The Tunnel was many things to many people: for house heads, a place to dance to DJs like Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia; for young scenesters like Michael Alig and RuPaul, a place to see and be seen; for Rudy Giuliani, a nuisance in the way of Chelsea gentrification; and for New York City hip-hop fans, a place to get wild to the latest Jay-Z and B.I.G. records, as played by DJs like Cipha Sounds, Big Kap, and Funkmaster Flex. Tonight, that last group of clubgoers gets their day, as Flex and crew — joined by Canarsie’s DJ Riz, one of the quickest mixers in the city — come to B.B. King’s for a late-night reunion.
