Soft, gentle, commodious, fluid, peaceful, soothing, placid, serene… Sorry, just browsing my thesaurus, since I figured I’d need a few synonyms for “smooth” in order to describe K. Sparks’ latest offering without sounding like a broken record. Velvet Thoughts (Sutphin), leak numero cuatro off the final entry in his ongoing mixtape Trilogy finds the freestyle series alum and longstanding reader favorite recounting a blossoming romance with a chick who shares a name with Jamaica, Queens’ second busiest throughfare. In addition to Skrazey‘s
smooth euphonious saxophone samples and Sparks’ smooth unblemished game-spitting, this smooth languid joint boasts the smooth mellifluous vocal stylings of Parisian chanteuse Laëtitia Dana, who contributes a(n) smooth easygoing guest verse as well as smooth
ear-pleasing backing vocals throughout. Phew – that was a lot of synonyms. The Trilogy (Vol. 3) still lacks a solid release date, but Sparks fans who have yet to cop chapters one and two can stream/download them here and here, courtesy of DJBooth.net.
