I turnt the nightclub out of the basement

from Kanye West (Ft. Charlie Wilson) – Bound 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

We in the building, we still keep it basement

Kanye’s mere presence is enough to turn a dingy little basement into a full-blown nightclub. His sheer fame and energy lifts the room into a pandemonium.

A level deeper: Kanye went from a career in the basement (the hip-hop underground) to a career of chart-topping singles. And even his hip-hop songs (like this one) will likely get spins at the nightclub.

Also a continuation of the Fight Club reference. In Fight Club, Tyler Durden started his fight club out of a dingy basement.
