Over the course of the Booth favorite’s Manic Mondays series, countless readers have made comments to to effect of, “K Sparks could take any rapper in the game,” but that assertion has never truly been put to the test—until now. On entry #46, Sparks finds himself suffering from a bit of an Identity Crisis putting his skills as an impressionist to test by adopting the styles of eight of the biggest names in the biz. Jumping from one rapper to the next over Kurser‘s upbeat mix of electric guitar and arpeggiated synths, K Sparks focuses more on flow than pitch-perfect, Roll Call-style vocal imitation, but quite a few of his impressions are on the money regardless—his Asher Roth, in particular, is hilariously dead on, and his Kanye is nearly as head-turning. The rapper fares a little worse when he tries to step into Slim Shady‘s shoes, but his Lose Yourself-referencing bars will still put smiles on fans’ faces (and his impression inspired me to track down Dave Chappelle’s classic “Spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti,” parody, which is still as hysterical as ever). In any case, there are more hits than misses here—I’ll leave it to you, the readers, to judge the rest.
