With past releases like My Everlasting Zeal and The King's Khrysis, King Mez has proven himself as one of the foremost emerging artists in North Carolina underground hip-hop.
Now, the unsigned buzzmaker has returned with a digital full-length sure to prolong his reign over the First in Flight State scene. Long Live the King consists of 12 original jams, none of which have previously been featured on our pages. "Morris" will be released as the project's first single.
Kaisle Grai, Sonny Base, Sonya Teclai and Tanya Reshay make guest appearances throughout the set, which packs production from Commissioner Gordon, Deputy, !llmind and Ishi, as well as boardwork by the artist himself.
