Rhymesayers labelmate

P.O.S.

is getting nationwide press play for his new album (reviewed

here

in City Pages; scroll down)--including an "A-" in

Spin

. I missed his show a couple weeks ago in New Orleans, but my friend Machelle told me he faced a crowd of less than a hundred at the Howlin' Wolf, and made the event special by getting down offstage and performing his whole set on the floor. (Check out

Truthmaze

's Saturday Varsity set was well-attended and fun as hell, while the

Unknown Prophets

' ID show the same night at the Triple Rock was sold-out chaos (at one point, DJ Willy Lose appeared in a chicken suit--'nuff said). Oh, and

Trama

is going into the studio this week with

Cheap Cologne

to work on a new album.
