A-Trak Chronicles His Come-Up, Talks Fool's Gold + More On Noisey's 'In My Words'
In case you haven’t heard, A-Trak‘s a bit of a legend in the music industry. He went from being the world’s youngest champion of the DMC competition to owning the prestigious boutique label Fool’s Gold Records in what seems like mere moments and not the years it’s taken. But he’ll be the first one to tell you how equally arduous and blissful those years have been. Noisey recently followed Trak for a-day-in-the-life segment that found the prolific DJ (and at this point) music mogul taking us through the years. From the balancing act that was juggling high-school homework and gigging as a world renowned (barely) adolescent DJ to going on tour with Kanye and establishing his Fool’s Gold enterprise right here in good ole Brooklyn. You’ll learn what kind of student he was and what the first record he ever scratched on was and here him talk about the specs of his equipment like some kind of mad scientist (and even shout out former First Look Black Atlass) It’s a proper profile and deserves the eyes of a budding music mogul or even an aspiring selector. Watch as A-Trak takes you through a day in the life on Noisey’s In My Words below.
