Keys took to her Twitter account on Wednesday (Nov. 9) to post a video of the occasion and to give a holler to her DJ alter ego saying, "Big shout to my girl @MrsDJAK47."
In the clip, she kicks off her set with Black Moon's 1994 track 'I Got Cha Opin.' Keys wore a fitted cap and military inspired jacket decorated with pulsing lights as she switched to Gangstarr's 'DWYCK' then 'T.R.O.Y.
