Composed of Thes One and Double K, the L.A.-based underground hip-hop duo known as People Under the Stairs have been serving up clever rhymes over feel-good B-Boy-centric beats since the late 1990s. After independently recording and distributing their first LP, THE NEXT STEP, in 1998, the duo secured a deal with San Francisco label Om Records. Their critically-acclaimed second album, QUESTION IN THE FORM OF AN ANSWER, appeared in 2001 and marked PUTS’s arrival as one of the most prominent underground acts on the West Coast. After another LP (O.S.T) and EP (…OR STAY TUNED) with Om, the crew formed PUTS Records in 2006 which distributed their fourth album, STEPFATHER. Another release, FUN DMC, appeared in 2008 on Gold Dust Media.
