about Luke inventing the idea of a “Black strip club”, saying, “The story goes so deep that in Atlanta, all I know is strip clubs, right? And I don’t know Atlanta to not be a place where we don’t have a strip club.” Dupri continued, “[Uncle Luke] was going to strip clubs before Black people. He actually invented Black people going to the strip club, and I don’t think in hip hop we ever talked about this, ever. He invented Black people going to the strip club in Miami. Because I asked him, I said, “In Miami,” I said, “How was the strip clubs in the ’80s?”
