As you must already know, June is a huge month for new album releases. J.

With crisp cuts like HTNC (Humble’s The New Cocky) it’s no wonder he is so eager to share the project with his fans earlier than expected. Backed by Kurser’s minimalist, briskly paced beat, Sparks speeds things up, educating listeners on the differences between him and your average emcee. His guest, Angelous, impresses too, displaying a higher pitched flow and a very interesting cadence.
