Editors’ Notes

While rap music's detractors grumble about the genre's tendency to glorify violence, loose morals, and rampant consumerism, they tend to overlook artists like Pigeon John, a Los Angeles rhyme veteran who has been releasing decidedly non-threatening, lighthearted jams for the better part of two decades. After honing his skills at the storied Good Life Cafe (alongside acts like Jurassic 5, Pharcyde, and Freestyle Fellowship), he released half a dozen solo albums and has countless indie-rap features to his credit. Dragon Slayer is his most blatant pop material to date, full of relentlessly catchy hooks, lots of singing, and the usual overtly zany wordplay mixed with an ample amount of self-deprecating humor. “The Bomb" is slightly reminiscent of OutKast's crossover anthem "Hey Ya!," while several tracks, especially "Rock Bottom Again" and "Davey Rockit" aren't even really hip-hop at all. At its best, his blend of styles and instrumentation is original, funny, and thoroughly entertaining.

Customer Reviews

not quite what he used to be

after being a pigeon john fan for years now, it seems as if he has fallen off the path of faith. frankly, i dont know why this album is in the hip hop/rap genre though im not quite sure how to categorize this album. he doesnt really rap anymore, nor does he hit on any real christian topics. many have come to know him as a christian artist, nowadays he is falling prey to the secular norm that society has pressured many to do.

Good Music

What else can i say, it's good music. Pigeon John is so diverse he can rap about about growing with bloods in his hood to singing about losing his job. This man never disappoints. To the the person that is talking about "Not quite what he used to be" PJ has always been like this, he can speak on so many topics and pull it off. Quit trying to categorize him, and just enjoy the music.

👍

I heard this song on the new "Dead Island 2" trailer it's amazing!

Biography

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Born to mixed-race parents in Omaha, NE, John Dust felt out of place due to the color of his skin, a feeling that also continued after he moved to Inglewood, CA.

Dust, who was now going by Pigeon John (a name the mother of a friend had given him), soon joined hip-hop collectives L.A. Symphony...
