Video of a DJ booth being helicoptered across Miami while the DJ PERFORMS!


I wouldn't have believed it myself if I didn't see it. Longtime DJ and hip hop legend, D-Nice, recently took on an incredible feat by rigging a DJ booth to a helicopter, stepping into the booth, and performing while being flown across Miami! The acclaimed DJ and producer ran the 12-minute show, an advertisement for Hennessy Black. which was designed by Neptune Productions, a special event technical services production company based in Los Angeles.

Talk about extreme DJing! :)

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT D-NICE:
D-Nice became a Boogie Down Productions’ DJ after the death of Scott LaRock (the man who discovered him), prior to group’s second album, By All Means Necessary. His first production was actually "Self Destruction," the single released by the Stop the Violence Movement. The project, put together by KRS-One and the DJ, featured Big Daddy Kane, Doug E. Fresh, and MC Lyte.

Born Derrick Jones, D-Nice left BDP in 1990, after the Edutainment album, to go solo. "Call Me D-Nice," released in 1990 on Jive, featured a pair of Billboard rap-chart hits in "Call Me D-Nice" (number one) and "Crumbs off the Table" (number 17). Unlike KRS-One, his lyrical content was rarely politically charged, but "Glory" took a look at the black man's role in the Civil War. The less-successful "To tha Rescue" followed the next year. After that, he took on occasional production duties for the likes of LeShaun, Nuttin' Nyce, and Hi-Five.

Today, it appears that D-Nice's DJ Career is on a high - kudos!
