WE ARE INTO: THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF FYF FEST 2017

Los Angeles' annual music fest FYF may have been its best yet. It certainly had the lineup to go toe to toe with any of this year's big festivals. There were so many standouts, it was hard to pick our favorites. ATCQ brought the house down with their classic hip hop jams and their dedications to Phife Dawg. Iggy Pop is 70 and looked a spry 20 out on the Lawn stage. Run the Jewels tore the roof off, Majid Jordan was a surprise and Anderson. Paak cooked, NIN rocked, but we wanted to crown a prince and princess of the festival.

ARTIST TO WATCH: DEJAY & HIS MESSAGE

A mask is a powerful symbol. The righteous artist is said to wear masks for us. So that we see ourselves in them; so that we see them as a canvas, a reflection. UK artist DeJay embodies these reflections through his use of his mask. A canvas of conviction and righteousness that is as powerful as it is real.
