It’s a celebration, beeeeches. We’re four! And like we do every year around this time, we’re throwing a party to commemorate another year of label-dom. The Fool’s Gold 4 Year Anniversary party is going down Saturday, October 22nd at Tribeca Grand in NYC. It’s FREE, and will feature performances by our FG fam, friends and even Mr Thugged Out Millatainment himself, N.O.R.E. (WHAT WHAT!)
As heard on Fool’s Gold Radio (and everywhere else A-Trak has been DJing this summer), the Trizzy-enhanced version of the Rapture’s gospel stomper “How Deep Is Your Love” is out now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.

Mehdi was without a doubt like a brother to me, a friend well beyond our music ties, a kindred spirit and someone who played an irreplaceable and constant role in my life.

Last week we threw our second annual DAY OFF party in New York City, joined by a few thousand of our friends. Like the last one, only bigger and crazier, it was an amazing day and night, featuring performances from Juicy J, Danny Brown, the Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1), Just Blaze, Cubic Zirconia, Party Supplies, Nick Catchdubs and very special guests ASAP Rocky and DJ Mehdi.
A ton of y’all tweeted cameraphone pics of this to us throughout the weekend, but here’s a full size scan of Danny Brown, A-Trak and Party Supplies in the New York Times’ fall fashion mag, sporting some quilted menswear (hence the “Diamond Dogs” headline, that’s how print media works!) and looking tuff in A1 Records. Click the pic for a full-size version, and read the whole mag here.
Take it easy this Labor Day and come get live with us at the 2nd annual Fool’s Gold DAY OFF extravaganza, once again going down at the City Winery backyard. We’re rocking from 2-8pm, rain or shine, with DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1), Just Blaze and Nick Catchdubs, alongside live performances from Danny Brown, Cubic Zirconia, Party Supplies and very special guest Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia. #TRIPPYMAYNE. All ages welcome, get there early and be ready to party.
Later that night, the official afterparty NIGHT OFF will take place at The Westway, with the Macklos and Just Blaze once again on the 1s and 2s, joined by host Action Bronson. Full details after the jump. Read More
