At first hostile to hip-hop, as many of his fellow rock musicians were, Alexander soon realized that rap was an alternative,valid method of expression. He began creating music that was increasingly influenced by the genre, despite having very littlerespect for mainstream rap.

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 stayed together long enough to put out an album titled Indefinition (2002). The group wonthe award for Best Band to Break Up in the Past 12 Months in the year-end issue of The City Pages.

In the Minneapolis music scene, P.O.S. has become increasingly known through his connections with local hip-hop collectiveRhymesayers Entertainment, and his CD is sold through their distribution network, including their local store, Fifth Element,and their webstore. He is also distributed through the iTunes music store. P.O.S. is also a founding member of the up-and-coming Doomtreecrew.

P.O.S. retains his punk rock influence in songs like Kidney Thief, but his music cannot easily be labelled. He has described hismusic as "rap to skateboard to". Using raw drum loops, punk rock bass guitar riffs and sharp wordplay, Alexander has crafteda style that is largely his own. In such songs as Kicking Knowledge in the Face, he rails against those "mainstream" rapperswho obsess over material wealth. « hide
