New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Born in the favelas of Brazil - the suburban, tightly packed areas in which some of the poorest members of society live - Jailson N. Rodrigues aka Kaos MC had to make a choice: to follow his passion for music or live the street life. He chose music. The conditions of some parts of the favelas may be almost slum-like but it has never dented the spirit of the people living there.
Whilst his contemporaries may rap about girls, bling and violence, Kaos MC is giving back to the people who have supported him through his unlikely rise from the depths of poverty to the recording studio and working with legendary musicians.

Having founded the Lokos da Favela, a family movement that focuses on positivity in the favela, bringing the community together with rap music, Kaos has attracted the attention of Generation Hip Hop who have endorsed his work. Chaired by Ndaba Mandela (grandson of Nelson Mandela), they have been quick to highlight the work Kaos MC have done for his underprivileged compatriots.

His single 'What's Wrong' sees him teaming up with the legendary Tito Jackson; international recording artist and YouTube sensation Alex Boyé, and Brazilian rapper, Bull Dogg, to bring the hottest sounds coming out of his home country into the wider world.

Choosing to leave behind a life that revolved around selling drugs, he began his artistic career in 2005 with the Vid'ativa group, after which he launched his solo career. Starting a partnership with Doc B Productions in 2015, he works with international producer Peter Doc B who has elevated Kaos to new heights. Considered something of a folk hero, producer Doc B is one of the few people from outside the country to live in the favelas where he made the choice to live amongst the locals and grow the rap scene in Brazil. Introducing Kaos to international artists, this has led to their new album titled "O Final Coence Bem", from which 'What's Wrong' is taken.
