New Balance and DJ Mars have officially launched their “Where Are You Running To Next?” microsite.
Films will be added throughout the rest of the year from industry notable notables. The site also includes the artists’ bios, favorite New Balance kicks and images of their very own Custom US574 designs.
Shouts to DJ Mars for putting these joints together. This is a GREAT look to getting the New Balance brand back in the game and where they need to be.

To date, Mars is currently touring with famed recording artist Keri Hilson and has personally spun at every club and major Platinum Party in Atlanta ranging from artists like Jay-Z and Diddy to Jermaine Dupri and Beyonce.
Back on July 8th I went thru Floyd The Locsmif ‘s Album Release event / Stay Productive Beat Showcase at 529 in ATL. The homie 4-Ize rocked, and I joined to perform “Hard To Quit The Rhyme” Check it out.
4-Ize goes off and performs ALF first. Shouts to Street Radio for the footage.
Video surfaced on the net today. Orchestrated by former G.O.O.D. Music artist Consequence.
I found this video very interesting for the fact I’ve been saying for years Kanye pulls people into his cipher, uses them as a muse for his own creative power and platform. But at the end of the day never provides them the proper platform they need for their art. I’ve been noticing this since Rhymefest helped him write Jesus Walks. If you listen to Ye from early in his career till now, you can here where he took some Que’s from Rhymefest, Consquence, Really Doe, GLC, Kid Cudi, etc.
Not saying I’m mad at him, just found it very interesting, my thoughts come from somebody on the outside looking in. Where this video has been put together by somebody on the inside looking out. Check it out for yourself.
Every person in this world has a purpose and a destiny. There a select few who are destined for greatness. Others are destined to insure that those who personify greatness remain GREAT… These are “The Puppet Masters”. It’s a known fact that no Kingdom is complete without it’s court. In this clip, we get a glimpse at some of “The Puppets”, old & new, in a “Certain” King’s Court and what they set out to achieve.
The World Is Watching!!!
There is a LOT of video trailers coming out of ATL right now. Which can only mean that there is a LOT of videos from the ATL Hip Hop scene on the way. Me & 4-Ize leaked the teaser for the “Hard To Quit The Rhyme” video about a week ago, Clan Destined hit you with the “War Games” trailer, and now the homie Big Rec just dropped this off. The song is called “Real Hip Hop Is Back” the video was directed by B. Price / Late September Films.
I actually made it out to this video shoot, it was LOT of energy on set. I can’t wait to see how the video came out. One thing is for sure, when it’s ready to go, The Kaos Effect will be posting it for your viewing pleasure.

Shouts to Not Those Kids, the homie KC Nevijay and Cameron Luck. Just a lil joint I did last weekend at GA Tech. Sometimes it’s just fun to let lose on a beat for min. It doesn’t always have to follow a certain formula or structure. Just straight spitting. Anyway check it out, hopefully you like it.
Caught this earlier today. Trailer for Clan Destined new video “War Games” directed by Rick Foy DVID Films. Man DVID Films is GETTIN BUSY this summer.
