This past Friday we launched the fifth Fool’s Gold Artist Series event, featuring work from the whole IRAK crew. Tons of folks came through to celebrate and check out the new pieces – which you can still see up close and in person at the FG store on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn. We’ve got some shots after the jump.
After skipping a month to accomodate a new, earlier timeslot on SiriusXM, A-Trak is back with a brand spankin new episode of Fool’s Gold Radio for May, featuring the latest bangers from the label (and a bunch of upcoming, unreleased jams!) and much more. Grab it here or subscribe to the podcast via iTunes.
We’re excited to announce the FOOL’S GOLD CLUBHOUSE series of festival events and more, with a Clubhouse stage at HARD Summer in Los Angeles the first to be unveiled.
