Here’s the deal, party people. Since today is obviously an important one in American history, I wanted to do an interactive, continuing post that everybody can participate in. All you have to do is take a photo of yourself voting – or in line voting. Or receiving one of those stickers that say “I Voted.” Or you doing a prison-style shoot while holding your unmarked ballot. You get the idea. – and after, shoot me the picture via my the Twitter (or drop a photo link in your name portion of c-section) as well as letting me know the state you voted in, and your photo will be posted as well. Let’s show that we’re all not about shit-talking and snatching free music from the web.
Similar to our (2)Dope BBQ events, the (2)Dope Holiday Party (For Charity) is designed to be its winter equivalent. So, how about one last hurrah from the dopehouse (with our co-conspirators FLüD Watches, LRG, YouHeardThatNew‘s LowKey and award-winning host Toronto’s Sir LanceLot) that everybody and their (legally aged) cousin can attend? Friends, family and even enemies of the dopehouse are more than welcome to partake in free giveaways and good music (from yours truly and Stylus Award winner Wristpect) all for charity tonight, starting at 9pm. So what if you have to go to work the next day?
By now, you’ve seen this flyer splayed on the side of the site, and you know the details (December 11th at Manhattan’s SOBs hosted by YouHeardThatNew‘s LowKey and award-winning host Toronto’s Sir LanceLot with music provided by myself and Stylus Award winner Wristpect, free giveaways, whoopty wham). Now, I’d like to talk a bit more about the organization the (2)Dope Holiday Party (For Charity) is for, Toronto’s The Remix Project.
The Remix Project was created in order to help level the playing field for young people from disadvantaged, marginalized and under served communities. Their programs and services serve youth who are trying to enter into the creative industries or further their formal education; The REMIX Project provides top-notch alternative, creative, educational programs, facilitators and facilities. Their mission is to help refine the raw talents of young people from across the GTA in order to help them find success as participants define it and on their own terms. The Remix Project’s vision is to become an internationally recognized destination for recruiters from post-secondary institutions and corporations looking for fresh and exciting young talent and leaders. You can find out more about the history of The Remix Project right here.
So come through, drink, dance, be merry and grab some free shit while you’re at it, and know that it’s all for a great cause. You can either cop your tickets at the door or here at TicketWeb. We hope to see you there.
As you know, the dopehouse isn’t just about music, video games and taking pot shots at Ray-J at any given day. When we did our West Coast (2)Dope BBQ this past summer the original plan was to have a summer event for New York as well, but due to time constraints we were unable to make that happen. Nevertheless, the plans to have both a West and East Coast (2)Dope event is still in effect but will now take place in the summer and winter, with the first A (2)Dope Holiday Party (For Charity) event kicking off December 11th at Manhattan’s SOBs hosted by YouHeardThatNew‘s LowKey and award-winning host Toronto’s Sir LanceLot with music provided by myself and Stylus Award winner Wristpect. The proceeds* from the party will benefit Toronto’s The Remix Project and there will be free giveaways throughout the night as a sign of our appreciation. Let’s all have fun for a good cause, people. You can also cop tickets here at TicketWeb. We hope to see you there.
* = And when I say “proceeds” I mean it. Not “$.05 from every dollar” bullshit either.
… coming December 10th. New York, it’s your turn. More details to come.
The dopehouse’s monthly party returns tonight, this time celebrating the website launch of HotMop Films. I will be one the turntables, while the NMC‘s LowKey will be on the microphone. Yes, I know it’s the temperature of a NFL final score in New York, but that shouldn’t stop you from prying yourselves off your computers and having a social life. See you there,
PREVIOUS: A (2)Dope Holiday Party (Recap)
The dopehouse will be in T-Dot in a few weeks to, among other things, present Big Sean live in concert alongside Def Jam, G.O.O.D. Music and ILuvLola.Net. Those interested in tickets can hit the jump for that information, and you can stay tuned right here for your chance to win tickets. And yeah, we’re gonna be pre-gaming beforehand also. More information on that to come.
The dopehouse takes Canada. More info to come.

The first (of what I hope to be many) (2)Dope Holiday Party was a resounding success, and many thanks to everybody who helped put the whole thing together: FLüd Watches, Ill Banger, Pool Vodka, Cookies-N-Cream. Thanks to everybody from the good folks of Complex to Dallas Penn, from eskay to Young Sav, from Ricky Blaze to Sheek Louch and in between for assisting, attending, dancing and quaffing the whole night.
Check out more pictures down bottom. You can also head to Cookies-N-Cream or FLüD’s spot for more shots.

People of our nation’s capitol, the dopehouse alongside Kenny Burns will be taking over the Layla Lounge tonight for a night of partying and bullshit. Fell like partying and bullshitting after a long week? Join us there.
… coming December 9th. More details to come.

The last time I was in DC I spoke at a panel, then went on a wild ride with Dallas Penn that included bar-hopping, late night Korean food and two guys scrapping it out in the middle of the street after a club night. I wonder what’s going to happen this Thursday, when the dopehouse (alongside Kenny Burns) takes over Layla Lounge for a night of partying and bullshit.
Then on Saturday night (Saturday-Saturday-Saturday!!!) I’ll be the guest spinner at the HG Lodge in Seattle, Washington. I’ve never been out there so I expect nothing but freezing weather and a bunch of Starbucks. If you’re from any of these places, feel free to stop on by. Hope to see you all there.
