Dave East and Styles P are also playing a hometown show together on October 17 at Irving Plaza, and all proceeds will benefit Hoodies for the Homeless, "a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and cultural movement that uses music, fashion, and art to bring awareness to the issue of homelessness, and inspire community participation through the collection of hoodies at live music events." Tickets go on sale today (10/4) at noon.
