King Mez stormed my system with the release of My Everlasting Zeal back in the spring.  Since, he has expedited his way atop my all star list of up-and-comers, listening to the mixtape over and over and enjoying it more and more each time through.  “Monte Carlo” is a clear favorite off the project, laced with designer rhymes and delivered with an addictive drum kick from producer Commissioner Gordon and raw scratches from DJ Flash.  This North Carolina emcee is nothing short of extraordinary and if you haven’t yet grabbed the free DL of My Everlasting Zeal, I suggest doing so now.

Hip-Hop | King Mez – The Allure ft. Drey Skonie (Prod. By J. Cole)

Posted by 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).

Pumped Up Kicks is a bulletproof starting block especially for an artist like Jacob Es who spits quick MGK-like flows. This will undoubtedly be on deck throughout the Spring. As a bonus I’ve included some other hip-hop submissions that caught my ear (Overnight Celebrity takes me way back).
