Show Recap // Pigeons & Planes No Ceilings July 22

[Written and photos by Patrick Duncan, additional writing by Andy Tran]

On July 22nd, 2016, Pigeons and Planes along with Staple Pigeon brought their No Ceilings showcase back to New York at Brooklyn venue Baby’s All Right. The line up featured Khary, Trapo, Jimi Tents and Kamaiyah.

Brooklyn-based Khary, who has recently garnered lots of attention from his Intern Aquarium mixtape, opened the show. The self-proclaimed Captain Yellow Coat brought his bouncy songs to life by frequently jumping into the crowd to dance with fans and to pick up the energy, making the already smaller venue that much more intimate. He continued to keep the crowd involved instructing them to sing the lines “she said she was down for that” for his spin on a love song, “2AM Thirst Ballad.”

“My name is Khary. I think I’m a rapper,” he often joked between songs. His banter felt like short stand up comedy bits. Khary wrapped up his set amongst fans in the crowd and quickly stated how he had to go to work and couldn’t hang out for much longer. It still didn’t stop him from talking to fans and taking pictures on his way out.

Up next was Madison, Wisconsin’s Trapo, who’s captured attention with his wonderful mix of neo-soul and rap. This was his first time playing in New York, but the confidence and energy he brought to the stage made it feel like he’s done it hundreds of times. The wunderkind performed a powerful acapella version of his song “Tree,” alongside his more soulful tracks like “Chicago” and “She Moved On.”

Trapo also performed some tracks from his upcoming album Shade Trees, which if the songs are any indication, should be incredible and really propel him to the star he’s quickly becoming.

Fresh off tour with Justin Bieber, Brooklyn’s own Jimi Tents quickly commanded the stage. From the moment he started to the second he stopped, Tents did not let the energy come down, bringing out friends and fellow rappers Jay IDK and Justin Rose to raise it even higher.

Tents also performed a powerful new song, which touched on police brutality and the perception of black youth and culture as a whole. He ended his set on a high note with the anthem “Landslide”. As the entire crowd sang the chorus right back at him, you could feel how genuine and positive the up and comer was.


To close out the night, Oakland’s own Kamaiyah took the stage. The blossoming star recently grabbed the attention of the industry with her breakout mixtape, A Good Night in the Ghetto, and was all smiles at her first sold-out headlining show in NYC. You might recognize her from her viral hit with YG and Drake, “Why You Always Hatin?,” which was featured on Still Brazy. Needless to say, Pigeons & Planes’ latest No Ceilings event was a major success.

Khary & Lege Kale Recruit Sylvan LaCue For “Find Me” Remix

Earlier this year, Khary dropped one of my favorite projects to date, intern aquarium. As one the lead singles from the collection, “Find Me” serves as the perfect introduction to Captain Yellow Coat. With banging, brass-heavy production from Lege Kale, the cut has garnered several hundred thousand plays across all major streaming platforms, and recently received a proper visual treatment.

As if the track couldn’t get any hotter, Khary and Kale have enlisted talent from Florida’s own Sylvan LaCue to open the remix with confident back-to-back wordplay. Diving into the original heater we’ve memorized the words to, Khary spills introspection as he reflects on his career thus far and aspirations for the future. To top it all off, Kale slows down the tempo for the Swim Team captain to sneak in another aptly braggadocious verse, nothing short of a lyrical middle finger to the nonbelievers.
