A few weeks ago we ran through Austin for two mega parties during SXSW: a label showcase at the brand new Beauty Ballroom, and a team-up Super Party with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail that took over BB as well as the giant Emo’s East down the street. Suffice it to say… shit got live!
From A$AP (and Sammy Bananas!) stagedives to A-Trak’s big-room scratchery, these were parties none of us will forget. Check out our recap video of both nights above, along with photos from our in-house shutterbug Josh Wehle (as well as a CYP’s full cinema-style featurette on Super Party) after the jump. Read More
When he’s not designing camo bucks for Bathing Ape or, y’know, being named GQ’s Best New Menswear Designer, Marc McNairy is listening to a whooooole lot of Danny Brown. He’s a superfan, as this new shirt (entitled, naturally, the Cool Ranch Doritos T) from his New Amsterdam collection will attest. Pick one up while they last.
During his main stage Coachella performance this weekend, Childish Gambino brought out tourmate Danny Brown and fellow festival performer Kendrick Lamar to do their remix of his track “You Don’t Know Me,” check it out. Hit the events page for more Danny / Gambino dates near you.
It’s that time of year again… we’re throwing a daytime bash for all the party people headed to Palm Springs this weekend for Coachella. It’s going down this Sunday, April 15th as part of the Hard Rock Hotel’s Music Mansion. Update: added some big gunz to the lineup in the form of Flying Lotus and Oliver, who’ll be joining Daniel LeDisko, Nick Hook of Cubic Zirconia, (Thee) Mike B and a special tag team DJ set from label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Woah!
Now here’s some rappin ass raps! Danny Brown joins his Black Hippy bro Ab-Soul on this moody new joint, with the lovely Jhne Aiko on the intro to boot! This one is a must listen, download it here and check Danny tonight in NYC for the XXL Freshman Concert at Best Buy Theatre. Read More
“Shout out to Walgreens, CVS and thank you to my plugs…”
A-Trak teams up with Juicy J and Danny brown for the new single “Piss Test,” out today on iTunes. Download now – don’t worry, we won’t tell any potential employers. More from the FG rap compilation Loosies coming soon…
This Tuesday hit iTunes and grab “Piss Test,” a speaker-detonating slice of gleefully antisocial Parental Advisory rap from A-Trak, Juicy J and Danny Brown. It’s the first teaser off Loosies, the upcoming Fool’s Gold hip hop compilation. Play this at high volume, preferably in a residential neighborhood.
The Fader just premiered the new Danny Brown track “Grown Up,” a free download courtesy of Scion A/V (who also pressed it on a limited vinyl 7″ you can find at select Danny tour dates). This Party Supplies-produced headnodder is the autobiographical origin story of a daredevil MC, chronicling Danny’s rise from misfit lunchroom battler to the radioactive rap hero he is today. (Special shout out to DJ Shiftee on the scratch chorus, and Dust La Rock on the sleeve as always.) Grab it here, and for more from Danny’s childhood, check him talking Spice1 and more with the inimitable Narduar in a video interview from SXSW after the jump.
