“People often ask me about my musical influences,” says Shash’U. “Here is a playlist for an answer. Vibe to this!” Check out his “These Made Me” Playlist on Spotify and to see those influences in action, pick up Shash’U’s PWRFNK and Thru Da Night EPs on double vinyl (with poster!) from the FG store.
There’s nowhere in the world quite like Oakland, and there’s no one making music quite like L-Deez. Lamborghini Ferarri is his debut EP, featuring three wildly catchy tracks laced with curbside color commentary and a classic ‘80s rap vibe we haven’t felt in years. But don’t get it twisted, Lamborghini Ferrari is no time machine. With longtime FG fam Trackademicks providing the soundtrack, this EP hits a new sweet spot somewhere between Too $hort’s trunk tales, hyphy’s wild style, and the futuristic club sounds of today. Welcome to The Town, like you’ve never heard it before! Get it now on iTunes or stream on Spotify.
The turn up returns! Fool’s Gold’s DAY OFF festival is back for their biggest and craziest year of parties yet. Before we announce lineups and put tickets on sale, we’re teasing cities for ’15 (including their annual hometown Labor Day throwdown) at fgdayoff.com with a recap of all last year’s action, including sets from Big Sean, Travi$ Scott, Danny Brown, French Montana and more.
Says A-Trak: “Day Off started as a party in a Soho parking lot 5 years ago and is now an actual festival in multiple cities. It’s where we bring together all the music we listen to, from FG extended family to artists we’re fans of. We’ve met people hanging out at Day Off that we ended up signing to the label — it’s really where the whole vision of Fool’s Gold comes together. And this year’s events are going to be bigger than ever. Your favorite festival is back!” Read More
