ManMan Savage is young Atlanta’s next star, mashing dread-swinging charisma and mosh pit energy with real life grit. “Takin Shots” is his Fool’s Gold debut, following a series of self-released ATL favorites and appearances as a mainstay on the scene – that’s him starring in Future’s “Trap N****s” video and hitting the stage with ILoveMakonnen on his “Loudest Of The Loud” tour. “Takin Shots” is a clear leap forward for ManMan, whose screaming delivery (over a banging, post-apocalyptic beat from Chris Fresh of 808 Mafia) simply cannot be ignored. Download it on iTunes or stream it on Spotify!
Leaf’s brash empowerment anthem “Drama” gets a cinematic music video courtesy of directors GOLDRUSH, who provide a perfectly pulp-y NYC backdrop for the young Fool’s Gold superstar and her MBM crew to wreak havoc on haters.

After teasing you with date and city announcements (and selling out earlybird tickets before revealing a single act), we’re psyched to release lineups for this year’s edition of FOOL’S GOLD DAY OFF events, hitting Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Miami and Austin starting August 29th.
Label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs have once again curated North America’s most culturally resonant festival. Who else brings together street rap royalty Meek Mill (currently riding high with the #1 album in the country), UK grime icon Skepta and underground superstars Flatbush Zombies? Who can showcase EDM favorites Flosstradamus and Alison Wonderland alongside nu-millennial MCs D.R.A.M. and Post Malone? Top it off with fresh label signings Rome Fortune, ManMan Savage, Bosco, Leaf, Hoodboi, Falcons and Shash’U and you’ve got an eclectic and electrifying lineup, in true Fool’s Gold style.
“DAY OFF is our culture. It’s where the full scope of Fool’s Gold comes together, it’s everything we represent. It doesn’t belong to one scene or another: DAY OFF is generational. We’ve watched it grow, step by step, with pride. I can’t wait to pull some more surprises this year!” – A-Trak
Tickets for all five DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com, along with recap videos and photos from the last five years of FGDO shows, featuring Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, Juicy J, Young Thug, French Montana and many others. Read More
