Check out this great feature on the unlikely backstory of Jay Worthy, the MC of LNDN DRGS and (alongside G Perico and Cardo) one third of G-Worthy, the trio behind what LA Weekly calls “one of the year’s best gangsta rap records.” Listen to G-Worthy’s self titled debut and check them live at the Fool’s Gold DAY OFF ComplexCon takeover 11/4.
The westside’s newest wrecking crew, G-Worthy (comprised of LA rappers G Perico, Jay Worthy of LNDN DRGS, and super producer Cardo) release their self-titled debut project today. Recorded in 2 days in LA, the project itself is authentic gangster rap from the City of Angels; G Perico from South Central and the Bompton-based Jay Worthy, mixed together with Cardo’s distinct, smoothed-out melodic production, makes for one of the best west coast connections in years. Play loud in a residential neighborhood near you!
South Central LA rapper G Perico, Compton based Jay Worthy and acclaimed Texas-via-Minnesota producer Cardo have joined forces for the most exciting west-side connection this year, G-Worthy. The project is best described by Cardo as “late night mobbin”: music to be played while cruising the city to authentic loc’d-out vibes. Listen to the Never Miss title track now, and stay tuned for more.
Spend a day in the life of LNDN DRGS with their new visual for “2 Brand New Phones” and “Hurt My Hand.” Jay Worthy and friends (Aston Matthews, Earl Swavey & the BornxRaised crew) bop through house parties and hit the telly with baddies while street-level funk from Burnout 2 blasts from the speakers. This is party music for the people… play loud and ride out. Download the Burnout series for free at smarturl.it/burnoutbundle.
Summer isn’t over yet! LNDN DRGS hoo ride into the dog days with Burnout 2, a seamless mix of the ice-cold, modern day funk they’re known for. Compton rapper Jay Worthy and Vancouver producer Sean House continue to pour up in the spirit of their debut Fool’s Gold LP Aktive, with a welcome guestlist (from Lench Mob OG Dazzie Dee to Queens’ Meyhem Lauren) and five new tracks of warped cassette-worthy loops and trunk rattling low end. Download it for free (along with Burnout 1!) here. Check the tracklist after the jump.
Fool’s Gold teamed up with Seattle’s Alive & Well for a limited edition capsule celebrating the brand’s four-year anniversary. With shared roots in music and street culture (longtime FG fam Four Color Zack is one of A&W’s founders) and a mutually irreverent take on style, this team-up channels inspiration from Seatown weather, Sir Mix A Lot’s limo, and more into must-have pieces for Spring. Get the tees, hoodies, rain jacket, skate deck and more starting this Saturday (3/5) at store.foolsgoldrecs.com and aliveandwellsea.com, and celebrate with a FG takeover that night at 95 Slide (722 E. Pike Street) featuring music from LNDN DRGS, Nick Catchdubs, Four Color Zack and Sean Cee.
LNDN DRGS is the Cali rap you need RIGHT NOW. The slowed samples and house party vibes of Bompton rapper Jay Worthy and Vancouver producer Sean House might conjure G-Funk classics of old, but this ain’t a DeLorean on Daytons. Mentored by the late A$AP Yams, LNDN DRGS have pulled from generations of game to make modern day slaps all their own. After burning down the stage at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF LA (leaving a trail of curl activator in their wake), LNDN DRGS and FG have combined forces for the free album Aktive, featuring some of the funnest, filthiest West Coast jams we’ve heard in our lives (and cover art by OG Doggystyle illustrator Joe Cool). Roller rink basslines, low riding flows, crucial, um, “dating advice”… this is LNDN DRGS raw and uncut, welcoming everyone to the function. Premiered by The FADER, download Aktive now and play it everywhere!
LNDN DRGS drop another smooth cut off their upcoming free album Aktive. This one is called “Hop Out”, premiered earlier on Complex. Listen to it below and watch the video for “Susan” for some more of that fonk after the jump. Get ready to get Aktive Monday, November 23rd!
