Biografie

People Under the Stairs are an underground hip hop group from Los Angeles, California. It comprises two self-proclaimed B-boys, Thes One and Double K. The group, also known as PUTS, has released four albums since 1998, and have since put out a record every two years, with the exception of 2004. Although widely unrecognized, PUTS is often considered one of the hip hop underground’s most prominent acts, with a musical style similar to that of A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde, and fellow Los Angeles group Ugly Duckling. PUTS is also renowned for their live shows, which feature a large amount of crowd interaction and humor.

History

Thes One (Chris Portugal) was born in Lima, Peru in 1977. His musical aliases include Thes One, Uncle Thester, Supreme One, Thessoterrorist, and Lord Radio. Double K (Michael Turner Jr.) is originally from Los Angeles, California, and was also born in 1977. He is also known to go by K Jackson, Dub K, L.A. Mike, Mikey, Kaos, Hale Bop, and Kidd Drunkadelic. The two met in Los Angeles in the late 1990s, and quickly proceeded recording their first album, The Next Step.

The Next Step

Recorded themselves before they had secured a deal the group sold it at gigs and would go out on the street with backpacks full of copies to sell it to anyone who would buy it. The Next Step would eventually be released in 1998, it was well received critically, and because of this success, the head of Om Records (Chris Smith) negotiated a contract with the group, leading to their 2000 album Question in the Form of an Answer.
