After spending 16 Manic Mondays with K. Sparks, DJBooth regulars are well aware that the South Jamaica, Queens emcee is one of the most gifted up-and-comers in underground hip hop.  Thus far, Sparks has brought us both on-point meditations on serious topics (see Rain, Visual Sound) and punchline/pop-culture reference-packed cuts designed to showcase his peerless lyrical game (see Spittaz and Spittaz II).  Installment number 17, entitled G.A.M.E., fits neatly in the latter category; in the artist’s own words, “I wrote this song from the perspective of just spittin’ dope lyrics… sometimes Kurser sends me beats that are off the chain and I just wanna feel free to say whatever…” Sparks’ assessment of Kurser’s production is right on; the beat blends strings, organ, and tuneful whistling to build the perfect melodic backdrop for the emcee’s verses.  Name-dropping everyone from Spiderman to Letterman, K. Sparks kills another one.  By now, we all know he can keep it up – the only question is, what new brand of freshness will number 18 bring to the table?
