Posted on Dec 11th, 2013

We celebrated six years of Fool’s Gold-ing with another legendary anniversary celebration last month, bringing a gang of friends and fam deep into Brooklyn to rock at SRB. The one and only Juvenile shut it down in true Nolia fashion, alongside Bodega Bamz (with Flatbush Zombies and some awesome PR / DR flags), World’s Fair, Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs, Party Supplies, GrandeMarshall, High Klassified, and surprise guests YG, Chinx Drugz and Rich Da Kid. Huge! Watch the recap video above and check out some photo galleries from Le Panda, Mel D Cole, Frank151 and Village Voice (some of our favorites after the jump). And while you’re at it, relive the night with a limited-edition 6 Year Anniversary tee, featuring Nick Gazin’s hysterical flyer art and the whole lineup on the back. Read More

World's Fair "Bastards Of The Party" Free LP Download

Posted on Sep 3rd, 2013

Queens rap collective World’s Fair kick holes in speakers worldwide with their debut album Bastards Of The Party, available now for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/worldsfair.

The album is a futuristic boom-bap collage from six truly unique crew MCs, seamlessly weaving party-crushing cuts like “B.O.T.P.” and “Get Out” alongside raw-nerve confessionals, late night rollers and straight up BARS. From the anthemic “96 Knicks” to the introspective closer “Blacklisted,” Bastards Of The Party is a self-assured, infinitely listenable mission statement heralding World’s Fair’s arrival as the new New York crew to watch.
