P.O.S. - Goodbye - Free MP3

Is this the best video ever?



It's for 'Drumroll', one of the best tracks off Minneapolis rapper P.O.S.' new album 'Never Better', and one of many that uses a runaway drum roll as foundations for a track. If you've not heard this guy before he's a rare example of - whisper it with gritted teeth - rap-rock actually working. Although that's probably an unfair tag; he's more of a hip-hop guy raised on hardcore. Either way he harnesses enough aggression from both while skating the thin ice of credibility associated with this kind of hybrid.

P.O.S.

'Goodbye' is more of a straight-up pop tune, like a less cringey Kanye. Ignore the line about Latin being a dead language and turn up the bass...
