A-Trak and YehMe2 put ’em together for the massive “Prayer Hands,” a DJ weapon like none other. The boys’ hybrid house chant came down direct from the heavens, tore up clubs across the country on their B2B tour, and is now ready to become YOUR favorite song to play out. Get into it!
Surprise, baby! We joined with Brownies & Lemonade for a legendary secret warehouse jam on midnight, April 1st with A-Trak b2b Born Dirty, Paper Diamond, Madeaux, Andrew Luce & Gladiator on the decks. Peep the pics!
We brought the vibes to 1-800-Lucky: an antidote to the music week madness, with disco and house sets from FG friends and fam (A-Trak, MK, Mercer, Felix da Housecat, The Magician, Treasure Fingers, Horny Dave) all night long. Peep!
We celebrated “Ride For Me” and it’s bananas music video with a premier party at House Of Vans featuring DJ sets from A-Trak, Brujas and Nasty Nigel, live skating and more. (Peep the photos here!)

A-Trak’s “Ride For Me” is already one of the craziest collabs in FG history, mixing Trizzy’s skills with Falcons’ beats, Young Thug’s bars and 24Hrs’ melodies from the matrix. Throw in insane vintage ’90s skate footage from Zoo York legend Eli Morgan Gesner and “Ride For Me” goes even harder. See how it all came together from a 20+ year friendship after the jump. Read More
A-Trak and Young Thug have been recording together since 2013 and accumulating a stack of songs. Finally ready to start revealing this material, A-Trak chose “Ride For Me” for its jaw-dropping (and possibly jaw-breaking) vocal performance. You’ve never heard Young Thug like this. His voice is elastic, self-distorted, at times barely human or intelligible, and at other times familiar and bouncy. As a turntablist and sound manipulator, A-Trak was entranced by Thug’s shape-shifting. To round off the song, Trizzy brought in another close friend with an otherworldly voice, Atlanta’s own 24hrs, along with rising Fool’s Gold star Falcons on the production tip. “Ride For Me” is a speaker-busting rollercoaster ride that defies traditional song structure and will playlist your whole year. Listen here!
