Tis the season, boys and girls… ourannualholidaytradition is back! We’re teaming up with our buds at LTD+ for another year ending bash next Wednesday (12/19) in NYC. Who’ll be there you ask? Danny Brown! GrandeMarshall! DJ Mustard! Clark Kent! And more, all celebrating another year of good music and good vibes with the FG fam. We’re also collecting donations at the door for the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of #RebuildOneBlock. RSVP at foolsgoldrecs.com/holiday for more info and we’ll see you there.
The wait is over! Fool’s Gold’s inaugural rap compilation Loosies drops December 18th, featuring 22 new tracks curated by label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. The new music from FG family and friends around the country includes an insane “Piss Test” remix with Jim Jones, Flatbush Zombies, El-P and Flosstradamus, a new Casey Veggies / Chuck Inglish collab (watch the video above), tracks from our own Danny Brown, GrandeMarshall, Donnis, Party Supplies and much, much more – peep the entire tracklist after the jump!
Loosies will be available digitally from all retailers on 12/18, as well as on a limited edition cigarette-shaped USB drive direct from store.foolsgoldrecs.com and select stores. The package will also include a continuous DJ mix of all 22 songs from A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Read More
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.
