Fool’s Gold, along with LTD, had a holiday party this week and Quiet Lunch was in there like swimwear. Held in a secret location in Manhattan, the soiree was jam packed with party-goers swigging on holiday cheer. The debauchery was for a good cause as donation were being collection throughout the night for victims of Hurricane Sandy in Far Rockaway, Queens. Hosted by Danny Brown and Grande Marshall, other special guests made their rounds, including A-Trak, Just Blaze, Bun B, J. Cole, Chromeo, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Yams, A$AP Nasty, and the rest of the A$AP Mob. DJ Mustard and Clark Kent could do no wrong on the wheels of steel and, for a moment, everything was right with world.
