With formidable mic skills, an impressive pen game and a burning passion for hip-hop, freestyle series alum King Mez is Everything heads could ask for in an emcee. Don’t take it from me, though. On his latest promo single, making its world premiere here in the Booth, the Lazaretto Crew member tells us exactly why he considers himself a paragon of freshness – and why his competitors may as well lay down the mic: “Try as you may, you can never be as dope as me.” The Sinopsis keeps things smooth on the production tip, flipping The Whispers’ I’m Gonna Make You My Wife into a soulful backdrop for the North Carolina representative’s allusive trash-talk: “You ain’t no emcee, maybe you should try new pens, because I know we ain’t kin/Ken – you ain’t Ryu’s friend.” Fellow Tar Heel State native Sean Boog lends a hand on the guest tip, celebrating his triumphs over adversity (and his knack for stealing rivals’ girlfriends) on the joint’s middle portion. Agree with King Mez’ self-assessment? If so, keep it locked – while this cut isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
