It all started in the early 90's at the Good Life, home of the West Coast underground hip hop scene. The boot camp for artists like Freestyle Fellowship, Kurupt, The Pharcyde, and Black Eyed Peas. Every Thursday night, a young cat by the name of Pigeon John would come out form the quiet streets of Hawthorne, CA to showcase his songs and skills. For the next several years, he grew and learned how to truly rock any crowd, whether it be hip hop or punk rock, he would adapt and relate to them with honesty. He was booed, he was praised and he was honed to become one of the most prolific MCs of his time.

In the recent years, he's been a part of the groups, Brainwash Projects and L.A. Symphony, whose albums, The Rise and Fall of... and Composition # 1, have been named classic by the underground. He's been featured on many compilations and has been shone brightly on countless guest appearances. Pigeon John has also toured the U.S. eight times over, as a soloist and with L.A. Symphony. He continued to make moves with LAS by becoming a featured artist on the summer tour, appearing in a two page Levi's adds in Spin magazine, and scoring a featured song in the movie Get Over It, starring Kristen Dunst and Sisqo. Along with 6 LAS songs, Pigeon John's song, "Identity Crisis" can be heard on the XBOX games, Project Gotham and NBA Inside Drive 2002. His independent debut album, Pigeon John is Clueless has sold over 11,000 copies out the trunk so far.
