World’s Fair are New York. Not just the location, though no one is better equipped to rep their hometown than this collective from Queens. They are the dirt, dreams and neon, the sound of hard days and endless nights… but New York has never sounded quite like this. Since their debut tape Bastards Of The Party, WF have taken their time crafting an ambitious, future-minded album worthy of the unique personalities of Remy Banks, Nasty Nigel, Cody B Ware, Prince SAMO, Jeff Donna and Lansky Jones. “Elvis’ Flowers (on my grave)” is the warning siren: chopped up vocals and frantic breakbeats from Black Noi$e and NoLife meet adrenaline-laced bars, all building to an ecstatic, break-of-dawn bass release. Play it loud, get into some trouble, and get ready for more.
Lansky Jones of World’s Fair reps for the city as only he can in the new video for “Eleven Madison Park,” a family affair (directed by Remy Banks, narrated by Michael Rappaport, cuts by Statik Selektah) to keep you vibing. Stay tuned for more from World’s Fair very soon…
We say this after every Labor Day… but this year’s Day Off was our absolute craziest yet! Thousands of party people took over 50 Kent to rock with Fool’s Gold family and friends. The day brought sets from Danny Brown, French Montana, A-Trak, Araabmuzik, The Lox, Brenmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs feat B.I.C., Shash’u, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall, Cakes Da Killa and Ruff Ryders young’n Lil Waah. And let’s not forget the surprise guests! French Montana brought out BK’s own Bobby Shmurda, while A-Trak surprised the crowd with Remy Ma, Cam’ron, A$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…
