Recently fellow High Water Music label-mate Fresh Daily released a free album in conjunction with Converse x Foot Action x Complex Magazine entitled “The Brooklyn Good Guy.” I got my ears on this a few weeks back and have been enjoying it so much that I forgot I never shared it with the rest of you. Sorry I was being stingy. Check it out…
Converse & Complex team up with Brooklyn emcee Fresh Daily to present “The Brooklyn Good Guy” 12 tracks of heat to set your summer off right.
In addition to the music, it also looks like Converse is using this project to market the new Chuck Talyor All Star “Padded Collar” sneaker. Yo Fresh! Gone and send me a pair of those joints so I can stay fresh too.

10 days after the A3C Festival ended, I took a trip up to NYC for the 2011 CMJ Festival. On Tuesday night I made a surprise appearance during Fresh Daily’s set at Drom for the Brooklyn Bodega showcase.
Then on Thursday I rocked at the Thompson Hotel for the Digiwaxx showcase. Both were super short sets, but new fans were made, and that’s what counts. The Kaos Effect LP is coming 11.11.11. Can’t wait for y’all to hear it.
Shouts to everybody in NYC who I caught up with on this trip: Sucio Smash, J-Live, Fresh Daily, P.So, Homeboy Sandman, J, Sue, Mimi, Chief Jus, Miss Al Boogie, Navani, Timm See, Teddy Ted, Photo Rob, CL, Pharoahe Monch, Willie Evans Jr., YC, John Robinson, Jessica, DJ Eleven, DJ Eclipse, Skizz, Petey Cologne, DJ Evil Dee, Mr. Walt, Crazy DJ Bizarro, etc.
SENOR KAOS ANNOUNCES NOVEMBER 11th (11.11.11) RELEASE DATE FOR “THE KAOS EFFECT” LP, RELEASES ARTWORK, TRACK LISTING, PLUS NEW SINGLE.
The time has finally come for Atlanta emcee Señor Kaos to release his highly anticipated album via indy label High Water Music. The LP entitled The Kaos Effect shares the same name as Kaos’ website (thekaoseffect.com) which was created in 2007 as a way to connect with fans.
“The Kaos Effect album is a snap shot of my life from the years 2000 through 2010. Throughout the listeners journey you will hear stories about my trails and tribulations of becoming an artist, quitting my job to follow my passion, starting my own company, making money, losing money, traveling the world, getting evicted, and dealing with the death of a fellow solider and friend,” says Kaos.
“The title The Kaos Effect describes all the small pieces I’ve collected over a decade which now have been put together to create a great puzzle. A lot of people know me for different things. Some know me because of my website, or the Blogs, while others know me strictly through my marketing related work, and some only know me for my popular interviews with Hip Hop artists like (Ghostface, Pharoahe Monch, B.O.B., DJ Clark Kent, Little Brother, Wale, Game, etc.). So the overall goal of this record, is for me to share a piece of my story with the world so they can understand why people call Señor Kaos The Most Interesting MC In The World.”
The album is produced entirely by Atlanta mainstay Illastrate. The first song and video released from the project “Automatic Classic” is currently available for purchase on iTunes via High Water Music.
“Me and Illastrate started working on this project three years ago. At first the plan was to create an EP of 5 or 6 songs. Once we reached that goal, Illa came up with the idea to produce a full album for me. In a time where emcees look for several great producers to create a sound for their project, I chose to work with only one. When there’s one person who understands your artistry and sound, it makes the process of creating that much more easier. Illastrate is ATL’s best-kept secret when it comes to production, but hopefully he won’t be anymore once the world hears The Kaos Effect.”
In addition to Illastrate’s production the album also features guest artists: J-Live, Fresh Daily, Binkis Recs, Ekundayo, Ozy Reigns, Lyric Jones, Fort Knox and includes cuts by DJ Dainja. The album will be released in physical and digital formats on Friday November 11, 2011 (11.11.11) via New York based Indy label High Water Music. (highwaterISmusic.com).
“Its Like That” featuring ATL emcee Ekundayo is the first leak to be released fromThe Kaos Effect.

“This project has a mature quality and sound. It feels celebratory and accomplished in a very laid back, effortless way. That’s a direct result of stopping and appreciating the finer aspects of my everyday life.” – Fresh Daily

Last weekend in ATL they had the release party for the SMKA Vol. 3 project. I made it stop thru there to see what the homie 4-Ize was talking bout. I also picked up my copy of the SMKA Vol. 3 CD. For those unfamiliar Señor Kaos was featured on Vol. 2 on a song with Fresh Daily and Kid Neer.
During the evening 4-Ize performed his song off the project which is called “Four 16′s.” The name comes from the song being composed of 4 16 bar verses put together with no hook. After he ripped this joint, I joined him on stage to help out with the song “Rap Sucks,” off his “Professional Ignorant” project.
If you haven’t heard Four 16′s yet check it out below. Also make sure you CLICK HERE to download the entire SMKA Vol. 3 project which features over 30 up and coming new spitters!

Check it out party people, my homie Fresh Daily just dropped his new project “Mothership / L A N D” and it’s available for FREE Download. Here is the joint we have together. It’s called “In The Air” and it’s produced by Melo-X
Background Story: Here’s the story behind the record. As I was landing at the airport in New York City I shot the homie Fresh Daily a text msg, letting him know I was in town for a hot second. Fresh hits me back and says “I’m in the studio all day today, I’ll be here till about 7pm.” So what do I do? I get off the plane, get me a Metrocard hop on the bus and make my way up to the South Bronx.
When I get to lab Fresh is working on some things for his new project. He played me the beat for “In The Air” and told me what he was thinking, I listened for a min, wrote my verse on the spot and recorded it. And the rest as they say … Is History.
Also Fresh Daily has a record with me on my new upcoming album “The Kaos Effect.” Fresh stays on his grind in NYC, He rhymes, gets busy on the graphics, and knows EVERYBODY! Proud to be able to work with the homie. Enough story… Listen to some music.
And if you like that joint, make sure you check the WHOLE project. You can download it for Free HERE & get more info HERE.
It’s rare that I make a stop in NYC and not go by WKCR 89 Tech 9 for the Squeeze Radio Show. After moving around the city ALL day, and getting to the radio station at 1am the kid was TIRED. I kicked a couple raps, then ended up falling alseep… yes falling asleep right at the radio station. HA. But I had a ball. I got a chance to listen to Dj Evil Dee tell some stories from his travels. Also caught up with my Famalams Sucio Smash, Mr. Len, Fresh Daily, and the 2 Hungry Bros.
Oh what a show! Mr Len came by to handle the co-hosting duties. Brokn Englsh stopped by to talk about their project with The Are. 2 Hungry Bros and Fresh Daily kicked it about the 2 Hungry Bros/8thW1 album “No Room For Dessert” and their show on Monday night. A very tired and sleepy Señor Kaos came by the studio to drop off his new album “The Kaos Effect” and DJ Evil Dee blessed the very messed up WKCR turntables with a special Duck Down 15th anniversary mix.
Take notes out there, this is what classic radio sounds like.
