Since their establishment in 2007, Brooklyn-based label Fool’s Gold has pumped out a pretty continuous stream of dance floor burners, excitingly experimental rap records, and seemingly endless intersections of the two. A statement from the label’s website perfectly encapsulates the vibe of a given Fool’s Gold record:
“For those in the know, a Fool’s Gold party is THE place to be – the kind of night where DJ Premier spins disco records, Kanye shows up unannounced to try out new music, and Drake gets on the mic to wish everyone a happy Chanukah.”
Translation? Expect the unexpected and expect to have a damn good time. For nearly five years, label cofounders (and decorated DJs) A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs have done their best to make sure expectant fans do both in equal measure. Check out 10 of the best records Fool’s Gold has put out since they first stepped foot on the scene.
