“Hey, didn’t K. Sparks have a record about Magic featured back in August?” Indeed he did, and received rave Booth reviews for his trouble. Far from being a retread, however, newly-leaked cut Black Magic is proof the Queens native’s got no shortage of new tricks up his sleeve. This spellbinding banger finds D. Roof serving up a brassy jazz instrumental (sampled, I’ma guess, from some version of Ella Fitzgerald’s That Old Black Magic) as the Queens native spits verses characteristically jam-packed with wordplay and allusions. The real surprise, though, is who the headliner pulls out of his hat on the guest tip – Ahmad, the West Coast vet who recently made his comeback with The Death of Me, takes center stage on the front, showing off his downright magical knack for transitioning between gruff flows and silky-smooth sung vocals. The final chapter in Sparks’ acclaimed Trilogy has yet to receive a release date, but in the meantime fans can still stream and download the first (The Collaborations) and second (The Demonstration) from our very own mixtape page.
