I first heard SeÃ±or Kaos while working on the PH mixtape MY ERA: No Skinny Jeans Allowed, at DJ HAZE’s studio in Staten Island. I was helping PH mix and recording my verse for Runnin‘ (remake of the Pharcyde song). One track on the mixtape featured a SeÃ±or Kaos (“Flava In Your Ear” remake, also ft. Punchline & 4-Ize). I liked his flow and asked PH about him. “Oh yeah, that’s my boy. He’s nice.” Well, of course (duh) why wouldn’t he be? He’s on your mixtape. Cool.
So, fast forward to now, I came across this on fam Sucio Smash’s site, HighWaterIsMusic. The video is called “No More“. The intro is a take on the Dos Equis beer commercials with “the most interesting man in the world”, which are hilarious. It’s dated June 16th, but things go up on blogs so fast these days, within a few hours they are pushed off the page and hell, if I missed it, maybe so did you. Dope song, entertaining video, funny concept, cool dude, with flow.Â Or to quote The Smoking Section,Â â€œLearn the name. Remember the face. This man deserves respect.â€

Numark has just released their smallest DJ controller yet. Crhis Roman demonstrates the DJ2GO atÂ NAMM 2011 for ScratchWorx TV. (see below)
While the DJ2GO looks limitted to 2 devices and doesn’t sport decent sized scratch platters, but rather small dials, it has the advantage of being able to go where larger units cannot. Throw it in your laptop case, a shoulder bag or napsack and you’re good to go.
Questions I have:
Does it work with other DJ scratch software like Traktor and Serato, or does it only work with the Virtual DJ LE (lite) that it comes with? *answer below video
Can you scratch at all using the jog wheels?
Can you attach it to an iPad, iPod and iPhone, like the iDJ Live I posted about last week?
If the answer to these three questions are “no”, then I give this a thumbs down as a main unit. If it works with all types of software, then for $59.00, you might wanna pick this up, as a back-up for when your turntables, CDJ’s, or more powerful controller fails in the middle of a gig (like what happened to my boy yesterday – someone spilled their drink into his MixTrackPro during the party – yikes!).
Caught up with BAD SEED the other day. We talked about his current album “Intelligently Ignant” (click here for full album review) as well as his future plans and the next album he has already started recording. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
If you have any questions for Seed, post em. He checks this site and I’m pretty sure he will Â answer you.
The BAD SEED -Â INTELLIGENTLY IGNANT – production by Kleph Dollaz, VES, Golden Eye, Will Tell and DP , as well as features from Talib Kweli, MIMS, Nature, Kool G Rap, PH (aka Pumpkinhead)and Touch
Bad Seed sets it off right with Brown Water. He comes out the gate immediately telling his story, honest, brutal, emotional, nothing glorified. Right away we find out what he means by “6th Man Entertainment”. He addresses his former record deal with Warner Brothers, his underground status, fair weather friends and burnt bridges. This is refreshing, because for once an MCee is not bragging on how dope his rhymes are, how fly his girls are, how much money and jewelry he has and how he buss his guns all day. Instead, Seed is doing what you supposed to do in Hip Hop – be honest, be passionate and most importantly – tell your story.
