P.O.S
Doomtree co-founder, punk philosopher and lyrical bomb-thrower Stefon Alexander, aka P.O.S makes tight, declamatory music that builds on the Minneapolis-bred rapper and producer's penchant for grinding beats and radical lyrics. Known for welding hip-hop with guitar squalls, screamed vocals, and futuristic beats fit for a Berlin nightclub, P.O.S steps even further into genre-blurring territory with "sleepdrone/superposition," a nearly nine-minute-long sprawling masterpiece that touches on "being black, beefs, loves, hurts, victories, pride and the future" all while reflecting over the past two years since a kidney surgery sidelined him from making music. It's never felt better to have him back in action.
Dwynell Roland
Dwynell was born and raised in North Minneapolis, and has been rapping since the age of 13. During that time when he first started writing, he was part of a collective called TCB (Twin City Boyz). His time with the TCB was spent largely perfecting his craft of freestyling, and honing his knack for writing songs with a stylistic flair similar to T3 of Slum Village or Schoolboy Q, perfecting his style while maintaining a writing style similar to Joe Budden. This is mostly shown when he has dropped various freeverses via his YouTube page, showing his effervescence over such beats as "Stay Schemin'" and "Shine Blockas".
Dwynell's experience doing recorded material was on his first mixtape, Upside, which has shown the strides he's made to perfect his songwriting craft, all the while making sure his style was at the forefront, with almost a drawl and depth to his voice. Dwynell released his debut EP, "Make Due" in October of 2012, and then started subsequent work on writing material for his album, called "92 and Roland", which continues to show vast improvement from his days in his teens, and freely talking about topics of partying and reflection, delivering feel-good jams that leave a listener with no choice but to nod and enjoy the various personas that Dwynell possesses.
With the release of his "Factors" EP in August 2014, Dwynell started to explore more serious subject matters, such as on the track "She" about the quest for love gone awry, and that led him to new territory, such as garnering an opening spot on Prof Outdoors in 2016. Shortly after his performance, he released a new project called "The Popular Nobody," a project that allowed Dwynell to crank the volume up to 11 and show why he is one of the standouts of the new crop of rappers hailing from Minneapolis.
