The youth are exploding. Unchecked, the traditions and rules that have upheld hip hop´s subculture status have begun to crumble amidst over–commercialized, mass produced music. There was a time, though, when there was a frame of reference. This was a time when beats consisted of looped music (an evolution of the DJ going back and forth with funky breaks), rhymes that reflected the nuances of everyday b–boy life, scratching that musically captured the rhythms and sounds of a passing city, and of course, soul. The People Under The Stairs are stuck in this era, and their art is much more than their music, it is the vibe they convey through it. In June of 2002, PUTS return with O.S.T. (Original Sound Track), a journey inward, and the third step forward.
