1. Fool’s Gold Records
Star Player: Danny Brown
Fool’s Gold Records—the brainchild of spinmasters DJ A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs—is the landing ground for pulse-pumping EDM tunes. However, Detroit’s latest hip-hop heavyweight Danny Brown is holding them down when it comes to rap. Brown first made waves with his breakthrough mixtape XXX, which garnered him a heavy underground following of hip-hop heads with an intense rave mentality. Now, with his first commercial release studio album, Old, we’ll definitely get to see his true star power. Based on current critic reviews, his future in the rap game is looking pretty bright.
