A bartender on TikTok recently posted about a time a couple years ago Kanye West came into the strip club she works at. She says he didn’t book a table, want to see the dancers, or even care for a drink at the bar.

Instead he talked with the bartender for about 3-4 hours about all his beliefs. Remember, this would have been pre-presidential run.

After he got everything out, he thanked her and left her a $15,000 tip.

I hope for her sake, she didn’t have to split that tip with anyone else. But also, I’m in the wrong industry. I would totally listen to Kanye talk for hours if it meant I could pay rent a year in advance.
