It’s that time of year again… Mr Goldbar’s finna get his festival on! Check out the whole fam and some special guest friends at our label showcases in Austin and Miami this month.

You can get advance tix from mbwlife.com, but we’re also giving away a VIP package for free entry and a bottle of liquor. Simply “like” the Fool’s Gold Facebook page and we’ll select a winner at random (must be 21+).
This January the crew set sail aboard the maiden voyage of Holy Ship! and brought a dose of FG swag to the high seas rave. Check out our own recap of what went down – from the Fool’s Gold Rap Party to Danny Brown’s solo set to A-Trak’s DJ lessons and main-stage antics (including a DJ hero conga line!) – and peep the official Holy Ship! video of the whole thing after the jump.
As promised, here’s Jackie Chain’s new mixtape After Hours, put together by FG’s own Nick Catchdubs. Download now and play this at high volume, preferably in a residential area. Tracklist after the jump. 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.
Get ready to get blazed with Alabama bad boy Jackie Chain and our own Nick Catchdubs when their After Hours mixtape hits on 2/7. You may have already heard the late night bleeps of “Molly” and “Night Is Young” (featuring Freddie Gibbs and fellow FG representative Maggie Horn of Telephoned), but the final project has even more in store. To hear Catchdini tell it:
“I went into the tape thinking that we would just record a bunch of stuff like “Molly” over more electronic production, but what ended up coming together over the months ended up feeling way more like Jackie’s own signature sound: super melodic and diverse music to ride to. G shit, country shit… it left me free to just pick and chose the stuff I liked from a DJ standpoint and connect the dots.”
Check the cover art after the jump, as well as a new video for “Molly” that Jackie and Co shot during the Fool’s Gold / iheartcomix “Past Yo Bedtime” party at a mall in Austin during last SXSW. Read More
