Better grab an umbrella

They don’t really make it rain in strip clubs here in St. Louis, but this summer I gotta go down to Atlanta for some shit, and I’m hoping to finally experience this phenomenon firsthand, if not actually participate myself. Trust that I’ll be documenting my experiences either way.

Only thing is, now I’m kinda worried I might get shot. Last summer, I brought you the story of the killing of T.I.’s bff Philant Johnson, which may or may not have been making it rain-related, and now I see there’s been yet another high profile incident connected with the trend.

Last weekend was NBA All-Star Weekend out in Las Vegas. As I mentioned on my own site, accounts of the weekend sound like some shit right out of The Source Awards circa 1995. All told, something like 400 people were locked up during the course of the festivities.

At a club where Nelly and some of his piff pocketers were kicking it, there was a shooting that was said to involve someone making it rain. Hater that I am, I assumed that this was Nelly; but, as it turns out, it was some football player named Pacman Jones.

I should have known it wasn’t Nelly when the reports noted that the incident invovled a few hundred dollars being thrown in the air. As much money as Nelly has, making it rain with Bol’s monthly salary here at XXL could be detrimental to his career. I know I wouldn’t look at him the same.

According to reports, Pacman Jones threw the money in the air and then got pissed off when one of the hoes started picking it up. He grabbed the back of the ho’s head and started slamming it into the stage. Apparently the ho hadn’t waited long enough to start picking up the money.

My guess is either that a) this was that one bitch you see in the strip club who’s obviously like 49 years old and has had more than one kid by c-section and maybe he wanted some of the better-looking strippers to get his money, or b) he wanted to make sure everybody in the club had enought time to notice he had thrown three hundred dollars in the air before some skank shoved it in her hoo-hah.

This video, sent in by my Madison, WI Bureau Chief Hastings Cameron, breaks down what happened eyewitness news-style:

I Agree Completely, He Really Shouldn’t Have Made It Rain [Deadspin]

Supposedly, a bouncer broke up the fracas between Pacman and the ho (I feel so silly even writing about this), which prompted Pacman to threaten he was going to kill the bouncer. They left the club, but then came back a couple of hours later, at which point one of Pacman’s weed carriers shot the bouncer. The bouncer is now paralyzed from the waist down.

In the video, which looks like it’s from the evening news in Nashville, they interview some black chick who says she’s been in strip clubs on several occasions when making it rain-related incidents have broken out. It’s not made clear whether she’s a dyke or a stripper, but my guess is that it’s the latter. I thought she made a good point though when she said that if Pacman Jones didn’t want that woman to pick up his money, he shouldn’t have made it rain.

    This making it rain thing is the stupidest thing that i have ever seen in my life. These dickhead ass niggas are throwing thousands of dollars into the air for wat??? Me personally i dont like strip clubs. I cant see my self giving a bitch my money to watch her shake her ass. That shit just aint me. So this whole making it rain shit is stupid to me.

  • randomname

    OMFG !!!!

    “I’ts called making it rain”

    And to make matters worst, this nigga is throwing his money on strippers and then dont want them to pick it up… LOL. How fucking stupid is that. Thats like saying you dont want to get aids, but your only bagging bithces that are walking out of the aids clinic.

  • boing

  • EReal

    “making it rain related incidents”

    That sums up this shitty waste of a post. Seriously, who cares. The news media are such a joke, they’re so outta touch.

    Oh, and Bol, I dont know if they even make it rain in teh ghey strip clubs, so you might be the first.(Nullus)

  • theSTATUS

    Man, making it rain just ain’t what it used to be.

    Used to be you could hit magic city for the “free free” with Blue (A-town stomp man from the DAMN video), and casually pick up more money than you had spent the evening; leaving with a profit at the end of the night.

    I could see if Pacman saw a dude picking up money slyly in the above manner, but isn’t the money meant for the chickadees anyway? They got tuition to pay damnit!

    They should re-nickname him “Sprinkle”, as in Make It Sprinkle.

    SMH,

  • thecollinb

    God bless making it rain with my unsubsidized student loans….it up’d my street cred in the d boy strip club and i was fortunate enough to be around when niggas started shooting up the joint….it practically made me a hood legend….and i had no out of pocket expenses.

    “a) this was that one bitch you see in the strip club who’s obviously like 49 years old and has had more than one kid by c-section and maybe he wanted some of the better-looking strippers to get his mone”
    ————————————–
    Now thats one classic and true line right there. Pacman probably thought that his $1.00 werent good enough for a 49 year old stripper. What I think was that he thought he was playing football with his money and went for the interception (the stripper being the WR) and when the stripper went to get the money he wanted to intercepted and knock her out like any DB would.

  • sATaLyte

    Magic City mondays, thas all I got to tell you, it’s no joke playboy.

    Though you may want to watch out, cuz TI’s studio is right around the corner from that place and they prolly would be strong up in there on any given night.

    But hell there’s so goddamn many to choose from!

  • Moe Real

    I support making it rain. It’s another form of wealth distribution. Pacman Jones is like a modern-day Robin Hood or Fidel Castro. Except for the punching a woman in the face bit. Good post Boltron.

    Bol,

    It was $80,000, not $300. What an idiot Pacman is.

    As some know, I am a huge Bengals fan, so I am delighted that it wasnt ol’ Chris Henry again. Although its plausible that he is sitting at home jealous that he hasnt “made it rain” in the past few months.

    I feel bad for the bouncer though. Thats pretty damn tragic. He probably has flashbacks every time that terrible Fat Joe song comes on.

  • texasleen

    man that shit is funny

  • E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA

    It was 3 bills, u mad if you think a man threw up 80 grand for the hell of it. Even Tyson watched his money better then that. I could be wrong but real talk the reporter said “300 in 1′s”

  • Tyler

    Yo man, Bol U got the story all wrong bro. . Yea’ Pacbitch made it rain but it was about 80g’s coming down dawg. No the hoe didn’t pick it up but the manager or pimp of the hoes pick’d up the “rain” and put it into a trash bag and left the spot wit’ the loot. I guess from the accounts Pacbitch thought the pimp was pickin’ up the money 4 him since Pacbitch was reported 2 say. . “He only threw the money as a visual effect”. . What a dumb nigga, but nonetheless the police went 2 said managers hotel room and arrested him with the 80g’s and a couple of expensive watches. . Oh yea’ and in between all ‘dat Pacbitch told his homeboy 2 make like a pryro and put fire 2 everything in ‘dat place but Pacbitch. Bol, U get paid 2 do this at least get your story right.

    Pacman aint been charged, but since I live here in Nashville, I will say dude never should go to the club. Between spitting on broads, getting punked by bouncers and not to mention getting your ride snatched because its tied into dope dealers, I would suggest hiring new weed stashers, because the Titans Bout to let that ass loose, you know these crackers aint goin.

    It was $80,000. That reporter is old News. Dont you people watch sportcenter?? Bol is about a week late with this story. Pacman is probably gonna whoop that ass for insulting him with a “$300″ figure. He wants the world to know that he is ballin out of control. Apparently it was supposed to be just a stunt and none of the money was supposed to be given away. Still though…..what an Idiot.
