Film At 11: Pigeon John

L.A.-based underground hip-hop artist Pigeon John has been kickin’ it since the days of Grandmaster Flash and graffiti-inspired clothing, but he’s remained a force on the scene with various collaborations and individual efforts. His new album, Dragon Slayer (Quannum Projects), dropped a single right into a Volkswagon commercial. “The Bomb” is an airwalk, with raucous clapping and jubilant Outkast beats that are so fun and catchy it makes us want to cruise on down to the VDub dealer. At the very least, it moved straight-laced businessmen to car-dance in the back seat in each other’s plain view.
