In classical rhetoric, the Latin word “Exordium” (literally “beginning”) refers to the introductory part of an oration, in which the speaker lays the foundation for the argument to come. While King Mez’ latest feature isn’t attached to any larger body of work, the promo single does offer some helpful preliminary info for listeners just getting into the North Carolina rhymesayer’s oeuvre. Over Rico Beats’ moody synth boardwork, Mez spits about his humble beginnings, his propensity for killing the competition and his determination to conquer the game. In the spoken-word outro, he tackles some FAQs on the subject of his stage name. Now that you’ve heard the basics, are you anxious to learn more? Exordium is just a loosie but, while you wait for more fresh material and the release of new tape Long Live the King II, you can always have a scroll through King Mez’ extensive library of past Booth-featured cuts and projects.
