Hot damn I like the idea behind the song "Gamin' On Ya" by People Under The Stairs. I saw these dudes live on my 19th birthday, right before leaving for college, and they absolutely killed it. If I remember correctly they were touring with DJ DP One and El Da Sensei. One particularly memorable part of their show consisted of them wheeling out an original Nintendo and using the sounds from the video game to make a beat.
"Gamin' On Ya" executes the video game sample idea flawlessly. It is the perfect length and utilizes some tight sample change ups to keep the listener on their toes. Thes One and Double K also do a great job of dropping verses that evoke nostalgia for the good ol' days when a great weekend consisted of ordering pizza and playing video games 'til 5 a.m. with your boys.
In addition to "Gamin' On Ya", the rest of Fun DMC, PUTS most recent effort, is really solid throughout and well worth picking up. To cop that shit, click here.
