Fool’s Gold Day Off (A-Trak, Araabmuzik, Juicy J, Et Al) @ City Winery, NYC 9/5/11

By Corban Goble / September 6, 2011

Though the sound system was never totally en pointe, or though the fact that many of the featured rappers didn’t do much actual rapping, yesterday’s Fool’s Gold day off was a pretty fun scene punctuated by many interesting moments, ranging from bizarre to stupendously entertaining. The day’s events featured sets from pint-sized beat banger Araabmuzik, art-rap weirdo Danny Brown, drug rap don/Three 6 Mafia overlord Juicy J as well as DJ appearances by A-Trak and Just Blaze, among many others. When local upstart ASAP Rocky came out, the show broke down pretty quickly—forming a circle pit at a free Labor Day hang typically does that. But everyone there got significantly Trippy, Mane. I took a video for Rubba Band Business 2 track “Who Da Neighbors?” that conveys the general vibe pretty well, I feel. Check that below, along with photos above by Mr. Ryan Muir.
