The latest FOOLCAST mix comes from scratch wizard Shiftee and his beat pharmacist bud Rx, who have combined forces for a variety of projects through the years for their Hot Mom crew and beyond. “Fire Hydrant Pool Party” is a hyper-caffeinated mission statement from the duo, featuring kitchen sink party cuts from grime to Mary J Blige, juke to Run The Jewels. Cannonball!

It’s the latest cut from his Ice Cold Perm to get a visual, and a great teaser to announce 100s’ upcoming Fool’s Gold EP. Get wavy!
