Clinton Sparks Reveals His Top 5 Tracks of the Week
Since the early 2000s, Clinton Sparks has risen to prominence as a musical tastemaker through his work as a producer, songwriter, club/mixtape DJ and television/radio personality, notably pioneering the Get Familiar mixtape series and scoring the #1 worldwide syndicated radio program with Smashtime Radio. Now, the Boston heavyweight has hooked up with DJBooth.net to share his insights with the hip-hop nation in the form of a weekly Top Five Countdown of his current favorite records.
Rick Ross' massively reader-acclaimed album leak, "Free Masons," is first on Sparks' list this week, followed by Jared Evans' equally Booth-approved "In Love With You." Swedish recording artist Robyn's "Dancehall Queen" (not previously featured in the Booth) comes in third. Rounding out the lineup are two star-studded remixes, M.I.A./Nicki Minaj collab "Teqkilla (Remix)" and Katy Perry's Snoop-assisted "California Gurls (Armand Van Helden Remix)" (the latter of which was also not featured in the Booth).
