Even if you don't stay up to date on Top 40 hip-hop and R&B, there's a good chance that you've heard a Ty Dolla $ign song without realizing it. For the past few years, he's been a constant presence on the radio, whether it is via his solo material ("Drop That Kitty," "Or Nah," "Paranoid") or as a featured artist on other people's songs or remixes (Jeremih's "Don't Tell 'Em,"  YG's "Toot It And Boot It").
 
Dressed in black with a red trench coat that he later draped on his mic stand, what he lacked in rapping ability (he's a far better singer) he made up for with charisma. His Sunday (June 21) set was a greatest hits showcase, and despite some questionable, explicit stage banter (especially in light of Action Bronson's cancelled performance), he had the audience hanging on his every word (tossing out a few joints didn't hurt either).
