The Break Presents: King Mez

Breakout: “Somthing’s Missing”

Also Check: “Nightmare”


And: “From the South” featuring Thee Tom Hardy and Sean Boog’: Southside Raleigh

Name: King Mez (Sir Mezington Rex formally)

Age: 21

Reppin’: Southside Raleigh, NC

I started rapping: When I was nine

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Nas, Andre 3000, Lupe Fiasco

My standout records and/or moments have been: Every moment I get on God’s green is standout to me. But I’ve had some cool things happen. Sirius Satellite radio calling my 6 song EP possibly mixtape of the year. Hot 97 to call me the illest from NC since Cole. Walking in Foot Locker seeing my vid on all the TV’s. Turning on MTV seeing myself rhyming. I’m grateful. I’m at .3% of what I’m going to accomplish in this game though. Believe me.

I’m gonna change the game by: Doing me. Actually rapping, etc.

I’d Like to Work With: DOOM, Nas, Andre 3000, Lupe Fiasco

My goal in hip-hop is: To never alienate the listener. Gotta show love to everybody listening. I feel as though you do the fans a disservice by telling them they need things they can’t afford or attain. I stunt from time to time. But I bleed like everybody else. And I let that be know in my music.

I’m gonna be the next: Nothing comparable. King is my name though.

    To see King Mez grow and gain the attention of, not only the hip-hop community, but music lovers in general is so surreal. I am beyond proud of this guy right here…if anybody deserves it, it’s him.
