P.O.S. is a Rhymesayers (i.e. Minneapolis hip-hop) act who deserves to break out -- listen to his most recent single. His Mercury Lounge show last month was packed with midwest refugees, but I've been trying to convert the coasties. His background is in hardcore, which he brought with him when he crossed over several years ago. All of this would suggest that covering Pearl Jam's "Why Go?" in his basement would ultimately be the worst mistake ever, but it's surprisingly great. [via]


If you like that, I also recommend some Seattle hip-hop Champagne Champagne.

Rex, you gotta cold drrrrrop the third period from P.O.S--Minneapolis' conscious hip hop community has this weird street thing about respect and race and idiosyncratic spelling. Trust me, bro. You don't wanna go there if you don't have to.
