To complement our first ONE WORD exhibition, where we’ll be highlighting NAS, we decided to drop a line of T-Shirts using the tag DJ 2-Tone Jones developed as the identity for it. To check out the range, which includes women’s tees, v-necks, and more (courtesy of the Red Bubble platform) click here and for more info about the ONE WORD: Nasty exhibition click here.
One of the best hip hop parties to surface in DC – King RJ (DJ 2-Tone Jones and DJ Roddy Rod) present the Versus party, where (every Tues.) they go head to head spinning tracks from 2 iconic rap groups and or artists.
Let me be clear – this is a party for hip hop heads not just “oh I like rap an music shit.” If you’re a fan(natic) come through and they’ve even got the $5 “recession special” for that cover charge.
The last one was Meth vs Red, this Tues its Jay-Z vs Nas and they’ll also have Aniekan (of AM Radio) doing a live mural. Get ready folks, this weekly party is next to blow….
