P.O.S is a founding member of the Doomtree Collective, a nine member group of MCs, Producers, and DJs. His First EPs (Dubbed “False Hopes”) and debut album, Ipecac Neat were originally released exclusively through Doomtree. The album caught the attention of Rhymesayers Entertainment, who in 2004 signed him and re-released the album. Since that point, his solo albums have been jointly released By Doomtree and Rhymesayers.

In January 2006, his sophomore record, “Audition” was released, raising his profile nationally. Since then, he has mainly focused on Doomtree associated projects; in 2007 the whole collective released a False Hopes, and in 2008 the group released its self-titled Debut Album. Shows throughout Minneapolis and the country are usually supported by other members of the collective.

In February 2009 he released the much anticipated follow-up to “Audition.” The album, titled “Never Better“, was released with a unique form of album art. The liner notes, which include six transparent slides, can be rearranged to put the listeners own personal touch on the cover and backing art. The first single, “Drumroll”, which also had a video premiere on MTV U, was received well among college and alternative radio alike.
