K. Sparks - Blind Man
With 10 Minutes, K. Sparks put the cherry on top of a consistently dope 52-week series destined to be remembered as a towering monument to underground ambition. It was undeniably cause for celebration, but it was also a bittersweet moment; now that the Manic Mondays era is over, we’ll have to start our week without a new K. Sparks track, right? Not so fast—this Sunday evening/Monday, we’re proud to bring our readers the first official leak off Super Senior, a Kevin Nottingham/2DopeBoyz/DJBooth.net-cosponsored concept mixtape revolving around the artist’s experiences on the “underground hip-hop campus.” Blind Man finds the Double Up rapper detailing what sets him apart from his above and below-the-radar peers over a laid-back, bossa nova-tinged beat by frequent MM collaborator Kurser. Sparks may not “sing like Drake” or “dress like Wayne” but, as an artist who “[puts his] heart into every verse,” he’ll always have a home on our frontpage. Keep it locked to the Booth for further release info on Super Seniors, as well as—of course—plenty of fresh new tunes.
