The legendary drummer paid homage to DJ D-Nice on Thursday night.
In the midst of nationwide self-isolation, DJs have put the rap game on their backs. After DJ D-Nice’s momentous Club Quarantine social distancing sessions, many have taken to Instagram and other platforms to keep the party going. On Thursday night, Questlove streamed a personal four-hour session on The Roots’ official YouTube channel. Watch the full stream above.
The set included a brief homage to the Native Tongues. The NYC supergroup produced hip-hop legends like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Monie Love, and Queen Latifah. Many members of the collective went on to join the Soulquarians, of which Questlove was a founding member.
In addition to Quest and D-Nice, notable producers like DJ Premier, Just Blaze, 9th Wonder, and Mike Dean hosted live sets over the weekend. Superproducers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz even took the free time out to reignite their beat battles from the summer of 2018.
The playlists from D-Nice’s initial Club Quarantine sets are available for streaming on TIDAL. Subsequently, D-Nice signed an exclusive deal with Spotify to release Homeschool Playlists in the meantime. Stay tuned for more live sets and beat battles as they arrive.
