Minneapolis-based rapper P.O.S. is celebrating his return from a kidney transplant by headlining "The Best F---ing Show Ever" block party in downtown Minneapolis this Saturday.

P.O.S. – also known as Stefon Alexander – will be joined by artists SZA, Poliça (DJ set), Le1f, Busdriver, Open Mike Eagle and others at the show, located on the northeast corner of 1st Avenue North and 4th Street North – by Pizza Luce.
