Nineties rapper Akinyele has been doing a LOT since the 1990 hit song "Put It In Your Mouth." The rapper turned businessman recently became the majority owner in the King Of Diamonds gentleman's club. And he's looking to EXPAND - onto Ocean Drive in South Beach. According to reports, the KOD clubs with the South Beach location will be worth more than $100 MILLION.
But last night local South Beach residents held a community meeting to discuss their concerns.
Akinyele attempted to attend the meeting to address the locals concerns but he was not allowed to enter and present his side, since the gathering was open to residents only.
Akinyele told the Miami Herald, “I feel like this is just a modern-day lynching that’s happening here, and that’s the elephant in the room . . . We’re just a black-owned establishment, and that’s what they can’t come to the realization with.”
The rapper turned entrepreneur is facing some REAL challenges. City Attorney Raul J. Aguila has vowed to shut down any establishment the moment it operates as a strip club or violates any of South Beach’s strict zoning laws.
