Oakland. Featuring a veteran member of the legendary hip hop group Jurassic 5, DJ Nu-Mark, the Bay Area producer, and DJ, J-Boogie, and many other local DJs, this first edition of the East Bay party will be a destination not to be missed.

Nu’sToy Set caught the eye of late night talk show host and producer James Corden, prompting an invitation to be the in-house DJ on the hit television show Drop The Mic hosted by Method Man & Hailey Baldwin.
