Rapper Lil Jon held court Friday night at swanky strip club E11even Miami. He and his crew were in for after-hours partying, taking over a few VIP tables in the main pit area.

We asked if he took advantage of the club's notorious private rooms, but alas, no, he didn't really have to. “There was plenty of eye candy strutting around his table,” says our spy.
