    Maybe the raps weren't the strong point, but the beats were great. I've picked up various singles from PUTS over the years, always for the strength of the instrumentals.
    Anyway, never really listened to QITFOAA, another surprise addition to the top 100.

    Doh, sold my copy a while back. (breakface) But I remember I definitely used to jam this one...


  • Should I stay out ofthis thread?

    The LP is solid. July 3rd and Give Love a Chance are my jams. Although internet always hates on their rhymes the story telling on "Give Love a Chance" speaks to me, plus the Don Blackmon loop? You DJ dudes should understand the plight. Also would much rather listen to this than Tom Scott, just sayin.

  • Beats are alright, some even pretty good. The rapping.... not so much.

    The album is solid from start to finish and you can see the improvement from The Next Step.

    really dope production. I got a copy of the we'll be there single signed by a slightly faded double k.
    PUTS is still one of the best rap shows I've ever been to.

    I bought this album before I knew who Thes was. I got it at Sandbox Automatic in the early 00's. I like it.

  • It's all about this song right here:

  • Hard to believe this record is 12 years old!
    A little history on this record:

    Recorded during Nov. 1998 - Dec. 1999 at 2228 Cambridge Street, Los Angeles, 90006 (two doors down from Captain Puff's release address and a block away from Jimmy Jules release address)

    Released officially June, 2000.

    I produced the album on an MPC 3000, except for Suite For Creeper, E Business and Zignaflyinblow which were produced by Double K on the SP1200. It was our first release on Om Records, our sophomore album following The Next Step.

    We pretty much didn't give a shit about teh raps (beatnut influence). Had an album advance, had started touring the world, had $$, alcohol, etc.
    I was worried about making beats, buying records and getting deeper into diggin teh raerz from all over. This record culminated in us doing a session at BBC Maida Vaile (sp?) and performing Redding, Leeds and a top spot at Glastenbury 2001.

    I'm honored we made the list but for the record I wrote in OST for the survey which i feel is a much more worthy record. That said, DocBoy opened the can of worms with that stupid imposter thread which got my Salma Hayek here, and the rest is well... Heatrocks, Biz Mark, etc. Glad to still be here. Just released album 8, Highlighter which is now available with instrumentals on Itunes and at pl70.net

    fwiw, I still want to know who was aliasing as me and sending those pms.

    yo thes, you edged out joe quarterman! thats good shit

    i'm still looking forward to seeing a live PUTS show here in philly someday.

    The new guy puts two and two together and first thought is.......Hell naw, really?!

    I'm outta here, lol

    I haven't heard this one. I have a couple, maybe 3 other PUTS LPs which I dig (i'm not really a hip hop dude though).

    The Next Step or OST better be in the SS100 list ! QITFOAA is my least favorite PUTS album.

    PUTS is hurting the underground hiphop scene with this kind of nonsense.

    Hahaha -- that old thread was a classique. I may have to give this ish a relisten for old time's sake. I think I still have the backpack that came with the record.

    Thanks for the additional context, Thes. Best of luck with the new PUTS record. All you clons should cop.

    lol.
    It warms my heart that at the time, two 20 year old kids from LA were unknowingly creating so much angst on the interwebz.

    Faux never did like me on here. :weird:

  • EIGHTYEIGHTY 222 Posts
    Ok, I gotta ask. Who is Faux Rillz?

    Nah, we can wait till the list is done and then the real debate starts.

  • PUTS rekkids are great, but really OST or Stepfather should show up much closer to #1 if you're going to include this one. Either way, good to see PUTS represented (backpack (wetarded term) love or not).

    I think this is why this Soulstrut 100 is so dope. Completely subjective and really shows the demographic and audience of this board.

    This was my immediate reaction too, but this list is more about Soul Strut-centricty/relevance than a flat out Top 100 records ever.

    I'd love to know how many votes these records received.
