P.O.S.'s video for "Get Down" has one thing to say: no matter who you are or where you're from, everyone can get down to the Minneapolis rapper's beats. People from all walks of life get together to dance their asses off in the presence of P.O.S. and Mike Mictlan, with everyone putting their best moves to the test. Watch the replay above.

The latest LP from P.O.S., We Don't Even Live Here, is out today via Rhymesayers Entertainment, and, in case you haven't heard, the rapper has postponed his North American tour due to a sudden need for a kidney transplanet.

[Listen] P.O.S. - 'We Don't Even Live Here' (Full Album Stream)

We are a week away from the release of one of the best, if not the best album of 2012 so far, the new album We Don't Even Live Here by Doomtree/Rhymesayers rhymespitter P.O.S. Yesterday, Pitchfork debuted the 3rd single from the album "Get Down" featuring Mike Mictlan but today thanks to the good folks at MPLS radio station The Current, you can here the album in it's entirity. Peep this amazing LP below which features guest spots from Bon Iver, Astronautalis, Marijuana Deathsquads and more. And if you haven't already pre-ordered the album you should do so NOW.

We Don't Even Live Here drops next Tuesday 10/16. Stay tuned into SKoA and peep our review for the album coming soooooon.

[$FREE.99] Mike Mictlan (of Doomtree) - 'SNAXXX'

It's always awesome to be a Doomtree fan! Especially this year with the multiple releases that the crew has put out like Lazerbeak's Lava Bangers, the Doomtree crew album No Kings, Paper Tiger's Summer EP and free Beat Tape and the upcoming album from P.O.S. We Don't Even Live Here, it's hard not be excited and supportive of one of hip hop's best if not THE BEST collective there is out there. Why do you think they are called "Team The Best Team"?

In addition to all the releases I listed above, we get another album from Doomtree member, Z3R0K00L himself Mike Mictlan titled SNAXXX. The album is the first solo release from Mike since his collaborative record with Doomtree producer Lazerbeak, Hand Over Fist. However, unlike most of Doomtree's releases, Mictlan's SNAXXX features one cut of Doomtree production by Paper Tiger while the majority of the album is produced by newcomer 2% Muck (Tha Clerb, Spyder Baybie Raw Dog) and also features some of the midwest's up and coming rappers such as Lizzo, Greg Grease, Spyder Baybie Raw Dog and Freez but also features Doomtree partner-in-crime P.O.S. for 2 tracks on the album.

It's a bit of change of the normal formula that we are used to from members of the crew but it's still a dope record nonetheless. You can stream the album below and then head to group's bandcamp site to download the record for free or by naming your own price if you wish to show support. WHICH YOU SHOULD ALWAYS DO! So that dope artists like Mike keep continuing doing what you and them love and thats putting out good music. Need more convincing (you shouldn't) peep the awesome promo above.

You can also pick up the album in physical form in a sweet deluxe package of the album titled SNAXXX PAXXX, which includes an autographed 15 track CD, multi-colored screen printed t-shirt, 11x17 3D SNAXXX Magic Eye Poster, 2 different stickers, and a gummy pizza candy, all packaged inside of a special screen printed "MIKE'S SNAXXX" pizza box. There have only been 300 physical PAXXX created, so get your ass to the Doomtree Store and pick one of those up as fast as you can.

Mike will be on tour with P.O.S. in support of his new album We Don't Even Live Here dropping this month. Check out the tour dates after the jump.

[Watch] Doomtree - "Beacon"

Team The Best Team aka Wings and Teeth aka Minneapolis hip hop collective Doomtree return with a brand new video off one of my favorite albums of 2011 No Kings. Although the album dropped back in November, the Doom Crew have been busy touring in support of their latest record and if you heard it in all its epicness you would understand why. But even with their crazy schedule the crew still finds time to put out some awesome videos like their latest steampunk themed visual for the No Kings' cut "Beacon" directed by Bo Hakala.

This dark and gritty video is one of my favorite videos that the collective have put out to date. Although it isn't Har Mar Superstar getting down(to his bare ass, literally) to some "Bangarang" karaoke, this video speaks for itself on how creative these group of artist are and also showcases the always beautiful Dessa, Sims looking like a crazed maniac while Mike Mictlan creeping around in the shadows which I call an all around win. But anyways, enough talk check the video out above and if you haven't already picked up No Kings (FOR SHAME) do so here.

If you still haven't caught the group on tour like myself (I know sad, right?) you still have a chance to catch them at the following events:
