We say this after every Labor Day… but this year’s Day Off was our absolute craziest yet! Thousands of party people took over 50 Kent to rock with Fool’s Gold family and friends. The day brought sets from Danny Brown, French Montana, A-Trak, Araabmuzik, The Lox, Brenmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs feat B.I.C., Shash’u, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall, Cakes Da Killa and Ruff Ryders young’n Lil Waah. And let’s not forget the surprise guests! French Montana brought out BK’s own Bobby Shmurda, while A-Trak surprised the crowd with Remy Ma, Cam’ron, A$AP Nast, iLoveMakonnen, and Travi$ Scott, and Black Dave repped for the home team with Smoke DZA. Desus & Mero held us down on the host tip with their bodega stand up (complete with assists from Rosenberg, Miss Info, Ebro and the Hot 97 crew). It was truly one for the books…
Your Labor Day plans are locked in! DAY OFF is going down this Monday, 9/1 at 50 Kent in Williamsburg. You still have a couple hours to pick up advance $20 tickets at fgdayoff.com (they’ll be $30 at the door) to come enjoy the show. And what a show it is!!! A-Trak officially announced his set alongside headliners Danny Brown and French Montana, three very big dogs doing their thing alongside Araabmuzik, The Lox, Brenmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs feat B.I.C., Shash’u, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall, Cakes Da Killa and some VERY special guests! It’s an all-ages extravaganza you absolutely cannot miss.

One of the highlights of our Day Off party this past monday was the unveiling of a new Fool’s Gold x Coke Boys collab tee. If you didn’t snag one at the show, you’re in luck – we’ve got a handful left to slang on the webstore (and, as always, our retail spot on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn). FG and CB logos on the front, “FANUTE” done up jersey style on the back. Snag this and match it with your Versace scarf and/or A-Trak hat.
