People Under The Stairs

The underground hip-hop outfit People Under the Stairs was formed by Mike Turner (Double K) and Chris Portugal (Thes One), who met on the fringe of L.A.'s late-'90s hip-hop underground. The duo, devoted to jazzy samples, danceable beats, intricate rhyming skills, and laid-back humor, debuted in 1998 with the acclaimed The Next Step and followed it up in 2000 with Question in the Form of an Answer. Gathering heavy praise and touring with De La Soul, the group took their road experiences and brought it to the studio to record their next album. The final results appeared in the summer of 2002 under the name O.S.T. Busy with individual side projects, the next People Under the Stairs album, Stepfather, didn't come out for another four years. ~ Steve Huey

This is fresh Hip-Hop!
Some people like cheap, popular coffee, some others like and know what to look like in the beans, integrity, etc...what I'm saying is that some people like Budweiser or Miller but true beer connoisseurs know these beers don't compare to the microbrews.
Just because something is popular doesn't make it a better product.
So basically Hip-Hop>Rap, one is the intelligent, eloquent and raw, the other one is simple, not intelligent and over produced.

Been fan since my early teen Hip-Hop nerd years when "Question In The Form Of Answer" dropped in '00. Hard to say but aforemention e d LP might be my favorite of theirs.

I've been to countless Hip-Hop shows & aforemention e d show is in my top 5 for sure. Many highlights but the part of show that really stands out in my memory was encore. Assumi
