It’s not all magazine covers and Grammy nominations for A-Trak of course. None of this would be possible without good ole fashioned party rocking. So be sure to catch Trizzy in a town near you on The Great North American Club Crawl Tour, scratching its way from Canada to Cali and all in between. Full info and advance tickets here.
Seeing that a lot of DJs/producers/gear heads read this site the FG gang and I decided to start up a monthly gadget edition of Food Gold for those of you (and we hope there are many) who want to know about kitchen tools of the trade.
You have my word there won’t be any frumpy tricknology like your Aunt’s “bagel guillotine” or “pickle picker“. We are going to stick to the most crucial tools, the things you will buy once and use for the next ten years across many, many meals.
Short and sweet: if you are eating a lot of fruits and veggies you should get a mandoline. Read More
The Echoplex was the place to be last month, with the Fool’s Gold crew taking over the Check Yo Ponytail party for a night of raps, revelry and BRUISER MOTHERFUCKIN BRIGADE! Danny Brown headlined a night that also featured Kid Sister (backed by Sinden and J2K of Flosstradamus), Main Attrakionz, Party Supplies and Thee Mike B. Check out Spin’s gallery of shots by Nathaniel Turner, a bunch of Shadowscene flicks, video of Schoolboy Q coming out for “Blunt After Blunt,” as well as a megacollection of photos and videos from our homie Glenjamn! Peep more from him after the jump.
If that’s not enough, check the party on NBC tonight when Danny makes his network television debut on Last Call With Carson Daly, airing tonight (well, Thursday morning if you want to get technical) at 1:35 am after Jimmy Fallon. Set them TiVOs. Read More

Now make that muthafugga hammer time! Grab this mash from Flosstradamus’ DJ sets (featuring the Kid Sister vocal from their collab “Luuk Out Gurl” over Big Sean’s “Ass”) over on the Floss Soundcloud. And get the original version on their Jubilation EP, out now on Fool’s Gold.
Sammy keeps it in the clurb with another party bootleg, following up his Young Jeezy rework by taking the Yeezy vocoder off J Cole’s “Work Out” and adding extra Bananas (and a former American Idol judge). Get groovy on SB’s Soundcloud.
In one of the cooler marketing combinations we’ve noticed lately, the folks behind the hotly anticipated Darkness II video game enlisted none other than Kingdom to curate a mixtape of moody, genuinely experimental club music from the likes of Terror Danjah, Fatimah Al Qadri, Nguzunguzu and of course himself. Download it here, and check all Kingdom’s FG releases here.
