Clap Clap

Follow: @FYIpsalms

It makes perfect sense that F.Y.I.'s latest video puts the viewer right into the heart of Los Angeles' afterhours scene where hoodsters, hipsters, and everything in between can become somebody else even if it is for a moment. Which leaves folks to ask the question, "What does it profit the party goer to become totally turned up but lose control?"
