Son….I love it when things come full circle. Back in 2010, I had the pleasure to witness a man-child spit well-grown thoughts all over the mic at Ruckus Pizza in Raleigh, NC. He was King Mez then and he’s even more of an authority now, dropping a The DJBooth worthy new single, Monte Carlo. A Chevy-heavy piece whose scratch and rip sound pays homage to the style of Houston’s late DJ screw, Mez makes an organized mess of Commissioner Gordon‘s production in such a way that any listener would yell “Ay, run that back!” His erratic flow is steady, with country grammar all over the beat: “If you throwing hands/understand/you betta not hit that flo”—a representation of the young emcees background and method of maintaining in the south. Cuts by DJ Flash heighten Commish’s stacked sound of drums, making this joint download ready for the El Dorado. Oh yes, I’m from the Carolinas too…diamond-in-the-back style. Salute the King and check for Mez’s upcoming album, My Everlasting Zeal, a must download for the hip-hop faithful.
