We brought DAY OFF to Los Angeles last month, throwing our long running NYC bash in Cali for the first time ever. Suffice it to say… it was crazy! The whole fam was in effect, with A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo, Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and more performing in front of a few thousand of LA’s finest party people. And when it was all said and done, we threw an afterparty with the likes of Dave1, RL Grime, Carnage, Franki Chan… Good times!
Want a guest verse from Danny Brown in total fucking beast mode? Of course you do. Peep DB on the already-grimey “Mini Van Dan” remix from A$ton Matthews, also featuring A$AP Nast and Flatbush Zombies. And for more from A$ton, peep his Versace Ragz mixtape.
Director Bijoux Altamirano provides the perfect visual counterpart to Danny Brown’s raucous “Witit” in the form of a mind-bending night out at the strip joint with Danny and friends. Club scenes melt into animated GIF psychedelia, while Danny’s unhinged performance and peerless fashion sense once again showcase one of the most unique artists in rap today. Get the track on the deluxe edition of XXX on iTunes, as well as the limited, pill-shaped picture disc OD EP vinyl from the FG webstore. Read More
The soundtrack for RZA’s directorial debut The Man With The Iron Fists is an appropriately star-studded affair, featuring a gang of rap icons including our own Danny Brown, who closes out the epic “Tick, Tock” as only he can. Check it out and get the soundtrack (in various deluxe digital and physical formats) right here.
Canadian purveyors of trapped out trip hop, Purity Ring, have enlisted Danny Brown to add his distinctive Bruiser style to a remix of their track “Belispeak”. Download the mp3 from Purity Ring’s YouTube and stay tuned for more from PR’s forthcoming remix album.
This Sunday (10/7) the crew hits Los Angeles for our first ever West Coast edition of DAY OFF, featuring A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo (DJ Set), Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and special guests.
The response to our initial Day Off LA announcement was so crazy that we hit capacity on RSVPs only a few hours later! We held some space though, and will be releasing 500 additional RSVPs on the website today at noon PST. (If you’ve already RSVPed, hold tight – venue info will be emailed to you before the event).
Bruiser Brigade get live in a boxing gym, talking about how they came together in Detroit before Danny Brown and company dismantle a Mike Will beat in the ring. Check it out now (plus a bonus beat after the jump!), and check the Bruiser’s debut “Errthang / Jooky,” out now for free download on Fool’s Gold / Scion A/V. Read More
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…
