P.O.S. breaks sh*t in "F*ck Your Stuff" video

"We genuinely believe that all of your shit is fake," P.O.S. exults amid the madness of "Fuck Your Stuff," the latest video to rupture forth in the lead up to We Don't Even Live Here's October 23 release. His larger goal: Scuffing up rap's long-held obsession with "the finer things." He'd not only prefer to live without material obsession himself, but he's coming after your stuff with a spray paint can, some explosives, a brick, and loads of lyrical mortar.
With Doomtree ally Mike Mictlan, who was also onstage with him Sunday evening for a surprise performance at Icehouse's Totally Gross National Party, the Minneapolis rapper plays in a graffiti-filled concrete jungle filmed at the Northrup King building up in Northeast. A guitar gets torched, a lot of shoes get melted, and a sports car gets tagged to all hell.
And remember how brand and slogans on shirts and hats started getting blurred out in rap videos on MTV back in the G-Funk Era? Here, it's like the pixelations are threatening to take over the entire flammable video, directed by Isaac Gale and David Jensen.
