It’s been a minute (read: years) since P.O.S blessed us with an album, but the Minneapolis-bred emcee/producer is putting an end to the drought with the release of Chill, dummy on January 27th via Doomtree Records.
Following the release of We Don’t Even Live Here in 2012, P.O.S was forced to put music on the back burner after a health scare derailed his career. Two years later, diagnosed with kidney cancer, he received a transplant.
Earlier this year, after another two years or rehabilitating and getting his life back together, Stefon Alexander returned with “sleepdrone/superposition” — an explosive, near-nine-minute track that found him recollecting on the struggles of his health issues and their affect on both his personal and musical lives.
Now, with a new outlook on life, P.O.S is looking to share his thoughts to the world with his first full-length in over four years.
Dubbed his “most bold, honest, and daring work to date,” Chill, dummy will contain 12 tracks in total — including the previously-released “Wearing A Bear” and “sleepdrone/superposition” — with contributions from Allan Kingdom, Open Mike Eagle, Justin Vernon, his Doomtree family, and more.
Along with the announcement, P.O.S has also shared the self-produced “Lanes.”
