Put a hold on that Spring cleaning and usher in the heat with the power team that brought you the “BEING” series. We’ve swept the stage with Biggie, Beastie Boys, and Dilla. Now roll out the carpet on May 18th for Being 2Pac and don’t forget to bring your block party spirit!
The triple "D" trio (DTR, Damon Bodine, and DBGBs) is hosting the fourth installment of the karaoke-style tributes to hip-hop’s legends, featuring local musicians and fans performing for a cause. This round, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world's largest voluntary organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research.
Following his diagnosis and now remission of Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer, Damon has dedicated his life to promoting blood cancer awareness. Embarking on a variety of fundraising endeavors, his goal is to raise over $100,000 in the next 24 months. But the money is only part of the movement: “They've shown me that this cure will not exclusively come from laboratory research and testing. Rather it begins in the hearts and minds of all of us who wish to see a safer and more prosperous world for future generations.”
