It will come as no surprise to fans of the show, but I am a huge People Under the Stairs fan, so it was disheartening to hear the sad news of Michael ‘Double K’ Turner’s passing over the weekend. Given this, it was a no-brainer to start out the show paying tribute to Double K with some PUTS.

With that dynamic duo as a jump off, we then spent the rest of the show spotlighting great hip hop duos.
