While some celebs are hosting quarantine concerts, DJ D-Nice is DJing. If you haven’t heard Nice is keeping the party going on Instagram Live. The legendary rapper and celebrity DJ, real name Derrick Jones, held a nine-hour concert on Instagram Live Wednesday from his Los Angeles condo to entertain fans during the quarantine.
Hoping to put his pandemic-weary audience into a dancing mood, D-Nice played a mix of hip hop and R&B classics but also made time for some smooth soul. The concert has since been dubbed “Homeschoolin’: Social Distancing Dance Party.”
And it’s been lit. From John Legend to Dave Chappelle celebs have also been logging on and requesting songs. He said he wanted to do the concert “out of love for y’all and getting through these times.”
