Manic Monday Series (#6)

It’s that time again, Booth Crew!  What time, you may ask?  Well, Monday’s the time for yet another installment of K. Sparks’ “Manic Mondays” series. After exploring his darker side with last week’s Never, the Jamaica, Queens native breaks from the road less traveled to tackle one of ‘08’s most popular hip hop topics, Hip-Hop President. Sparks employs Obama as a symbol of change (sampling several of his speeches along the way); under his hip-hop presidency, legends such as KRS-One, Big Daddy Kane, and Marly Marl would get their proper respect.  One promise that should attract most of the Booth to Sparks’ campaign is that, if elected, the emcee would deem the use of autotune a punishable offense.  If you’re still not hooked by K. Sparks’ message, tune in again next week for his next installment; same Manic time, same Manic website.
