Senor Kaos pulls Constellations collabo out the vault

Remember when Asher Roth was like an Atlanta rapper? True, he always claimed Morrisville, Pennsylvania and everything. But with his manager Scooter Braun living in Atlanta, Roth relocated here for awhile in 2008 to get things popping. His debut album Asleep in the Bread Aisle included collaborations with ATLiens Keri Hilson and Cee Lo. And when Atlanta party band Constellations dropped their Virgin Records debut Southern Gothic in 2010, Roth was a featured guest on the song "We're Here to Save the Day." But it turns out that another Atlanta-based rapper, Señor Kaos, almost got that guest spot. He even recorded a verse with Constellations. But alas it never saw the light of day, says Kaos, until now:

In 2010 I was invited into the studio to work on a verse for The Constellations single “We’re Here To Save The Day” from their debut album “Southern Gothic.” I was excited for the opportunity and had a great experience writing/recording the track.

However due to music industry politics Virgin Records decided they wanted Asher Roth on the record instead of me, and my version was scrapped and has never seen the light of day.

I’ve held on this song for over 2 years now, while it’s been collecting dust on a random flash drive. The song went on to become a success appearing on television and video games since its release. The time has come for me to liberate the music.

For comparison's sake, here's the original feat. Asher Roth.
