I’ve actually never heard this term before, so this is new to me. The Redbull Music Academy’s H∆SHTAG$ docu-series takes a closer look at this sound, which quotes from the likes of Main Attrakionz, Flatbush ZOMBiES, SpaceGhostPurrp and more.

The description alone is classic. “Figueroa ho stroll?” Hilarious. Thanks, Pitchork.
So as you all know it’s the holiday season around the country. As such, with the holiday season come a shitload of parties and events for people to get drunk and grind inappropriately on members of the opposite sex at. The dopehouse will be participating in some of them (as well as throwing our own); check them out down bottom.
In an effort to cleanse themselves of the impurities they’ve unleashed over the years BET throws these “concerts” as some kind of spiritual balance (or, at least that’s what I gather from them). Check out more performances – including the reunion of SWV – down bottom.

The last time these guys let me spin at one of their functions, cops came and shut it down 30 minutes into my set. Needless to say, I don’t know what the hell these guys are thinking having me do it again but I’m not going to to claim responsibility for any havoc that’s caused from my turn on the turns.
For those interested, hit that email to RSVP, then leave your morals at your crib. See you all there.
This past Saturday I attended BarrelhouseBKLYN’s second annual summer event, this time held on a rooftop in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, where I was asked to spin a quick set as a last-minute guest DJ. Within thirty minutes of my turn on the turntables, things had gotten so crazy/ignorant that cops surrounded the block and shut the entire party down hours before it was supposed to end.
This is the end result of said madness. Props to Ashani for letting me rock, and apologies for getting the whole thing 86′d. What can I say, gangster rap made me do it.
I was asked to be a part of this a while back; here is the end result…
In the next installment of the Philly Music Mag x Cash & Caviar Blogger’s Always Prosper Docu-series, they speak with one of the founders of 2Dopeboyz, Meka. He describes how he and partner, Shake, got started as a media entity and what it takes to stay in the game.
I made mentions about love, false idolization and dropping a deuce throughout my convo, but I see it didn’t make it past the cutting room floor. Thanks again, Blair, for everything.
The homie Blair made me one of the subjects for this viral series way back when it was cold as hell in New York; that clip is set to drop next week.
In the first part of Philly Music Mag and Cash & Caviar’s Blogger’s Always Prosper Docu-series, they speak with founder & creator of Concrete Loop, Angel Laws. She touches on what inspired her to start Concreteloop as well as the pro’s and con’s of running a popular blog.
I hope you guys get inspired by Angel’s story because I know with any dream that you have it takes alot of dedication and patience. Major shout outs to Philly Music Mag for helping me bring this docu-series to life and everyone who participated in this project.
