I have loved the People Under the Stairs ever since I heard “Yeild” off Or Stay Tuned. Best fucking song ever, btw!
Anyway… no one in the US I ever mentioned the PUTS to has ever heard of them. It took me coming to fucking Spain to find someone who automatically knew who they were, without question. I mean, I didn’t even ask the girl “Do you know the People Under the Stairs are?”… all I said was I’m a banger, the kind you keep in yo’ disc changer and the girl went “Is that Double K?”. I mean… are you fucking serious. I mean, No. 1: she knows who Double K is; and No. 2: all I said was the mother fuckin’ lyric and she knew who, what, when, where and why…. and you guys think “Yeild” is a sign of caution? Mother fucker, that’s the number one signal you’re about to get fucking down.
How is it that, in a country where scarfs are accessories, they know more about hip hop than we do in the US? I think that’s why they hate us.
What the fuck is wrong with you guys?
Put in my two weeks notice on Friday. Just bought two tickets to Barcelona. Staying in Europe until my money runs out. Going to try to learn Spanish (not Catalan) and Italian (I really want to live on the Italian coast).
Never done anything like this before, so it doesn’t seem real. A little nervous about what I’m going to do when my money runs out, but still…. I’m VERY FUCKING EXCITED.
