BIOGRAPHY

Ambitiously battling to emerge as a respected lyricist and producer from Raleigh, North Carolina, 25 year old King Mez has managed to differentiate himself with a righteous delivery unsullied with superficial content too familiar these days in popular music. Instead, the young emcee brings to the table a flow far more personal, executed with a demeanor that demonstrates he deserves every ounce of respect he’s ever received.  From collaborating with hip-hop heavy hitters like Dr.Dre, J.Cole, Ski Beatz, Rico Beats, Omen, Soundtrakk, to his features with XXL, SiriusXM, MTV, Spin Magazine, Life + Times, NBC,  the New York Times, and more... King Mez has built a steady and supportive network around him while honing his skills and staying true to his unique sound. With three incredibly solid mixtape releases under his belt (The King’s Khrysis 2011, My Everlasting Zeal 2012), and his most recent project titled “Long Live The King II”, and now being a huge contributor (as both an artist and writer) to Dr.Dre's final project, "Compton", Mez is steadily marching the path paved by his NC forefathers, with no signs of stopping where the sidewalk ends.

RECENT QUOTES

The new artists I got like King Mez and Justus, these two guys actually came in and just grinded with me throughout the entire project. As a matter of fact, most of the lyrics are written by us three. We would just go into the studio, put up the track and for some reason, the stars aligned and we killed it, man.
— Dr.Dre speaking on Compton Album - RollingStone.com
King Mez’s shattering opening lyric on “Talk About It”, “I don’t give one f***,” immediately changes the direction established in the intro. No more scholarly narratives about Compton: King Mez is on a rampage, dissing counterfeit rappers for ruining the game.
— Billy Johnson Jr., Senior Editor at Yahoo Music
The 25-year-old emcee and producer from Raleigh wrote most of the music on Compton in collaboration with Dre. Like Kendrick, he has three features on the album. In “Satisfiction”, he puts hype beasts on notice with his cool confidence, rapping.
— Lauretta Charlton of Vulture.com
Dre has always worked with a panoply of guests, some of whom would never be heard from again, and others who would define their era; rappers like King Mez feel like the 2015 Hittman, where deferential lyrical classicists have replaced pugnacious gangsters as the malleable roleplayers of the era.
