On Fridays, Firecracker would take over the second-floor lounge at L.A.'s Grand Star Jazz Club, filling the room with quality hip-hop and wall-to-wall dancing. Similar to L.A.'s famous Do-Over parties, Firecracker attracted an artsy, rap-centric crowd all through the aughts. For a hip-hop head looking for your favorite sounds all year round during the Complex Decade, this was the spot.
