K. Sparks - Visual Sound

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: K. Sparks
Producer:
T-Mos
Album:
Manic Mondays (#12)

When we featured K. Sparks’ eleventh Manic Mondays installment, Young Malcolm, last week, some listeners predicted that the emcee would be hard-pressed to top the record.  This week, Sparks has done just that with a story of what he calls Visual Sound.  Linking two separate stories (one of a woman tormented by sexual abuse, and the other of a man whose all-too-frequent long evenings result in the contraction of HIV), Sparks highlights the common result; the constant question of “Why me?”  Over a low-toned, classic-sampled beat by T-Mos, Visual Sound proves Sparks’ true depth as an artist, and his message will undoubtedly make listeners think real hard.
