Page 2 of 2

Over the past few months, Demetrius has been undergoing multiple treatments and surgeries at St. Luke's Hospital in Tempe to rid his body of cancer, which has racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bulls that are artist is unable to afford.

Enter his nearest and dearest, like Blunt Club promoter and longtime art cohort Adam "Dumperfoo" Dumper. He's been busy moving heaven and earth the last few weeks gearing up for a "Save Jules" benefit at a special edition of the hip-hop weekly tomorrow night at Yucca Tap Room in Tempe, including pulling together plenty of art and donations to raffle off during the event in order to generate some serious scrilla on Demetrius.

The treasure trove includes a rare Shepard Fairey-created poster for Doug Pray's renowned turntablist documentary Scratch that was ponied up by Dumper and Jess Jordan, owner of bygone Tempe art supply joint Wet Paint, both of whom are close friends with Demetrius.
