A-Trak (DJ, producer, and co-founder of Fool’s Gold) teams with Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J and Detroit rapper Danny Brown on “Piss Test.” This track is the first record off of Fool’s Gold Records’ upcoming compilation, Loosies. Though Juicy J and Danny Brown have very different styles they both fit well on A-Trak’s production.
