Shade 45 DJ Clinton Sparks always seems to have his name in the spotlight, whether it be his beats, the 838,439,489 (actual number) of mixtapes he’s done, or his frequent appearances on your television. Now, with the help of Jermaine Dupri and DJ Class, Clinton Sparks drops his new track Favorite DJ, off his currently unscheduled new album The Brighter Side of Dark. Produced by Sparks himself, astute listeners may recognize the Baltimore club music rhythm that made DJ Class a household name with his single I’m the Ish. Vocally, Class’ auto-tuned verse sounds pretty much like your standard DJ Class verse, followed closely by JD, who gives us a 16 bar effort that’s not spectacular, but is enough to keep the flow going. Throw in some repetitive hooks and your standard “Simon Says” from the DJ, and I’m not sure Sparks will succeed in his mission to have Favorite DJ played in clubs and house parties everywhere. But what do the DJs in the DJBooth think? Are you ready to claim this track as your new anthem, or has it fallen short…like JD?
