Last week, we helped K. Sparks addicts stave off post-Manic Mondays withdrawal by featuring Blind Man, a track off the reader favorite’s forthcoming, Kevin Nottingham/2DopeBoyz/DJBooth.net-cosponsored mixtape, Super Seniors. Feel free to breathe another sigh of relief—today, our favorite Queens native’s Back in the Building (and in the Booth) to send fans off to work/school with a certified banger. On official leak #2, Sparks joins forces with frequent collaborator Julius Francis to make sure everyone in the house has their hands in the air. As beatsmith Claps gets heads bobbing with a mid-tempo mix of marching-band brass, piano, and—of course—plenty of handclaps, Sparks delivers two verses packed with his trademark heavily-alliterated braggadocio, notably name-dropping veteran duo Camp Lo. Tied together with Francis’ silken hook and backing vocals, ItB is another tantalizing glimpse of what’s in store on Super Seniors. Keep it locked to our frontpage—though the project has yet to receive a solid release date, Sparks promises that “... more leaks [are] on the way shortly.”
