Now on our fourth consecutive Labor Day, Fool’s Gold’s annual Day Off extravaganza is going to make history with our biggest lineup to date. Day Off unites the upper echelons of hip hop and electronic music in true New York style, including a rare appearance by hit makers Duck Sauce, FG’s own rap superstar Danny Brown, cult heroes A$AP Ferg and Migos and the critically acclaimed Run The Jewels (El-P and Killer Mike), alongside mysterious electro supergroup Unibros, label mainstays World’s Fair, GrandeMarshall, Party Supplies and Nick Catchdubs, streetwear dons #BEEN #TRILL, and more.
Having outgrown its previous Soho venue, the FREE bona fide festival is now planting its flag in the label’s own backyard at Williamsburg Park. If you’ve attended DAY OFF in previous years and turned up with the likes of Juicy J, French Montana, DJ Mehdi, Flatbush Zombies, Yelawolf and Chromeo, you’ll know this is the best way to end your summer (and the only way to enjoy a Monday).
The party doesn’t end there: the official NIGHT OFF afterparty will be just down the street at Brooklyn Bowl, starting at 11pm. Stay tuned for more announcements as Fool’s Gold expands the DAY OFF franchise to 3 more cities this fall!
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 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.
