100s is taking West Coast rap back to the future. His upcoming Fool’s Gold EP, IVRY, is a glimpse into a melodic new chapter for the Berkeley MC. Daft Punk gone G-Funk? Prince’s lowrider playlist? IVRY takes classic mack vibes to chic new heights, and “Ten Freaky Hoes” (just premiered by The Fader) is a perfect teaser of what 100s’ new release has in store. Over a smoothed out track from Vaughn Oliver of FG disco duo Oliver (with talkbox assist from Numbers’ resident funkster Redinho), 100s spits X-rated bedtime stories worthy of classic Too $hort, but with an attitude, approach, and peerless sense of style all his own.
For our annual FG x LTD+ holiday bash, we skipped the North Pole and went straight to Chiraq, flying Young Chop and friends to Westway to rock a set of high-grade turn-uppables. 100s was also in the building, hosting (and performing “1999″ and “My Activator”) in a very festive head-to-toe red ensemble, and NYC’s finest Nick Catchdubs, Ni– Sky and DJ Wonder held down the 1s and 2s all night. Watch the official recap vid above and stay tuned for the next Fool’s Gold event very soon…

If you were rocking with us at the Fool’s Gold SXSW showcase, you definitely caught 100s tearing down the stage in a very icy turtleneck / corduroy suit combo. His music is as playalistic as his fashion sense, as evidenced by “1999,” which The Fader just premiered. 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!
