West Coast hip-hop music of the 1990s had a kickback vibe that transported listeners directly into the backyards of their favorite MCs. With their new album “Fun DMC,” People Under the Stairs take you back to a time before hip-hop made you think of commercials for Doritos, iPods, and reality TV. As an old school hip-hop fan, any reminder of that laid back Sunday afternoon hip-hop is welcome in my book, and this album is definitely worth listening to. The track ‘The Ultimate 144’ showcases the lyrical backbends of People Under The Stairs, and hits you with a bit of that old school feel. People Under the Stairs’ dedication to the old school shines through again in the track ‘Anotha (BBQ)’ which has already secured a solid place in my kick back summer time play list. The influences of 90s hip-hop are strong in this album, and serve as a welcome reminder of the hip-hop classics. As you find yourself drowning in chopped and screwed hooks and product placement in the current world of hip-hop music, People Under the Stairs throws out a musical life raft with their “Fun DMC” album. Whether you are throwing a funky house party or a backyard barbeque, “Fun DMC” will give you that break that you need, and carry you to another time in music, a time where there are no distractions between artist and listener, a time referred to by many as “back in the day.”
