35. People Under the Stairs "Acid Raindrops" (2002)
Album: O.S.T. (Original Soundtrack)
Producer: Thes One and Double KThe daring west-coast duo People Under the Stairs were the opposite of gangster. Dropping surreal lyrics reminiscent of black beat poet Bob Kauffman, this song is both streetwise and book smart as it details the cosmic adventures of a So-Cal weed head.
Produced by group member Thes One, who flips a sample of David T. Walker's “Lay Lady Lay,” “Acid Raindrops” featured guest-star MC Camel, whose catchy refrain, “…when the stress burns my brain just like acid raindrops / Mary Jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop,” keeps whirling through mind like a cannabinoid carousel.
