There’s been a little light in the midst of stay-at-home orders and social distancing. Earlier this week, NYC’s DJ D-NIce started up Club Quarantine, a play on his traditional #HomeSchool live DJ set on his Instagram account. Doing a live mix from his kitchen, D-Nice somehow has gotten the wildest collection of celebrities to pull up and listen to him mix.


During his Saturday night set, the likes of Michelle ObamaBernie SandersJoe BidenOprahRihanna, Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez and more pulled up on D-Nice’s IG, just as Drake, DiddyErykah BaduJanet Jackson, and others pulled up on Friday night.

It’s more of a second act for D-Nice. As a rapper, he broke through with Boogie Down Productions and released the popular single “Call Me D-Nice,” in the early 90s as well as producing the posse non-violence anthem  “Self Destruction” in 1989.

Even NASA has pulled up to tell D-Nice and his audience of 85,000 people and growing that this party was out of this world.
