Danny Brown’s XXX was one of the most anticipated vinyl releases in the history of the label. So it’s only right that FG continues to give Danny’s magnum rap opus the deluxe treatment with the limited-edition OD EP, collecting the album’s three bonus cuts “Baseline,” “Witit” and “Shouldn’t Of” (along with previously unavailable instrumentals) on wax for the very first time, in the form of a unique die-cut, pill-shaped clear vinyl picture disc available now on the Fool’s Gold webstore, our retail headquarters on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, and fine record stores around the globe. This collectors item will not stick around for long, get XXX-ed out while you can…
For three years running, our annual DAY OFF party has been THE most talked about free music event in New York. The Labor Day extravaganza has featured the likes of Juicy J, A$AP Rocky, Just Blaze, Araabmuzik and the late, great DJ Mehdi. This year’s party was raved about by the New York Times, Village Voice, Pitchfork and countless others. So it’s only right that we transport our hometown insanity to the West Coast for the first-ever Los Angeles DAY OFF on Sunday, October 7th!
Highlights of Cali’s inaugural DAY OFF lineup include performances from FG capo A-Trak and the label’s reigning rap hero Danny Brown, a special DJ set from world class funksters Chromeo, longtime homies and 808 kings the Cool Kids, LA favorite Casey Veggies, and many more of Fool’s Gold’s illustrious artists, including Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, and special guests.
