Derrick Jones, better known as DJ D-Nice, is continuing his Club Quarantine online event for another great cause. The former rapper-turned-DJ has partnered with Will Smith, who was once known as “The Fresh Prince,” to assist people affected by the coronavirus pandemic, according to Billboard.
The popular pair have linked up to join forces in the fight against COVID-19 as Smith‘s Bel-Air Athletics has released a limited-edition hoodie. Sales of the sweatshirt will benefit healthcare professionals on the front lines fighting the coronavirus pandemic across America.
“It’s truly special to collaborate with Will and Bel-Air Athletics on this initiative,” DJ D-Nice told Billboard. “This is a unique opportunity for us to take our passion for entertainment, fashion, and connecting people, and use it to support our healthcare professionals in a meaningful way. They are the true heroes on the front lines of this battle against COVID-19.”
“DJ D-Nice’s Club Quarantine sets have become a unifying form of entertainment during this unprecedented time,” Bel-Air Athletics brand general manager, Samyr Laine, says of the philanthropic venture. “In that spirit of unity, the Bel-Air Athletics team is thrilled to partner with D-Nice on this endeavor that will support our courageous healthcare professionals as they combat COVID-19.”
The specially made Club Quarantine hoodie is available to be purchased on the Bel-Air Athletics website. The ‘party’ took place over the weekend during D-Nice’s marquee Homeschool entertainment on Saturday evening on his IG Live. Half of the net proceeds from the hoodie, priced at $75, will go straight to the CDC Foundation’s Combat Coronavirus Fund.
This follows one of DJ D-Nice’s most recent collaborations with the former first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. The party, “Couch Party: A Voter Registration Live Set” was an online collaboration with When We All Vote, Mrs. Obama‘s voter registration initiative. The event took place on Instagram two weeks ago on Wednesday, March 25.
DJ D-Nice has also partnered with Spotify to curate his own exclusive Homeschool playlist.
