Rapper are writing off their strip club expenses on their taxes. Rappers like Jim Jones, Bizzy Bone, Game, Lil Flip, and Daz Dillinger.
Bizzy Bone tells TMZ, “I’m giving charity to females who need their light bills paid. So, of course, that’s a write -off. You write off your kids, don’t you?”
The Game tells TMZ, making it rain “is good for business and promotion that comes with the lifestyle of a rapper. They bump our music in a strip club, so me giving the girls a little bit of change to shake their ass–that comes with the business. Everybody wins.”
Daz Dillinger says, “Hell yeah. I’m going to see about getting my taxes fixed as soon as possible.”
Lil Flip says he’s actually deducted strip club expenses.
There are two possible ways a rapper can justify deducting strip club tips as a business expense according toTMZ:
“1. ENTERTAINMENT EXPENSES. These costs could be deducted if the rapper is entertaining a client, customer or employee and the expense is not “lavish or extravagant.” So it might be hard for Drake to justify dropping 50K in a club, but another rapper who lets a grand fly would have a much better argument.
2. ADVERTISING OR PUBLICITY. These expenses could be deducted if they are “reasonable … and are directly related to [the rapper’s] business.” Funny thing … a lot of rappers say making it rain is something they have to do to build their image so people will buy their records, so as crazy as it sounds, they may have a leg to stand on. “
