The Fader just premiered World’s Fair’s first official video, “96 Knicks,” an off-season anthem for trash talkers, elbow throwers, and piss test failures worldwide. The Shomi Patwary-directed clip formally announces WF’s signing to Fool’s Gold as well as the Queens supergroup’s debut Bastards Of The Party, out September 3rd.
Following releases from the group’s individual members (including last year’s lauded mixtape Queens…Revisited from WF sub-group Children of the Night), Bastards Of The Party is the sound of New York’s best kept secret transforming into THE rap crew to watch, stealing your girl, smoking your weed, and stepping on your sneakers in the process. The world is theirs…
This past Friday night, Just Blaze was getting records together for his DJ sets at HARD Summer and Center Of Gravity and decided to record this “Wig Splitters” mix for all you party people out there. And if that weren’t enough, today he decided to announce the official release of his “Higher” single with Baauer with a video teaser and stream of the final version (check em after the jump). Does this mean that JB’s long-awaited FG release is next in line? Stay tuned yung jedis…
FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs busts out with “Bizness,” featuring trailblazing Bay Area MCs IAMSU! and Jay Ant, and ravey remixes from Astronomar and ETC!ETC! Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold, and stay tuned for more on Nick’s upcoming Smoke Machine LP.
Nick partnered with alt comedy network JASH for the “Business” music video.

Your PowerPoint presentation will never be the same…
MySpace sat with El-P, Killer Mike and director Tim Saccenti to get the lowdown on how the gleefully violent music video for Run The Jewels’ “36” Chain” came together. Check it out and get the RTJ album (and more!) at foolsgoldrecs.com/runthejewels.
The Fool’s Gold Festival Stage kicked off a new year of all-singing, all-dancing partytimes deep in the woods of Michigan. FG’s contribution to the Electric Forest featured A-Trak, Danny Brown, Flosstradamus, Oliver, Just Blaze, Craze, Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers and Party Supplies on the same stage, an all-day display of awesomeness captured in the video above.
The new Run The Jewels video for “36” Chain” is equal parts Charles Bronson in Death Wish and LL Cool J circa “I’m Bad” as El and Mike brutally (and questionably) fight to rescue their furry, demented companion, Mr Killums. Andrew WK, Amber Tamblyn and more partake in this heartwarming tale of friendship, family values and redemption.
