King Mez - Exclusive SXSW Interview
In mid-March, emerging artists and hip-hop heavyweights alike gathered in Austin, Texas for the 25th annual South by Southwest festival, which included an all-star showcase sponsored by DJBooth.net (Click here to read our exclusive, live-blogged SXSW coverage!). For the sixth in a series of interviews shot over the course of the week, DJBoothTV‘s own Jacques Morel chops it up with King Mez, the North Carolina emcee who recently hooked up with producer Khrysis for the Booth-sponsored The King’s Khrysis LP (downloadable here!)
In the exclusive video interview above, King Mez discusses the role DJBooth played in his early hype, what he’s got up next (including an MTV Sucker-Free freestyle!), and his college b-ball loyalties.
