Chapel Hill is the spot to be at tonight….

Whoa. After the last two days of UNC basketball, I think it’s about time everybody exhales(after inhaling, of course), and enjoys life for a little bit. & where else better to do that then in the heart of Tar Heel country, itself. Chapel Hill is the move tonight if you are looking for a good hip hop event. Some of the state’s finest emcees will be in the building to put on a show that will leave you gasping for air. King Mez, fresh off of his first MTV appearance and the release of The King’s Khrysis, will be holding it down. 9th Wonder, and Kooley High prized pupil, Rapsody will be doing her usual murderous microphone routine, Lazurus, Poe Mack, IllPo, and others will also be out repping for NC. Lastly, I will be there doing my usual 2 step on stage. So if you want to get out and celebrate tonight, do it in a smart manner….WITH US! Come tru. Jack Sprat. Show starts at 10p…

King Mez – Champions (Free Download)

Carolina’s prodigal son is at it again, & this time he has teamed up with some heavy hitters for his “re-introduction” into the scene. Here goes some words about it:

This song marks the beginning of King Mez’s new project, of which the name is to be released at a later date. The project is to be sponsored by Stussy, Dj Booth, Herfection, Fisdj.foto, Eleven Heavens, and Workshop. This work of art is Mez’s way of reintroducing himself to the hip hop scene after a slight hiatus. After Getting approval from Apple Juice Kid and Ski Beatz Champions” is ready for the public ear. The project that this song spearhead’s will be released February the 27th, the same day as King Mez’s first cable television Appearance, His MTV2 Sucker Freestyle.

If you don’t download this joint, you are psychotic. & mark your calendar, cuz I will be performing with Mez, Rapsody, and others on Poe Mack’s Shoestring Budget Tour in Chapel Hill next month. In the meantime, make you download the gem for FREE here…

King Mez at Ruckus Pizza Tonight

To all my 919 heads out there, make sure you hit up Ruckus Pizza in Mission Valley for another dope hip hop event tonight. King Mez & J Capri hit the stage around 10pm tonight & I guarantee this show will be live as hell. If you have never been to Ruckus, just make sure you get their early cuz it’s a not a huge venue & this show is going to fill up fast. As always, support NC Hip Hop…

Sean Boog – Light Beers Ahead of You (Free Mixtape)

Shoutout to the homie Sean Boog for the release of his new mixtape, Light Beers Ahead of You. If you know Boog, then the title to the mixtape is perfect. That cat loves to drink. Hahaha. But for real, Boog has been a staple in the NC Hip Hop community for years, and it’s good to see him get a lot of praise for his newest body of work. A few years back, Boog made a brief appearance on my DVD, Empty Boxes. So make sure you download this joint for FREE. Guest appearances include King Mez, Halo, Thee Tom Hardy, Act Proof, Rapsody & more. Production by 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Eric G, Amp, E. Jones & more. Big ups to Nerv Reck for the dope artwork. You can get it here

K.O. Kid, King Mez & more at the Cats Cradle this Saturday

Apparently Chapel Hill is the spot to be at on Saturday night. The Cats Cradle is doing a good thing by giving a few of the top local acts the time to shine as headliners at their own show. I was put on to K.O Kid cuz he has ties to the Greenville scene, and I have done a few flyers for shows he has done. King Mez is a beast, that is certified. I recently found a live recording of an event I did with Blount Harvey, and we invited Mez onstage for a freestyle session. Looking back now, Mez must’ve been 15 or 16 years old at that show, and he killed it! Apple Juice Kid is a legend in NC Hip Hop. If you are unfamiliar with his movement, it’s time to change that. I had the honor of doing an event with FreeBass 808 in Wilmington a few years back. They are crazy live.

So I guess every Hip Hop head from the 919 will be in Chapel Hill on Saturday. See yall there…

Tilted Nations Coat Drive Tonight!

Shoutout to Tilted Nations & AvantGarde for putting on this Coat Drive tonight at the Black Flower in Raleigh, NC. All you have to do is bring a new or old coat, or monetary donation, and you get to enjoy a night of great hip hop. Make sure you check out Carlitta Durand, J Capri, King Mez, S. Gold, The Apple Juice Kid and more tonight from 9p-2a. But most importantly, help out the less fortunate and support a good cause…

8th Annual L.E.G.A.C.Y. Bday Bash (TONIGHT!)

Make sure you hit up The L.E.G.A.C.Y. Bday pt.8, tonight, Friday December 10th at 10pm.  Admission is  $8 & DJ Gonzo is on the wheels. It’s hosted by Spoken Word legend Dasan Ahanu with insane performances by: Lazarus, Son up Sun Down, Sleep Control, Pete Menasian, King Mez, Keisha Shontelle, and L.E.G.A.C.Y.

If you have never been to one of these parties, get ready for one of the biggest events of the year. I have been to the last few, and had the honor of performing at it last year. If you are in the 919, this is the spot to be at tonight…
