King Mez - Champions

The Re Runs

After a brief hiatus on the Booth (it’s been two months since Hoppin Over Fences), things are looking up for North Carolina native and Booth Freestyle vet King Mez. With a project set to release and an upcoming appearance on MTV2’s Sucker Freestyle, Mez will no doubt be an emcee to watch in 2011. Champions is his comeback single; an epic showcase of his furious wordplay and hungry swagger. Producers Ski Beatz and Apple Juice Kid’s dramatic, cymbal-crashing beat splashes in the background while Mez convinces us why he’s a force to be reckoned with: “Even if you ahead of me, at this moment you students.” He even compares himself to a modern day Rakim or Nas, just without the profanity. (It’s true, this song is squeaky clean). If nothing else, Champions will leave you with a clear impression of the kind of emcee Mez is—intelligent and (very) hungry, reminiscent of fellow Tar Heel J. Cole. If those two qualities don’t lead to success, I don’t know what does. King Mez’s forthcoming project The Re Runs drops on Feb. 27 right here at DJ Booth. Keep it locked.
