Fools Gold is now my favourite record label. A label where they can release GLC and Kid Sister side-to-side without it being a stretch
Founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, the two have spent months sharing music and creative projects including Bag Raiders, Chromeo, Jokers Of The Scene, Kavinsky and XXXChange to name a few

Well boys and girls, from Fools Gold I introduce Kid Cudi. Born and raised in Cleveland, currently residing in BK. At the age of 15, Kid Cudi recorded his first song on a karaoke machine in his friend’s basement. It was a freestyle over the beat to Wu-Tang Clan’s “It's Yourz,” an undeniable hip-hop classic. From recording on a karaoke machine in his friend’s basement, he’s now packing out venues all over the US with some of his Fools Gold friends, Kid Sister, A-Trak, and the Cool Kids
His debut single "Day 'N' Nite" is one of the most hypnotic and original tracks to come out of the scene in some time. a spaced out, R&B influenced tale of loneliness and isolation, something not often heard in the world of hip-hop anymore
And tbh the remix done by Italian deejay superstars Crookers is ABSOLUTELY UNFUCKWITHABLE
