Wouldn’t it be awesome if the Bruiser Brigade had their own McLaughlin Group roundtable show? News and commentary on the issues of the day… bitch. Until that glorious moment occurs, we’ll have to make do with interviews like this one, where Danny Brown’s go-to producer Skywlkr talks beatmaking, metal and more with the always on-point Passion Of The Weiss. For more Skywlkr beats, check his Bandcamp, and for more POTW Bruiser coverage, check their extremely thorough “making of XXX” piece. (And PBS get at us about the show!)
The Echoplex was the place to be last month, with the Fool’s Gold crew taking over the Check Yo Ponytail party for a night of raps, revelry and BRUISER MOTHERFUCKIN BRIGADE! Danny Brown headlined a night that also featured Kid Sister (backed by Sinden and J2K of Flosstradamus), Main Attrakionz, Party Supplies and Thee Mike B. Check out Spin’s gallery of shots by Nathaniel Turner, a bunch of Shadowscene flicks, video of Schoolboy Q coming out for “Blunt After Blunt,” as well as a megacollection of photos and videos from our homie Glenjamn! Peep more from him after the jump.
If that’s not enough, check the party on NBC tonight when Danny makes his network television debut on Last Call With Carson Daly, airing tonight (well, Thursday morning if you want to get technical) at 1:35 am after Jimmy Fallon. Set them TiVOs. Read More

The Fool’s Gold x LTD Holiday Party last month (time flies!) was another one for the books, a hyperactive affair featuring music from Texas hero OG Ron C, Just Blaze, The Brothers Macklovitch and Nick Catchdubs, Danny Brown in formalwear and moshing A$APs galore.
