Here’s the thing about P&P – we don’t run a tight ship. I prefer it that way. I blog reckless. I make myself accessible. If you want to contact me you can do it through email, Facebook, or Twitter. There’s no script, there’s no official submission method, and there is very little order. I see more and more blogs turning into websites, taking on a more professional tone, and becoming more and more predictable. I don’t want that for Pigeons and Planes. Things get a little disorderly around here from time to time, but we’ll figure it out. For now, we stay focused on the music.
Last night I was looking for some new music and put out an open call on Twitter. This was one of the standout submissions. Capital Ode (pronounced: Kap- Tal Oh-Dee) is an artist from Brooklyn and this is his first single. He’s got a confident, unrushed flow that flirts with a 3 Stacks vibe from time to time. So many young rappers try to fake their way through a verse, putting on their best “rapper voice” and mimicking flows that have been spit to death. Something about Capital Ode seems completely natural, and I fuck with it. Check out “Success Or Death” below.
