The story behind this release was that it was originally a “fake leak” of the People Under The Stairs’ 2006 album Stepfather. Weeks before the release of Stepfather, P.U.T.S. deliberately leaked this parody record under the guise of “Stepfather Advance” on sites like Limewire to discourage illegal downloading. Yeah, that worked pretty well.
The end result was a generic hip-hop record of cliche rap songs like “Lyrical Miracles”, “4 Elementz”, “Sucka Emcees” and more, performed by P.U.T.S. We loved the idea, so we got with the group and pressed up Redheaded Stepfather: The Fake Leak, as a free bonus disc for those that pre-ordered Stepfather. Full circle, son.
