K. Sparks - Hard

Tags: K. Sparks
Producer:

Album:
Manic Mondays (#35)

34 weeks into his Manic Mondays series, K. Sparks is well on his way to achieving his stated goal of spitting about “every possible topic;” lately though, it seems like he’s also angling to put his lyrically-driven stamp on every hip-hop subgenre under the sun—with last week’s Bright Lights, he proved it possible to craft a club banger you can think and drink to, and on installment number 35, he gives all would-be hip-rockers a similar wakeup call, demonstrating that guitar-heavy beats and Hard-hitting lyricism are two great tastes that taste great together.  Skrazey backs the emcee’s punchline-driven braggadocio with the brand of bluesy riff-rock that set the standard for swagger well before the word “swagger” became a hip-hop cliché, and the combination could hardly feel more natural.  Wondering what Sparks has in store for next week?  Well, stop wondering and start brainstorming, because he’s letting you decide.  Send your suggestions to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address); the most creative concept will become Manic Monday #36, and the record will come complete with a shout-out to the winning entrant.
