K. Sparks - 5 on the Black Hand Side

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Kurser
Album:

K. Sparks isn’t just old-school in his focus on lyricism and his choice of instrumentals; his affinity for the retro also extends to his taste in handshakes. On a new single off his next independent full-length, the South Jamaica repper invites us to give him 5 on the Black Hand Side. You’ll want to give him dap of one variety or another after listening to this record, as it’s every bit as dope as we’ve come to expect from the Booth fave. Kurser‘s beat, a quirky, yet gritty mix of synths, vocal samples and boom-bap percussion, sets the stage for verses loaded with witty braggadocio and triple-time trash-talk. K. Sparks’s Vintage Art LP is scheduled to drop for digital sale on Sunday, July 27, at which point the set will be available for full, free streaming in The DJBooth.
