K. Sparks - Magic
If a sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from Magic (as was famously stated by science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke), then K. Sparks must be the hip-hop equivalent of Gandalf the Grey. That is, if you consider rocking the mic a form of technology… which I guess it isn’t. Never mind – point is, the Queens native (and freestyle series alum) is a force to be reckoned with, and on this latest mixtape leak he proves it yet again. Over a sliced-n-diced soul sample from beatsmith Floyd Cheung, the rapper does what he does best, stringing together line after line of witty punchlines and free-associated braggadocio (“My offshore bank accounts got offshore bank accounts.”) This magically delicious track is the final leak off the Kevin Nottingham-sponsored second chapter of Sparks’ ongoing mixtape Trilogy. In the meantime, those who haven’t already should check out Chapter One, still available for free streaming and download right here in the Booth.
