K. Sparks - I Know

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: K. Sparks
Producer:
Kurser
Album:
Manic Mondays (Week 45)

If the music industry were, say, a video arcade full of the ‘80s classics, K. Sparks’ initials would likely top the high score list of every machine in the house.  Simply put, he’s got the skills.  In reality, unfortunately, it’s more like a ring toss at your local carnival midway: flashy and inviting, possibly rigged, and run by individuals one may or may not be able to trust (No offense to any label execs or carnies reading). Of course, Sparks is driven to elevate his game in spite of the haters and the industry’s non-meritocratic nature, and I Know finds him once again annihilating the competition with acrobatic ease.  Like many of his recent features, Manic Monday #45 spotlights the rapper’s expanding array of head-spinning flows, and Kurser‘s uptempo mix of clipped percussion and videogamey synths perfectly accents his unpredictable rhymes.  Packed with tightly-wound punchline lyricism, this track showcases restless creativity from both contributors, and, topped off with a few memorable vocal effects, proves one of the catchier MM entries in recent memory.  Tune in every Sunday evening/Monday for the latest tracks in Sparks’ ongoing series, and watch for his and AngelousQueens vs. Brooklyn mixtape to hit our blog in the next two weeks.
