K. Sparks’ Christian faith isn’t typically the overt topic of his rhymes, but if you do as the title of his new album says and Read Between the Lines, you’ll find that it’s one of the driving forces behind his lyrical outlook. On Dreamer, a freshly-released standout off the aforementioned project, that subtext is brought into the foreground. Backed by Sean Ross’ brass fanfare and driving percussion, the Queens repper and longtime reader fave tells the stories of two struggling individuals who found relief from their pain and hope for the future after cracking open the Good Book. Frequent collaborator Tina Quallo drives the message home on her passionate guest chorus. Fans can find this inspiring cut, previous releases Stimulus Package, Leaders and Wonder Years, and much more, check out Sparks’ latest Booth-hosted project, available now for free streaming and download.
