Last year's Fool's Gold Day Off was lit, thanks to the 305's own Trick Daddy. A true thug's holiday.

And this year's #FGDayOff during Art Basel Miami Beach week was nothing short of spectacular, with headliners like Fool's Gold label boss A-Trak and wild Detroit rapper Danny Brown.

The DJs dropped that bass and the hip-hoppers kept it hype while the crowd did lots of ass shaking and even some moshing.

Danny Brown set it off.

Brown, who's been signed to the Fool's Gold label since 2011, kicked off the set with "Bad News," his recent single featuring Action Bronson and produced by The Alchemist. A true banger.

He also played A$AP Rocky collab "1 Train" and choice cuts off his latest album, Old.

Holding down the midshow slot, A-Trak got the mob riled for each and every track. He's got a knack for that kind of crowd control.

He'd grab the mic and rush to center stage while dancing and throwing water at the fans.

They all loved it.

A- Trak even brought out a few special guests. Like OG Maco.

The ATL viral-hit rap star stormed the stage. And instantly, he won the crowd over. The kid is all about energy.

Of course, he played the song that made him famous, "U Guessed It." But he also tore through "Love in the City" before seizing the night with "Give Em Hell."

Capping the night, Mike Will Made It delivered "I Ain't Got No Type" and "No Flex Zone," his latest, heavily trending singles, with rap duo Rae Sremmurd.

Joining him on stage were Atlanta's own Reese and Ceej of Two9. He dropped a steady selection of Mike Will Made It's greatest hits. He and the Day Off crew tossed custom "Been Trill" snapbacks and "Fools Gold" t-shirts to the fans. And the crowd got live.

From Danny Brown to A-Trak, OG Maco, and Mike Will Made It... Fool's Gold, Detroit, and Atlanta were all in the house, and they were there to let you know it.

No doubt, that bass was booming.
