People Undeer the Stairs Or Stay Tuned
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Om
Hear me out on this one: People Under the Stairs is the new Gangstarr. They're not going to replace Gangstarr-no one can-but they've got the veteran duo's same formula down pat, and consistency is their hallmark. This album gives you exactly what you'd expect from PUTS: entirely sample-based production with tons of soul, solid rhymes and a listening experience that won't blow you away, but is nonetheless very pleasing for the hip-hop purist. If you've been digging hip-hop for a long time, it'll be hard for you to not like this album.
