L.A. rapper Pigeon John makes nerdy chic look cool again

Though he's firmly in the underground for now, Pigeon John's profile is rising, thanks to the deal he recently inked with Quannum Projects — the Northern California label famously founded by DJ Shadow, Blackalicious, Lyrics Born, and Lateef the Truth- speaker — after impressing Lyrics Born night after night on tour a couple of years ago. "It's been dope," Pigeon John enthuses. "I'm like, this is freakin' fresh, and it hasn't even been a year yet! More opportunities and tours and a lot of doors opening up... it's just been faster, and more, because of Quannum."

Still, even if it's certain to become less and less of a challenge to win over crowds, he insists he'll never grow complacent, saying that he continues to approach every gig like he's got something to prove, like he's back at those open-mic nights from all those years ago.

Pigeon John says listen up.
