Recap: Pigeons & Planes’ No Ceilings Showcase ft. Kemba, Kaiydo, Michael Christmas, & Boogie

posted by Ellena Rodriguez April 26, 2017

On 4/25, the Pigeons & Planes show, No Ceilings made a pit stop in Chicago’s Bottom Lounge to showcase some dope artists.

To kickoff the night, the rap duo of Chris Crack and Vic Spencer took the stage. Now known as Chri$ Spencer, the two took the audience by surprise as they were not listed to perform. Nonetheless, they set the mood right as they performed a few of their own tracks along with a few songs off of their joint project titled Who The Fuck Is Chri$ Spencer?

Next one up was Kemba, formally known as YC The Cynic. The Bronx rapper stepped into the spotlight with his vintage mic and gave us a mellow and poetic start to his set. He performed his well-known Frank Drake-produced track titled “Already” among other joints that kept everyone vibin’ to thanks to his rhythmic bars. He closed his set with a more energetic track as he had everyone chanting the chorus “Do yo know who you fuckin’ with!?”

20 year old Orlando native Kaiydo followed and showcased himself as an upbeat, yet versatile artist. His set was nothing short of fun as the audience sang along to his catchy tracks like “Arcade” and, of course: “Fruitpunch.” The young rapper hasn’t been in the industry for long and shared with the audience that No Ceilings is actually his first tour. With that, I was very impressed with his performance as he showed he is one artist to look out for.

After Kaiydo came Michael Christmas to command the mic and he was nothing short of memorable. The Boston rapper gave so much love to Chicago as he took many moments to appreciate the city. He even gave a shoutout to Harold’s Chicken (aaayyy). With that being said, Mickey’s chemistry with the crowd was incredible and his presence had everyone smiling. He even went over his set limit yet no one was complaining. From “Michael Cera” to “Grab Her Hand,” Mickey was definitely a highlight of the night.

Last but not least, the highly-anticipated performer of the night, it was finally time for Boogie to close things out. He managed to keep the energy high as everyone sang and danced along to his tracks. From “Oh My” to “Nigg* Needs,” Boogie made a modestly-sized crowd feel like a crowd 3X the size that was actually there. He closed the night off right and made it a night to remember.

A couple of days late on Astonish’s new project, but nonetheless we definitely had to feature To Who It May Concern. I have actually listened to this project a few times since it’s release and I was definitely vibing out to each and every track.

When someone puts out a project and claims that “they’ve been through a lot”, you sometimes can’t really feel it in their project. When I listened to To Whom It May Concern the first time, I surely felt everything that Astonish went through. It’s evident that Atonish has imprinted his blood, sweat, tears, feelings and so much more into this offering. I also noticed that Astonish brought the right mix of artists to express his feelings such as Treated Crew’s Mano on “My Theme Song”, JDott (RIP) on “Ride”, Jus’Q on “We Did It” & “Peace”, and Chris Crack on “Triple Beam”. Here’s the perfect scenario to listen to this album: Take a cruise down LakeShore Drive. Start at Montrose and literally go all the way down past South Shore Drive and into that new South Lake Shote Drive on 87th. Park up at Steelworkers Park. Light up. Listen to To Whom It May Concern below.

Chris Crack’s “Duct Tape On The Machete” off of his Public Domain 4 project has received the visual treatment. Equipped with some backup, Chris Crack walks down the street behind a pickup that also has a TV displaying the songs lyrics. Very cool stuff. Watch the new video above.
