Biography

Kelvin Mercer (born August 17, 1969) is a rapper, producer, and one-third of the groundbreaking hip hop trio De La Soul. He is known more famously by his alias Posdnuos, or simply Pos.

As a member of De La Soul, Pos is generally regarded as one of the most consistent and underrated MCs of all time. Like the other members of the group, he is now an elder statesman of hip hop music. This is a fact which, through the years, Pos has used to impart some of his hard-earned experiences in songs such as “Held Down”, and “Trying People”, from AOI: Bionix. On the latter, he raps: “We were supposed to rid the world of danger / These days we nod heads and small talk like polite strangers / It’s natural to fall off, just land close to the tree / I’ll be there if they need me to be”

Pos is also known for his witty, double entendre-laden battle rhymes. For example in “Down Syndrome” from 1996’s Stakes Is High, he states: “I be a piece of the East Coast, so give a toast to Plug Wonder Why / Back in the day who soaked his words in ginger / So when I ran a phrase in June, you didn’t catch it ‘til December”.

Posdnuos is a member of the Spitkicker collective.
