At first hostile to hip-hop, as many of his fellow rockmusicians were, Alexander soon realized that rap was analternative,validmethod of expression. He begancreating music that was increasingly influenced by thegenre, despite having very littlerespectfor mainstreamrap.

In 2001 P.O.S., alongside rapper Syst (short for system)and DJ Anomaly (Jason Heinrichs) existed as a short-lived hip-hopgroup called Cenospecies. They stayedtogether long enough to put out an album titledIndefinition (2002). The groupwonthe award for BestBand to Break Up in the Past 12 Months in the year-endissue of The City Pages.

In the Minneapolis music scene, P.O.S. has becomeincreasingly known through his connections with localhip-hopcollectiveRhymesayers Entertainment, and hisCD is sold through their distribution network, includingtheir local store, FifthElement,and their webstore. He isalso distributed through the iTunes music store. P.O.S. isalso a founding member of the up-and-comingDoomtreecrew.

P.O.S. retains his punk rock influence in songs likeKidney Thief, but his music cannot easily be labelled. Hehas describedhismusic as "rap to skateboard to". Usingraw drum loops, punk rock bass guitar riffs and sharpwordplay, Alexander hascrafteda style that is largely hisown. In such songs as Kicking Knowledge in the Face, herails against those "mainstream"rapperswho obsessover material wealth. « hide
