Oh my god, everyone is talking about P.O.S. nowadays in Minneapolis. I have to say something…
I thought he died, just kidding, I have been reading. Got to know what’s up on the Minneapolis Scene. Citypages did a spot on him a bit back, a girl I work with talks about him a bunch, knows Stefon Alexander personally, literally. Truth.
So, all this talk made me a little anxious. I mean why wait so long to put out more music? Oh yeah, quality control, excellente…
Last night, while getting incredibly drunk with the boys in our new house in SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS, Hammer (AKA) pulled out his fancy schmancy computer keyboard hooked up to the plasma in the living room to Youtube and bumped the above video from P.O.S.- Fuck Your Stuff.
Firstly, I had not heard a single song off of the new album,
yet, so I had no idea what to expect. I had been hearing some stuff, Coworker was talking a lot about how she had been listening to the CD a lot and was told not to hum the songs, even for a second, to avoid leaking anything. She said its amazing.
Secondly, I was impressed with the music and the video itself. I was kind of surprised; like, P.O.S. with a more matured and hardcore sound, keeping it real while being progressive, and sticking to his basic punk roots just happened in front of me. This song literally just happened and it was good. (I had to do a run on sentence to describe that, I know seems esoteric, but music is that way.) Rhyming on this song is pretty great; creative, controlled, P.O.S. is vocally amazing and intimidating.
I feel I can bump this on a decent system and it will bang. In this song P.O.S. is telling people what they want to hear, what he wants to say, and still remaining underground with the quality sound of mainstream hip hop, with actual quality. Production value sounds amazing on this song, the beat is unique, full, and boom-stuff. I am excited to hear more. I have been a P.O.S. fan for some time and have been looking forward to his fourth coming release.
This video is such a teaser-
P.O.S.’s new sound is just that new, incredibly vocally driven, with wit to it. I enjoy this song and can almost rest easy with the idea that this album will be sick. Whatever, I want to hear it. Send me a copy early please.
The release date is:
What Fuck Your Stuff does for me is reestablish my Love for Local Music, what P.O.S. has done, has made me want to buy his new material, as so many artist have not done recently. I have faith in Minneapolis, with a bunch of solid music coming out of here as of late. 2012 looks to be a good year for music in the Midwest, and especially a good year for Rhymesayers Entertainment.
