1/ST PREAKNESS AT HOME – A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND LIVESTREAM EVENT TO CELEBRATE THE PREAKNESS STAKES

D-Nice continues to burn baby burn like disc inferno. And his hot streak doesn’t show any signs of being extinguished anytimeA soon. We consider D-Nice a Hip Hop Legend, Classic EMCEE, Producer and DJ. His insanely popular “Club Quarintine” is an instant Classic! Well deserved from a pioneer who paid his dues perfecting his craft including the work that he has done with KRS ONE and  releasing his own album the Instant Classic LP “Call Me D-Nice” in 1990.
