Hip-hop loves a rags-to-riches story, so it’s no surprise that Slumdog Millionaire‘s become a rap touchstone, scoring countless name-drops and even inspiring a cut by the one and only Snoop Dogg. The latest artist to hit the Booth with a track referencing the Oscar-winning film is none other than reader favorite K. Sparks, whose latest feature (the sixth leak off his forthcoming, Booth-cosponsored mixtape) finds the Queens emcee and two frequent co-stars counting their Slum Dog Millions over Middle Eastern-informed synth boardwork by Double Up beatsmith Kurser. Hookman Julius Francis and guest emcee Dave Barz turn in performances worthy of a Best Supporting Actor nod, but it’s the headliner’s bars, packed with inventive, aggressively-delivered boasts, that will attract the lion’s share of Booth attention – especially since Sparks shouts out our own DJ Z in verse three (I was listening for someone to use the word “rich” so I could willfully misinterpret it as a reference to yours truly, but no dice). Super Senior is set to drop late this month. In the meantime, keep it locked to our front page for all the latest leaks!
