More About Señor KaosContent, Delivery, and Showmanship are the three core values for Atlanta emcee Señor Kaos, an emerging lyricist whos unique approach to hip hop has sent him around the Globe. As an Emcee, Marketer, and Blogger, this artist’s persona and work ethic makes it hard to disagree with his self-proclaimed title as “Cultural Influencer.”
Señor Kaos emerges from a dissolving Hip Hop world where who you know, means more than what you do, representing what Hip Hop was and what it should be today.
With Hip Hop culture changing across the board and becoming over - saturated with the same stories of poverty, violence, and ignorance, the opportunity for a new voice to be heard is evident. “What you are all witnessing is the metamorphosis from a young hopeful to the leader of the new school. Señor Kaos is a true undergound monarch.” - Performer Magazine
Kaos got his start in the music business at just 15 years old where he would sneak into local nightclub’s, and enter MC battles, open mics, etc. At 20 years old Kaos was able to finance, secure distribution and release his own record independently. “I worked a telemarketing job to finance my first project. After securing distribution for it’s release, it went on to sell 2,000 copies with no major radio play, no video, and no press. “
By the age of 22 with clever content and a great stage show, Kaos’ music has allowed him to see crowds all over, from the U.S., Australia, and Japan.
Over the years Señor Kaos has shared the stage with artists and DJ’s such as:
MF DOOM, Jazzy Jeff, Big Daddy Kane, Pharoahe Monch, Slum Village, Clipse, Little Brother, Masta Ace, Wordsworth, Punchline, Maskpyke, Maseo(De La Soul), Pete Rock, Biz Markie, Raekwon and Ghostface (Wu-Tang), Ali Shaheed Muhammed(ATCQ), Termanology, Prince Paul, Tony Touch, Dj Premier, Questlove, Mad Skillz, Akrobatik, Jeru The Damaja, Del The Funky Homosapien and many others.
In 2003 as Kaos became more frustrated with the stagnant state of the music industry, his passion for promotion and coordinating led him to create Vintage Imperial Marketing and Promotion a lifestyle marketing company that specializes in Branding, Consulting, Sampling, and Guerilla Marketing.
At 25 years of age this young self -made businessman shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
“I have a passion for being around good music and good people, and I’m lucky enough to make a living being around both.”
Señor Kaos’ advice to other aspiring artist: “You have to define what you own definition of success is. For some artist selling a million records defines success, for others touring the world is success. You have to figure out what works for you. My goal as an emcee is to share my perspective of life through musical poetry that will appeal to all open minds. Making a living doing what I Love, that’s success to me.”
