Ain’t no party like a Fool’s Gold party… we celebrated five years of label-dom in style during CMJ weekend, taking over one of the Converse Rubber Tracks Live nights at Music Hall Of Williamsburg and bringing a bunch of our friends along. The legendary Ghostface Killah headlined alongside A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis (who brought out Trinidad Jame$ and what felt like half of Atlanta onstage), World’s Fair (who did the same for NY with Flatbush Zombies and Tanboys), Nick Catchdubs, Troy Ave, Chase N Cashe, Ryan Hemsworth, the latest member of the FG fam GrandeMarshall and more.
Fool’s Gold is gettin’ grown! Our annual anniversary bashes are the stuff of legend, and the fifth one takes place on Saturday, October 20th as part of the ongoing Converse Rubber Tracks Live series of free concerts at Music Hall Of Williamsburg.
The showcase will feature performances from A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Nick Catchdubs, Donnis, World’s Fair, and Troy Ave (all of whom have recorded at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio, and have music featured on our upcoming hip-hop compilation, Loosies). And in true Fool’s Gold fashion, the night will be headlined by rap iconoclast Ghostface Killah. WHAT?!?!? It’s another can’t-miss night out with music’s golden boys…. we’ll see you there! Read More
