The Spliff Star Awards: The (2)Dope Weed Carrier’s Year-End List

blame it on Meka December 31, 2011

While we shared our official lists yesterday, Shake and I thought it would be a good idea to give a little insight into what our weekend weed carriers listen to during their time off. So without further ado, the Spliff Star Awards!

Justice Equality Supreme…

I’ll be honest: despite bringing Justice (formerly known as KNOWxONE) into the fold two years ago, I still have no idea what he looks like, where he lives exactly or how old he is. Hell, for a minute I wasn’t even sure if it was a “he” at all. Regardless, the dopehouse’s resident crate-digger (who also is a part of the clothing company FITTED) provides his top picks. – Meka

Miss Peas…

The lone female of the (2)dope crew, Peas is a cocaine rap-loving, In-N-Out burger-eating, unassuming type that will recite the lyrics to “Give Up the Goods (Just Step)” while shitting on Tony Romo in the same breath. Here are her choices. – Meka
