Ken Carson Evokes Chaos In Brooklyn: Spotify Hosts The "A Great Chaos" Album Release Party - OUT NOW

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Ken Carson has returned with his latest album, A Great Chaos, available today, October 13th, across all streaming platforms. The highly-anticipated album includes 18 tracks with only two features from artists Lil Uzi Vert and Destroy Lonely. The 45-minute mixtape is the fourth release from Ken Carson and already stands at #5 on Apple Music’s Top Charts today.


Kenyatta Frazier, known professionally by his stage persona Ken Carson, is an American singer, rapper, and record producer signed under renowned artist Playboi Carti's record label, Opium. Beginning in 2015, Carson initially signed with 808 Mafia and began working with record producer TM88 to eventually release his first tracks on Soundcloud in 2017. Carson’s first releases gained widespread recognition in the underground rap scene relatively quickly. It wasn’t long after his start in the scene that Carson was discovered by fellow Atlanta rapper, Playboi Carti, in 2019. Soon after, Ken Carson received a record deal with Opium Records where he released two extended plays in 2020, Boy Barbie and Teen X. In 2021, Carson released his debut album entitled Project X, and a year later released his second studio album X under Opium. Carson’s second studio album really was the jump start to his career, scoring him a spot on Billboard’s Top 200 Charts and securing his place as a big-name artist in the trap scene. As of October 13th, 2023, Ken Carson has released his third studio album, A Great Chaos, and, within a few hours, has found a home on top charts for most album streams across platforms.


A Great Chaos is the third full-length project from rapper Ken Carson, released October 13th, 2023 through Opium and Interscope Records. The album is a continuation of Carson's previous projects X and Lost Files 4. The 18-song tracklist only contains two features from American rapper Lil Uzi Vert and labelmate Destroy Lonely. The project's production was handled by frequent Carson collaborators F1lthy, Lil 99, and TM88, among others, who have been working with Carson since the beginning of his career. The authenticity of Carson's music is maintained throughout this album as his unique stylistic approach evolves song after song. The album's lead single "I Need U" dropped to the public on February 14th as the first album teaser and single-handedly supported A Great Chaos. In early June, Carson announced the original release date for A Great Chaos alongside the official tracklist and a teaser for a new song, however, the original tracklist was partially abandoned and the teaser song was never actually released until eventually the album was postponed to October 13th for reasons out of Carson's control. Although this caused an upheaval from the die-hard Ken Carson fans impatiently awaiting the album, the anticipation for A Great Chaos only intensified, and the news had everyone talking about A Great Chaos and Ken Carson months before the release actually dropped to the public. This is all to say, A Great Chaos is easily one of the most anticipated albums of this year and fans cannot get enough of the 18-song tracklist release.
