On December 19th, we celebrated the holiday season once again with our friends at LTD+ and a gang of New York City’s finest party people. Danny Brown and GrandeMarshall brought the raps, DJ Mustard (on the beat hoe!), Just Blaze and Nick Catchdubs held it down on the 1s and 2s, the whole A$AP Mob was in effect, and it was another festive notch in the FG events belt. Watch the recap vid above and check out some flicks from Brook Bobbins after the jump (full gallery here). Read More

Ain’t no party like a Fool’s Gold party… we celebrated five years of label-dom in style during CMJ weekend, taking over one of the Converse Rubber Tracks Live nights at Music Hall Of Williamsburg and bringing a bunch of our friends along. The legendary Ghostface Killah headlined alongside A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis (who brought out Trinidad Jame$ and what felt like half of Atlanta onstage), World’s Fair (who did the same for NY with Flatbush Zombies and Tanboys), Nick Catchdubs, Troy Ave, Chase N Cashe, Ryan Hemsworth, the latest member of the FG fam GrandeMarshall and more.
See it all live in the video recap above, and check some great galleries of pics from Gretchen Roibinette at Brooklyn Vegan (our favorites after the jump), Loren Wohl at MTV Hive, Brook Bobbins and Focus Camp. Read More

We brought DAY OFF to Los Angeles last month, throwing our long running NYC bash in Cali for the first time ever. Suffice it to say… it was crazy! The whole fam was in effect, with A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo, Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and more performing in front of a few thousand of LA’s finest party people. And when it was all said and done, we threw an afterparty with the likes of Dave1, RL Grime, Carnage, Franki Chan… Good times!
Check the recap video above, and check some photos from the Cobrasnake (two galleries!), Shadowscene, Say Cheese And Die, The Source, Shout out to Adidas, Scion, iheartcomix, The Well, the Shrine Auditorium and everyone else who came together to make the first DAY OFF LA so fun! See you again next year… Read More

Check out the recap vid above and some pics after the jump (more galleries on the CP Facebook and at The Untz). Read More

Once again, the talk of the town for Labor Day weekend in NYC was our annual, free DAY OFF bash, going down this Monday, September 3rd at the City Winery Backyard. This all-ages downtown staple features a who’s who of party heroes from the label’s friends and family: Danny Brown, Brothers Macklovitch, Just Blaze, Flosstradamus, Flatbush Zombies, Ricky Blaze, Nick Catchdubs, Party Supplies, Telephoned and Been Trill, with guest spots from A$AP Rocky, Theophilus London, World’s Fair and more.
The cops shut it down right before headliner French Montana took the stage, but we kept it moving with the NIGHT OFF afterparty a few blocks over at Westway, featuring DJ sets from Brenmar, Anna Lunoe and DJ Wonder, hosted by Donnis. Check out full photogalleries from Kirill Was Here and Brook Bobbins, with some of our favorites after the jump! Read More
