At the intersection of music and technology, Derrick “D-Nice” Jones has built a career as a respected musician, photographer, and web-developer. D-Nice grew up in the Bronx, Hip-Hop's birthplace, and emerged as a rapper and producer in the late 1980s. DJ Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions mentored D-Nice as a teenager and offered him a place to develop his talent alongside rap legend, KRS-One. He began to expand into production, producing The Stop The Violence Movement’s number 1 single “Self Destruction,” and later working with Queen Latifah and Kid Rock on their early albums.  Among his many musical projects he also contributed to the soundtrack for the film, “I'm Gonna Git You Sucka.” DJ D-Nice has performed at events with/alongside Stevie Wonder, Diplo, , Santigold, Big Sean, Drake, Trey Songz, Mariah Carey, Ne-Yo, Will Smith, Billy Joel, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Prince, Queen Latifah, Russell Simmons, Wiz Khalifa and many more.  

Twenty-five years ago Keenan Ivory Wayans unleashed I'm Gonna Got You Sucka on the world and a comedic classic was born in this parody of blaxploitation movies, wherein a black hero wannabe reunites former black heroes from the 70s, to help him get revenge on Mr. Big. Written, directed and starring Keenen Ivory Wayans, I'm Gonna Got You Sucka features noteworthy Black actors from the blaxploitation era including Jim Brown, Bernie Casey, Antonio Fargas, and Isaac Hayes. Chris Rock, Kadeem Hardison, Ja'net Dubois, John Witherspoon, Damon Wayans and Clarence Williams III, are also featured. Join us for a fun-filled tribute to a wayward classic.
