King Mez – The Allure ft. Drey Skonie (Prod. By J. Cole)
Posted by Grubeats on April 11, 2012
Sifting through today’s submissions, I caught eye of this track from King Mez, “The Allure”, highlighted by the fact it was produced by J. Cole. Sure the name associated drew my initial attention, but the beat alone won’t sell itself, even if it is from a Grammy nominated Rapper/Producer. With that being said, I was thoroughly impressed by King Mez’s delivery. A breath of Fresh
air Heir (cue the hashtag to support the movement #FreshHeir). Evidently an intelligent artist, Mez provides thought provoking rhymes leaving me wanting more. An alluring introductory.
Mez’s association with Cole is still uncertain at this point, but looking ahead to see additional production off his upcoming album, My Everlasting Zeal, will feature that of Commissioner Gordon, Soundtrakk (Lupe Fiasco’s “Kick Push” and “Superstar”), Omen (Dreamville), 1120, and Prolyfic, it appears Mez has aced the art of networking. In addition, he appears to be from Raleigh, NC, a mere hour and five minute drive from Jermaine’s hometown of Fayetteville (yes, I Googled it).
*BONUS* Hit the break to see J. Cole’s newest video for “The Sideline Story” off his Grammy nominated, gold debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story. The video is a chronological look into Cole’s worldwide ‘Cole World’ tour.
