HipHopDX Premiere: Minneapolis-based MC P.O.S. (real name Stefon Alexander) of the almighty Doomtree Hip Hop collective has always stood out as one of the more politically-minded and vocal member of the bunch. From his anarchic views on government to punk rock ethos, the former Rhymesayers signee knows how to tap into the pulse of revolutionary-minded kids.
His latest video, “Lanes,” finds him donning a bright yellow hazmat suit, his only defense against heartbreak, something he’s clearly experienced before. Directed, produced, shot, and edited by Mercies May, the video also stars his (past?) love interest, Kiana Elohn. Considering he came up with the beat, it also easily demonstrate his DIY ethos.
“I made this beat with a bass guitar and a drum machine,” P.O.S. tells DX. “It’s a waltz. It’s about freaking out and trying to stay untouchable—and love.”
“Lanes” comes from his highly anticipated solo album, Chill, dummy, which is scheduled for a January 27 release via Doomtree Records. Watch the new video above.
