At first hostile to hip-hop, as many of his fellow rockmusicians were, Alexander soon realized that rap was analternative,validmethod of expression. Hebegancreating 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 12Months 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 theiTunes music store. P.O.S. isalso a founding member of the up-and-comingDoomtreecrew. P.O.S. retains his punk rock influence in songs like Kidney Thief, but his music cannot easily be labelled. Hehas described his music as "rap to skateboard to". Using raw drum loops, punk rock bass guitar riffs and sharpwordplay, Alexander has crafted a style that is largely his own. In such songs as Kicking Knowledge in the Face, he rails against those "mainstream"rappers who obsess over material wealth. « hide
