People Under The Stairs’ 20-year run in Hip Hop is coming to an end. Thes One and Double K have revealed their final album Sincerely, The P will be released on February 1.
Last October, Thes One announced his retirement as a professional musician. PUTS originally planned on dropping their last LP in 2018, but the album was delayed until 2019. Thes One updated fans on Thursday (January 17), sharing the new release date in an Instagram post.
“Too many people to thank but the family, friends & fans who have been patient with me as I struggled to finish this have all of my love,” he wrote. “The weight of finishing the P catalogue, the pressure I put on myself and the expectation was overwhelming at times – I only hope that the album is judged not in isolation but as a bookend to an uncompromising 20 year career in DIY Hip-Hop and the final of our 12 steps.”

Too many people to thank but the family, friends & fans who have been patient with me as I struggled to finish this have all of my love. The weight of finishing the P catalogue, the pressure I put on myself and the expectation was overwhelming at times – I only hope that the album is judged not in isolation but as a bookend to an uncompromising 20 year career in DIY Hip-Hop and the final of our 12 steps. Thank you @drewtoonz for the amazing artwork and support through this project. I owe a huge thank you to @kato1o and @chiefbargus for their selfless and stellar contributions to this record – you elevated this to another level and never asked me for a dime in return. It was art for arts sake and I’m truly humbled to glimpse a view from the shoulders of you two giants. To @headnodic and @maxatrillion_music for jumping in and locking shit down. To @masteredbymike for being my therapist throughout this. To @tyler_karmen for shaping the sound, @alexboomin for bringing O-man back and my @chemistrysurfboards fam for being cops on the lp. @jazziemakuno @blewfoot_funkadelic for jumping on it and @djday for making sure we had everything we needed. To @plyman for opening up your house and studio to me in Nashville like the best big brother you’ve always been to me. @culturama for holding us down for so many years and to everyone else – thank you and get ready for the final chapter. #sincerelythep
Last August, PUTS returned with single titled “Drinking & Jivin.” The duo hasn’t released a project since 2016’s The Gettin’ Off Stage: Step 2 EP.
Thes One and Double K kicked off their 20-year run in 1998 with the release of their debut album The Next Step. The LP’s title track and lead single “The Next Step II” was famously featured in Tony Hawk’s Underground, the fifth entry in the popular Tony Hawk video game franchise.
