Give him dap, because he‘s got ambition. P.O.S. has not only indirectly taken on the nickname of De La Soul‘s Posdnuous, but also revises the legend‘s entire "I Am I Be" for his own "De La Souls," which features the ironic chant "No one will ever be like me" from the Bouncing Souls‘ Greg Attonito. How‘s that for postmodern layering? Sure, the cat has balls and cameos, including appearances by Slug and The Hold Steady‘s Craig Finn; he‘s also got noise, on "Half-Cocked Concepts" and the self-explanatory "Stand Up (Let‘s Get Murdered)." So call it square and give the new jack‘s piece a chance.
