Walking on Pins: The Hallowed Ground of NY Rap Nightlife
Nightclubs in the Big Apple are hallowed ground for hip-hop’s most heated confrontations. Where they once stood as the place where you could see the “it” rapper of the moment perform live, is probably now a restaurant chain, garage, or some property where the rent is too damn high. Word to Jimmy McMillain. What happened to these former hip-hop landmarks? For starters, somebody probably got shot, stabbed, or the venue just plain lost their liquor license. The most famous of clubs to close in recent weeks is W.i.P., and Greenhouse. The bar room brawl between Chris Brown and Drake’s crews shuttered the doors of one of the most vibrant places to hear the city’s best DJs, and ogle the opposite sex. There hasn’t been a closing of this magnitude, under these violent circumstances since the ’90s and early ’00s. Though unlike hot spots Kit Kat Club and Pizza Bar, Greenhouse and W.i.P., haven’t turned into a garage or eatery (thankfully!). We hear they’re actually going to reopen very soon.
