Alvin Risk takes another leap into the unexpected with his new release “Beastmode” on Fool’s Gold. The title track is a moody, hybrid jam built around insane vocals from Odd Future’s Hodgy Beats, constantly morphing breakbeats, and what might just be a late contender for the year’s craziest bassline. Premiered on Complex, listen to Beastmode now!
Meyhem Lauren is a true school Queens, New York original. After dropping outerboro knowledge jewels around the globe on tour with Action Bronson, he’s back home and repping harder than ever with the upcoming free album Piatto D’Oro on Fool’s Gold.
Premiered by Stereogum, “Bonus Round” is a taste of what’s in store: smoothed out samples and knucklehead raps (“whole squad tatted up like Yakuza / we ain’t worried ‘bout getting jobs, you fuckin’ loser”) from a Who’s Who of NY rap royalty: Mey, Action, Long Island legend Roc Marciano and king of outros Big Body Bes. Stay tuned for more gems off Piatto D’Oro in the coming weeks!

LNDN DRGS is the Cali rap you need RIGHT NOW. The slowed samples and house party vibes of Bompton rapper Jay Worthy and Vancouver producer Sean House might conjure G-Funk classics of old, but this ain’t a DeLorean on Daytons. Mentored by the late A$AP Yams, LNDN DRGS have pulled from generations of game to make modern day slaps all their own. After burning down the stage at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF LA (leaving a trail of curl activator in their wake), LNDN DRGS and FG have combined forces for the free album Aktive, featuring some of the funnest, filthiest West Coast jams we’ve heard in our lives (and cover art by OG Doggystyle illustrator Joe Cool). Roller rink basslines, low riding flows, crucial, um, “dating advice”… this is LNDN DRGS raw and uncut, welcoming everyone to the function. Premiered by The FADER, download Aktive now and play it everywhere!

Listen to “Dance” now!

GrandeMarshall’s long-awaited new studio album, My Brother’s Keeper, is out now. In a sea of trend-hopping MCs, this Philly artist has confidently sailed his own wave since 2012, when Fool’s Gold founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs signed Grande on the strength of the self-released debut, 800. The following year’s free FG album Mugga Man pushed the envelope even further, and propelled GrandeMarshall into conversation amongst some of hip-hop’s biggest up and coming names. Working with the likes of Flume and Nadus while consistently putting out impressive solo tracks has earned this North Philadelphia rapper nods from the press and original heads alike. Yet My Brother’s Keeper is a new milestone for Grande – unhurried, self-assured, and deeply personal. Play My Brother’s Keeper loud!
There’s no one quite like Tommy Trash. With his signature locks and manic stage presence, he’s firmly established himself as one of the most iconic characters in dance music. We’re excited to welcome Tommy back to FG with the new Luv U Giv EP, a three song showcase for his ecstatic, 80s-inspired take on the Trashed groove that fans know and love. The release is accompanied by a very special music video trilogy featuring the island misadventures of a 12” tall Tommy toy and a horde of ravaging cannibal dolls; watch them all now (peep the making of later!) and play Luv U Giv as loud as possible!
