We say this after every Labor Day… but this year’s Day Off was our absolute craziest yet! Thousands of party people took over 50 Kent to rock with Fool’s Gold family and friends. The day brought sets from Danny Brown, French Montana, A-Trak, Araabmuzik, The Lox, Brenmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs feat B.I.C., Shash’u, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall, Cakes Da Killa and Ruff Ryders young’n Lil Waah. And let’s not forget the surprise guests! French Montana brought out BK’s own Bobby Shmurda, while A-Trak surprised the crowd with Remy Ma, Cam’ron, A$AP Nast, iLoveMakonnen, and Travi$ Scott, and Black Dave repped for the home team with Smoke DZA. Desus & Mero held us down on the host tip with their bodega stand up (complete with assists from Rosenberg, Miss Info, Ebro and the Hot 97 crew). It was truly one for the books…

Cole (Set 1 & Set 2),FRANK151, Nicky Digital, CMJ, Driven By Boredom, Societe Perrier, and Lyynks Music (as well as some Tumblr action from Mosaic New York, LIVETODESTROY, (7)Even, New NYer, CloudXI and Ralph Lorenzo).
