Fools Gold Records had came to Miami to take part in the March Madness ! A very dope event to have attended by Scion at Grand Central Miami. In order for anyone to have gotten inside they had to have wait a line that wrapped around the building into the parking lots as the bass from the sets rattled everything around. Keeping everyone anxious to see the lineup that Grand Central was hosting. The whole Fools Gold family was in the building : A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, and Sammy Bananas. An awesome night out with dope company and good music. Read more to see more pics of the event coverage.
This last Sunday I was able to participate in one of the coolest after parties to end the March madness with, The Do-Over. It was held in Miami at OHWOW’s owned Bar Black presented by Addidas Originals. With a surprise guest line up of very well-known DJ’s un told prior to the event the ones to have shown up would be : Nick Catchdubs, Gas Lamp Killer, Cosmo Baker, Rich Medina, Clasixx, and last but not least Maseo of De La Soul. A real cool crowd came out to finalize the crazy parties that’s been going around town and what a better place to do it. Be sure to see a video coming soon but here are some pictures of the nights recap. For more events thrown by the Do – Over visit their site to see them in a city near you Do- Over. Enjoy.
