People Under the Stairs Acid Raindrops
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Om
This cut wouldn't sound out of place on The Low-End Theory. It's got that warm and funky but slightly melancholy vibe to it, like the last people at a house party drunkenly spouting wistful philosophies. The rapping's not flashy, but sits snugly in the pocket. On the B-side, "Hang Loose Part 2" is OK, but doesn't live up to the first "Hang Loose;" "Montego Slay" brings an appealing midtempo groove. PUTS aren't that blow-your-mind group, and that's why they succeed. They prove that doing the basics doesn't make them everyday People.
