opbmusic Presents: People Under The

Double K and Thes One, of the underground hip-hop duo People Under The Stairs, do their share of freestyling in this song, "Tuxedo Rap," recorded live at Pickathon. The song was a high point in a set that seemed perfectly in tune with its setting: a warm August Saturday night, the woods on the festival grounds, a mellow crowd and kids at the front of the stage.

Each month through the start of the 2015 Pickathon festival, opbmusic and NPR Music will release another video recorded on the Woods Stage at Pickathon, hand-picked by opbmusic to showcase some of the most exciting performances from last summer's lineup. The next premiere takes place on June 16.
