Fool’s Gold BBall Wrapup

Posted on Aug 17th, 2009 by Nick Catchdubs

Last week Fool’s Gold was proud to take part in Converse’s 1st annual “Band Of Ballers” tournament. As player/GM (ha!) I put together a scrappy team including Donnis and soopamanager D Solo, Sammy Bananas, and DJ Jayceeoh. NCAA experience, mustaches, high socks – we had it all. A-Trak suited up like a French Canadian Pat Riley on the sidelines as coach, and we took on the competition with championship swag while Cipha Sounds soundtracked it Miss Info and FG fan Peter Rosenberg did play-by-play. Did I mention there were video girls? Spectacle.

Game 1 was a resounding FG victory against the Mad Decent team, followed by a Game 2 loss to Jim Jones and fam. We still made the semi-finals though, where team FG sweated out a heartbreaker of an overtime loss (the only game to hit sudden death!) to Pac Div. They in turn lost to Jimmy’s team in the finals. Ah well, there’s always the next tourney. We played hard, had fun, and came away with a year’s worth of bragging rights against Diplo. Twitter that!

Check out the recaps from Village Voice, XXL, Dime, Complex, Nah Right and Miss Info’s blog. You can also peep our intern Loren’s exclusive pix from the stands. More links as we get em, Hot 97 video and some select photos after the jump. Read More

Dust La Rock x Commonwealth Recap

Posted on Jul 17th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

This past weekend the FG fam loaded up our hovercraft and sped down to Norfolk, VA for the opening of Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth’s flagship store. Dust’s pieces looked as stunning as the tattooed mamis at the party, Nick Catchdubs provided nuff tunes (including hidden Fam-Lay gems and a gang of FG exclusives that Virginia was first to ever hear live), and we were greeted by a team of Hampton Roads’ finest, including Chad Hugo of Neptunes / N*E*R*D fame. Check out pics from the night from Commonwealth and Flash You’re Famous – we’ll be linking up more as we get them, though unfortunately no pics exist of the donk exhibition outside 7-11 later that night, or the epic Bojangles meal the following morning.

The opening also marked the debut of Commonwealth’s limited edition Best Of The Beast tee, a Hell’s Satans-worthy garment that you can purchase online while they last. More C’mon x FG collabs coming soon, as well as further graphic awesomeness from the man, the mystery, The Duster.
