Danny Brown, Detroit’s son, is a product of his hometown, just as Big forever wore Brooklyn like a badge…

So says The Fader in their current issue, an all-Notorious BIG tribute that manages to cover all aspects of Christopher Wallace’s icon-dom, from his Bad Boy history to the indelible specter he still casts over modern day rap. You can now read the full Danny Brown profile on the Fader blog – but if you get the chance, be sure to pick up the physical issue on a newsstand near you. It looks damn sharp!

FADER TV Music Video Contest #1: Jokers Of The Scene "Revolting Joks"

Posted on Jul 20th, 2010

As seen on TheFADER.com:

“Resident Fool’s Gold dance maniacs Jokers Of The Scene know what a good music video looks like. And, ahem, so do we! Now that the Jokers have a new record in need of a video, we reach out to you, the upstart, unsung directors and visual artists of bloglandia, and throw down the gauntlet. SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT!

New JOTS single ‘Revolting Joks’ is a twisty piano clubber that’s just begging for a visual to compliment its jacked-up moodiness. To that end, we’re launching a contest to see who can come up with the most imaginative music video for the tune. Download the video edit here, make some magic happen, and send us the results by August 16th. The videos will be reviewed by the collective FADER and Fool’s Gold braintrusts, and the best ones will be re-posted for the world to see, earning its creators internet immortality (and some fine, fine prize packs from the label and the magazine). It’s time to revolt…”

Track Radio

Posted on Mar 9th, 2009

This Friday on The FADER’s “The Let Out” on East Village Radio, they had ATLien and Killer Mike associate Pill by to kick some rhymes, and whaddayaknow, one of the tracks he goes over just happens to be Trackademicks’ “Topsidin” instrumental from the “Enjoy What You Do / Topsidin” single (available here and everywhere else digital music is sold, vinyl on its way!) Sure, it’s a “freestyle” in the most literal sense, but as always it’s cool to hear other rappers on our stuff.

Elsewhere on the internet airwaves, you can listen to this extensive Trackademicks interview with Streets Is Talking Radio right here. “In the words of Mac Mall, this interview is full of ‘Nathan But Game,’” says Track. Grab it!
