With his journey taking him from the streets of Harlem all the way to The White House, Derrick “D-Nice” Jones is not only a pillar of hip-hop but is continuing to steer pop culture.
The legendary artist, DJ, and photographer has moved millions on wax, on stage, and now online with his revolutionary virtual Club Quarantine. The latter paved the way for numerous Instagram Live series. More importantly, Club Quarantine raised millions for first responders, HBCU’s, and more. D-Nice’s global influence has been acknowledged time and again including the NAACP Image Awards naming him Entertainer Of The Year, TIME magazine nominating him for 2020 Person of the Year, and EBONY magazine including him on the 2021 “Power 100” list.
After spreading hope online, he is back to making records and rocking stages. D-Nice kicked off 2021 co- curating the Official Playlist of the Biden + Harris inauguration. Soon after, he performed at the official in- stadium Super Bowl LV pre-show. D-Nice continued the year taking his talent from his sold out Club Quarantine Live at the Hollywood Bowl to the iconic Met and Kennedy Center Honors Galas. After bringing in 2022 on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, he opened at the NBA All-Star Game and helped provide the soundtrack for the 94th Academy Awards. D-Nice rounded out 2022 by headlining and co-producing both a sold out presentation of Club Quarantine Live at the legendary Carnegie Hall and making history with Club Quarantine Live as the first DJ and hip-hop artist to headline at the Opera House at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
D-Nice returned to the stage on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, kicking off 2023 as both the DJ and West Coast Co-Host.
D-Nice continues to innovate and inspire, leaving an indelible mark on the entertainment industry.
