Peeped this joint earlier today. A piece on CNN speaking about how hip-hop changed marketing in America. Interesting commentary on both sides. Even better they showed clips from the homies 4-Ize and Kaos’ video Hard to Quit the Rhyme. Thats a good look! Check the CNN video below..
And after that check the Ultra Beast video Hard to Quit the Rhyme if you havent already!
Last Thursday myself and 4-Ize formed Ultra Beast and rocked at the Hip Hop DX showcase during A3C. Hip Hop DX is one the premier Hip Hop websites on the net right now, so not only was it a honor to rock their showcase, but it’s also a honor that our new video for “Hard To Quit The Rhyme” Feat. Anthony David is featured on their site today.
Last night Oct 6th kicked off the 7th annual A3C Festival. They called on the Beast Señor Kaos and 4-Ize to come set things off right. We rocked as apart of the Hip Hop DX showcase on the Creative Loafing stage along with artists: Joe Scudda, Homeboy Sandman, Kosha Dillz, Bronze Nazareth, Gods Illa, Freeway, and Random Axe (Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, & Black Milk).
Before I performed I hit the Kevin Nottingham stage and caught Lyric Jones, Bodega Brovas, Torae, J-Live, Boog Brown, El Da Sensei, and One Be Lo, set things off right. I missed Big Pooh (Little Brother) but heard he KILLED it. I must say Day 1 of the A3C Festival was pretty CRAZY! The fans came out to support, the artist brought their A game, and the sound was Amazing on all stages.
As I get ready for day two, wanted to leave y’all with this. Me, 4-Ize, and Anthony David performing “Hard To Quit The Rhyme” live.
What’s going on everybody. My apologies for the lack of updates around here. The Kaos Effect’s own Inori recently blessed us with his presence from out of the country. In true southern hospitality I had to show the homie around the city. The weekend is over and I’m just getting a chance to really sit down.
So if you follow me on twitter or facebook you’ve probably already seen the announcement for this years A3C Festival. The 7th annual A3C Hip Hop Festival will be taking place this weekend (Oct 6-8) in Atlanta, GA. I will be performing on Thursday night on the Hip Hop DX stage along with emcee 4-Ize and DJ Floyd The Locsmif for a special ULTRA BEAST set.
Señor Kaos and 4-Ize As Ultra Beast hits the stage at 10pm on Thursday night on the Hip Hop DX Stage. Other performances include Random Axe (Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Black Milk), Freeway, Homeboy Sandman, Joe Scudda, Gods Illa and more.
I’ll be performing at 4-Ize’s Virgo Birthday Extravaganza tomorrow night at 529 in East Atlanta Village. Also you got Laws, Eddie Meeks, and Slimm Calhoun performing as well. You might NOT want to miss this one.
Have you even partied with a Virgo? If not you need to be in the spot tomorrow. Check the flyer below for all the info.

On Thursday July 21st there was a special screening of the A Tribe Called Quest Documentary – Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest. Before the film started Phife Dawg called in via DJ Rasta Root to thank everyone for coming out.
ATL Emcees: 4-Ize, Señor Kaos, Headkrack, and Lyric Jones warmed up the crowd by hosting a live cypher in the theatre. Unfortunately the camera didn’t start recording until 4-Ize was almost finished, and didn’t get any footage of Lyric Jones who ripped it…. Guess you just had to be there.
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.
