Never Better – P.O.S

P.O.S returns with Never Better, the follow up to 2006’s critically acclaimed Audtion. On Never Better he conjures get-away cars, racing chariots, the pursuit of sirens, and the occasional rueful nighttime drive. Written mostly in a moving car, P.O.S raps at full clip to ride rolling drums and revving distortion. There’s an urgency that he keeps in careful check, and then unleashes for spring-loaded verses that represent his best work. Never Better enters a room like bombshell with a black eye—badass, noisy, and impossible to ignore. Feedback and relentless drum rolls are only occasionally tempered by sung choruses and clean, chiming guitar lines. With an unlikely punk rock past and an ever growing loyal hip hop fan base, P.O.S proves he is a rapper with range, a real musician and an unstoppable performer. Don’t mistake Never Better for some hybrid or some contrived crossover project because for P.O.S genres are as they ever were: permeable.

Produced by P.O.S, Lazerbeak, Paper Tiger & MK Larada.
