According to The Hollywood Reporter, the event at the vice president’s residence in Washington, D.C., had more than 400 people in attendance. Hip-hop’s most notable figures, including Lil Wayne, Common, Jeezy, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, MC Lyte and Wale, performed their hits on the front lawn of Harris’ home.

The 58-year-old called the celebration “the first-ever hip-hop house party at the Office of the Vice President of the United States.” She also shared her thoughts on the genre and its influence on Black culture since its inception in 1973. 

Hip-hop is the ultimate American art form,” Harris told the audience. “Hip-hop now shapes nearly every aspect of America’s popular culture, and it reflects the incredible diversity and ingenuity of the American people. It combines rhythms from the continent of Africa, from the Caribbean, from Latin America, with the sounds of soul and gospel and R&B and funk to create something entirely new.”

She continued: “And to be clear, hip-hop culture is America’s culture. “It is a genre. It is music and melody and rhyme. And hip-hop is also an ethos of strength and self-determination, of ambition and aspiration, of pride, power and purpose.”

Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, were enjoying the festivities, with the VP dancing to the music from their VP-VIP area, Variety reported. The clips have since circulated on social media, and X (formerly Twitter) users didn’t hesitate to share their opinions on Harris dancing to rapper Q-Tip’s ’90s hit “Vivrant Thing.”

“I AM TOTALLY GAGGING AT KAMALA dancing to *Vivrant Thing* at her 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop party 😭,” one user said.

“She got them high waisted eating pants on! Auntie is ready to cut up,” another wrote.

“Wait. So this was a party celebrating Hip Hop held in the home of the sitting Vice President of the United States. Is it lost on anyone else just how DOPE that is?” a third user said.

“Oh so kamala really is of the streets and about that life … love that for her,” another shared.
