Minneapolis rapper P.O.S. has announced that his latest album, We Don’t Even Live Here, will be released on Oct. 23. The record includes collaborations with Ryan Olson of Gayngs, Boyz Noize, the Doomtree collective, and most notably, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. (Vernon, already a favorite of Kanye West, has certainly been doing this sort of thing a lot lately, having also just announced another hip-hop collaboration with another Minneapolis rapper, Astronautalis, that will be produced by Olson.)
P.O.S.’s new album follows 2009’s Never Better, a record which The A.V. Club gave a B+ for its “verbally dexterous, rapid-fire syllable-spitting and a nimble sense of rhythm with lyrics that are clever, self-reflective, and full of sharp-edged political statements.”
