Party people attending A-Trak and friends’ upcoming MAGIC 8-BALL TOUR (get your tickets now!) will have a chance to snag a limited-edition Scion A/V 7″ single featuring “Ray Ban Vision” backed by a brand new remix from Luckybeard, aka Phra of Crookers. It’s a jammer! Grab the mp3 now at Pitchfork.
For more Luckybeard goodness, check his great mix from last year. And be sure to pick up the new EP from Dr Gonzo, Phra and Bot’s collab with Savage Skulls (and more buddies). You’ll be hearing that one all summer…

Stunna shades: on! Trizzy revitalizes the rap remix with Fool’s Gold’s first ever posse cut, keeping the CyHi Da Prynce chorus from his OG “Ray Ban Vision” (which you can grab on Fool’s Gold Vol 1) and enlisting Donnis, Pill, and Danny Brown to kill it on brand new verses over a supercharged, scratch-enhanced beat.
Rap Radar was first to spill the beans, and you can download the mp3 starting at noon today on A-Trak’s Facebook.

Before the big FG Miami extravaganza this weekend, we figured why not warm things up with our friends?

March madness! Like we always do at this time, Team FG is going to be bumrushing a music festival near you with some unforgettable parties featuring the whole fam.

It’s an official festival showcase, which means SXSW badges / wristbands get in free all night. (There will be some limited tix for sale at the door.)
The following weekend, we head down to Miami to once again tear the roof off our downtown home Grand Central, rolling with an insane roster of superfriends including A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and…special surprise guests?

A-Trak’s adventures (as chronicled on the Fader blog) continue.
Storytime! I went to Australia for a two week tour around the New Year and it was an action-packed adventure. I was thinking of recounting it all in iambic pentameter for dramatic purposes, but I couldn’t even come up with one lousy stanza. So here is the story as I’d normally tell it.
