Lil Uzi Vert, DJ Stretch Armstrong and more graced the stage of Fenty’s first-ever quarantine party.
Rihanna is hosting a “Fenty Social Club” social distancing party right now over on Fenty’s Instagram.
For the first time ever, the Roc Nation artist has put together features appearances by Lil Uzi Vert in addition to the legendary DJ Stretch Armstrong. Also on the bill are DJ Kitty Cash, DJ Pedro and UK rapper Octavian.
If you tuned in you peeped Uzi turning up to “Myron,” “Lotus,” “Futsal Shuffle 2020,” “XO Tour Llif3,” and “Money Longer.” We were able to check out the beginning of DJ Stretch Armstrong’s set where he shouted out Q-Tip and also played numerous classic cuts by Notorious B.I.G. and A Tribe Called Quest.
Over the past few weeks, popular acts in the industry like Lil Jon vs. T-Pain, Ne-Yo vs. Johnta Austin in addition to The Dream vs. Sean Garrett. These battles have provided time to reflect on some of the greatest hits over the years. Some have been hilarious and created memes (Ne-Yo vs. Johnta Austin), and others have also been highly competitive (The Dream vs. Sean Garrett). It all started with DJ D-Nice’s “Quarantine Club” broadcast which garnered over 100,000 views during one set.
If you’ve been keeping up, you’ve noticed Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation recently donated a $4.2 million grant alongside Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The funds will directly affect domestic violence victims in Los Angeles. Prior to this large donation, the Clara Lionel Foundation also sent $5 million which went to nonprofit organizations in the U.S., the Caribbean, and Africa to aid frontline workers and marginalized communities.
Head to Fenty’s official Instagram to check out the “Fenty Social Club.”
