One week after Toronto buzzmaker Jazz Cartier welcomed us to the "Hell Recital," #BlessTheBooth continues with a chilling "Testimony" from Harlem emcee KING Z3US.

Aligned with producer !llmind's Roseville Music Group and coming up under the wing of A$AP Ferg, Z3US has managed to build a steady local buzz partly off the strength of his booming "21 Pounds" single. Laced with menacing production from !llmind, the upstart KING shows off his commanding voice and gritty lyricism by ripping through nearly three straight minutes of booth-blessing.

For more from KING Z3US, make sure to check out "21 Pounds" (which recently surpassed one million YouTube views) before checking out his debut EP, scheduled to drop later this month on March 31. Beyond that, keep it locked (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio and visual dopeness from Tommy Swisher, Tsu Surf and more.

We hope you feel blessed, because following entries from Casey Veggies, LocksmithChaz French, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the 22nd installment in our Bless The Booth series, presented by TuneCore. For those not up to date, Bless The Booth has taken over for our now completed DJBooth Freestyle Series, which ran on and off for the past six years and included contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T. and more. 

From the DJBooth headquarters at #AudiomackStudios, located in the heart of SoHo, NYC, to your laptop or phone (more likely), Bless The Booth brings you exclusive bars from your favorite emcees. Characterized by its off the cuff nature, our Bless The Booth series is the result of artists coming through our office to kick back and have a drink or two while enjoying the comforts of our newly remodeled digs. After cycling through a wide range of beats and achieving the optimal vibe, it's time to head into the booth and hit record.
