Popular Memphis Strip Club “V-Live” Declared A Nuisance, Shut Down Following Rapper’s Shooting Death

A popular Memphis, Tennessee strip club–V-Live–has been shut down after a local up and coming rapper was shot there and later died, according to reports.

Derrick Harris, more popularly known by his stage name, “RichLord”, was shot at the club on June 10th, and died on June 25th at an area hospital.

Reportedly, RichLord’s shooing was the second of two homicides in 15 months at the club, which Memphis officials cited as reasons they sought a court order that allowed local and state law enforcement to shut the club down this morning.

Police also executed a search warrant and allegedly found guns, including an AR-15, drugs, and more than $35,000 in cash inside the club. Officials also allege the club was selling alcohol without a license, according to Action News 5.

At a press conference, a police commander referred to the club as a “haven for criminal activity”.

However, no arrests were made, and no charges have been filed “as of now”, the county prosecutor said at the press conference.

V-Live was reportedly a preferred destination for out-of-town, nationally-known entertainers whenever they slid into town, including homegrown Memphis rapper Yo Gotti, who hosted his yearly Birthday Bash there.

According to a flyer on the club’s Facebook page, this year’s Bash was scheduled for tonight.

No word on if, where, or when the new Bash will take place.
