We’re proud to announce that Fool’s Gold is going to release Danny Brown’s new underground opus XXX on Monday, August 15th as a free download on this very website. (Update: It’s out now, go download!)
The first full-length release from Danny since his acclaimed The Hybrid in 2010, XXX is a concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, taking listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through the uncensored mind of rap’s most electric MC. There’s no laundry list of guest appearances or producers-for-hire, keeping the focus squarely on Danny and his rhymes: a triple stack of pop culture references and did-he-really-say-that? provocations atop the heart of a poet.

Every single piece of Fool’s Gold artwork – each individual record sleeve, flyer, logo, shirt, etc – has sprung direct from the mind of our inimitable art director Dust La Rock. He’s a connoisseur! So it’s no surprise that Dust’s unique sense of taste extends beyond his own work to that of his friends and peers. Knowing that, we put together the Fool’s Gold Artist Series – a collection of limited-edition projects curated by Dust, featuring newly commissioned graphics by some of his own personal favorites.
The series launches with t-shirts and prints by Chicago’s Cody Hudson and BK’s own JK5. Come through this Thursday (8/4) as we host a special artists reception at the FG store, 536 Metropolitan, from 7-9pm. And check the guys sporting their respective tees after the jump. Read More
