More likely to be found trekking through the woods than cruising the streets rockin’ fly rims, 2 Dope Boys in a Cadillac are individually known as Johnny MacRae & shayne avec i grec. Together, MacRae and avec i grec have been a member of the 2005 Victoria slam team and the 2009 and 2010 Van Slam teams, as well as being a long time organizer of Victoria’s Tongues of Fire. They were also the 2010 Van Slam champion. Driving under the influence of Bob Holman’s tequila, these 2 Dope Boys have been described as “challenging,” and are said to “push envelopes wherever they are.”
