One of hip-hop’s notable DJs throws a quarantine party for 100K viewers
Celebrity DJ/producer/rapper/photographer D-Nice decided to shed some light and positivity during the COVID crisis the best way he knew how - by throwing a virtual nine hour dance party that he dubbed “Home School”.
The party last Saturday night attracted more than 100,000 viewers who grooved together to hits that ranged from Earth, Wind, and Fire to Notorious B.I.G.
Instagram Live’s split feature, which allows other people to appear on the feed, gave D-Nice followers a chance to enjoy “guest appearances” from other celebrities such as John Legend, Common, and Big Daddy Kane. Even Michelle Obama eventually ended up attending and getting a shoutout from D-Nice - as well as presidential candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
D-Nice was overwhelmed by the response and turnout and posted the following on his Instagram the next day:
Best known as a member of the pioneering Bronx hip-hop crew BDP, D-Nice was one of the producers of the anti-violence anthem "Self-Destruction".
