The latest FOOLCAST features nothing but productions from Cardo, the peerlessly funky young producer who helped craft Wiz Khalifa’s smoked out sound on the beloved Kush & OJ and Taylor Allderdice mixtapes, and is gearing up to release his debut Fool’s Gold EP, Everything I$ Gold.
Cardo’s production resume reads like a Who’s Who of hip-hop’s rising stars, and his FOOLCAST shows off 90 minutes of our favorites from his discography. It’s equal parts gangsta soul music, futuristic synthesizer trips, and unstoppable 808 bump, an awesomely region-less hybrid inspired by DJ Quik and Pimp C classics but rightfully belonging to one dude alone… Cardo on the beat!
