The annual Fool’s Gold Austin extravaganza keeps getting bigger and better! Check out what went down at our official SXSW showcase, our after-hours bash with A$AP Yams at the Illmore, the mega-label Super Party team-up with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail, and more (including Danny Brown proudly accepting an mtvU Video Of The Year Woodie!) in this official recap video.
Today 19 year old rap phenom GrandeMarshall releases his sophomore mixtape Mugga Man for free download on Fool’s Gold. Get it here and watch the video for the title track above, directed by Josh Wehle.
The anticipated follow up to Grande’s acclaimed debut 800 features 21 tracks of THC-powered beats and supremely confident rhymes from the young MC, an evocative and hypnotic chronicle of late nights and slow rolling Crown Vics penned in Philly slang hieroglyphics. Get familiar with one of the most remarkable new talents in rap, and a proud new addition to the label that’s brought you Danny Brown, Duck Sauce, Kid Cudi and many more. Read More

GrandeMarshall is heading down to Austin with us to rock at the Fool’s Gold showcase next Saturday (3/16), and to get you in the zone he’s dropped another cut off his upcoming Muggaman mixtape, “Dedicated” featuring fellow Philly MC Saudi Money (aka Assad). As the man himself says, “you don’t ride to this, you get driven to it… if you ain’t high for this than don’t listen to it.” For more Muggaman teases, snag “Boathouse Row” and “Tastykake (Still Popping),” and stay tuned for the full tape real soon…
Fool’s Gold’s Philly champ GrandeMarshall continues to tease tracks from his upcoming Mugga Man mixtape. First came the Assad collab “Boathouse Row” and now he closes the week with the awesomely wavy 808 vibes of “Tastykake (Still Poppin).” Check out both on Grande’s SoundCloud, grab his full-length 800 mixtape for even more, and stay tuned…
Asaad and our own GrandeMarshall have teamed up for several Philly rap collabs thru the years, and the Complex-premiered “AK47″ is the latest from the dynamic duo (with verses from their dude Wyo as well). Check it out…
On December 19th, we celebrated the holiday season once again with our friends at LTD+ and a gang of New York City’s finest party people.
