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.
Summer time is well upon us and we are hyped for all the good new dancehall music that has graced the airwaves thus far. Some of our favorite artists are keeping us entertained with new music from Mavado, "No Freak," and Alkaline with the fire track, "Golden Hold," both produced by Lee Milla Productions.
Another summer week down, a weekend coming up. Check out what we are into. The Listen Down has landed.
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.
If there's one thing you can always count on it's your team. A team is a cohesive partnership where each person plays a specific role in the pursuit and for the purpose of one common goal.
