It’s that time of year again… the mtvU Woodie Awards are back, and Fool’s Gold is representing with Danny Brown up for Best Video (“Grown Up”) and A-Trak nominated for TWO “Tag Team” Woodies, for his Dillon Francis collab “Money Makin” as well as “Warrior” with Mark Foster and Kimbra (no stranger to awards herself, we see those Grammys…) GET TO VOTING!
Noisey hit up Roseland for the kickoff of the Long Live A$AP Tour a few months back with Danny Brown, Schoolboy Q, A$AP Rocky and the entire A$AP Mob. Check out their footage of the live show and the backstage antics, complete with cameos from A-Trak, Action Bronson and more.
Our recent remix contest for A-Trak & Zinc’s Natalie Storm-featuring “Like The Dancefloor” brought in a slew of great entries, with Bad Mr Kitty’s laser-laced contribution named the victor. You can get it now on Beatport!

Few things make for more enjoyable reads than Danny Brown interviews. Pitchfork catches up with DB and talks Old, Chief Keef and lean; Complex gets his hysterically insightful take on fashion week looks from Rick Owens, Balmain and more. #STYLE.
The hotly-anticipated Coachella 2013 lineup dropped last night, with Danny Brown, Tommy Trash and Dillon Francis in the mix of performers, not to mention Baauer, Action Bronson, El-P and a gang of other folks who have never had music released on our record label (though Stone Roses do have a song called “Fool’s Gold” you might have heard of.) See you in the desert.
The #HOODIEBOYZ return with the hotly-anticipated sequel to their Banned mix, featuring new originals, collabs, and blends (Danny Brown “Witit” vs Flosstradamus “Twark”?!?!?!) alongside other fine trappables from Carnage, Baauer and more. Torrent it now. Hack the planet.
On December 19th, we celebrated the holiday season once again with our friends at LTD+ and a gang of New York City’s finest party people. Danny Brown and GrandeMarshall brought the raps, DJ Mustard (on the beat hoe!), Just Blaze and Nick Catchdubs held it down on the 1s and 2s, the whole A$AP Mob was in effect, and it was another festive notch in the FG events belt. Watch the recap vid above and check out some flicks from Brook Bobbins after the jump (full gallery here). Read More
