A Day in the Life by K. Sparks produced by G.C., with features from Sean Price, Julius Francis, Cymarshall Law, Dave Barz, and Chris Young, has dropped and is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon.com, and other major outlets. To get a taste of the album, download the free sampler of A Day in the Life here.
A Day in the Life is a fitting title for this conceptual project, which was recorded in just one day’s time. Listeners are taken from the beginning to end of a typical day in Sparks’ life. The album is an exploration into all aspects of the artist’s identity, a reveal he faces in an intimate and emotionally supercharged way. Sparks provides the A Day in the Life tour using inventive wordplay, internal rhyming, battle raps, storytelling and eye-widening punch-lines. Equally integral to the project, producer G.C. has master-crafted a backdrop for Sparks that glows with rich instrumentation and a comforting jazziness, while still maintaining a raw, boom-bap vibe overall.
Standout tracks include “Keep Movin,” with its New York-drenched drum/bass/guitar trifecta, a smooth chorus from Julius Francis and monstrous verses from both Sparks and the infamous Sean P [download this track here]. “Watching Me” includes a harmonious chorus by Julius Francis, and the head-turning lyrics of rapper Chris Young. Meanwhile, Sparks unloads battle rhymes full of potent patterns and an entire verse of food-related metaphors. The chemistry between Sparks and G.C. shines on the final track, “Let Me Fly.” Sparks rides G.C.’s soulful, ambient beat as he unravels the myths and misconceptions of his rise to greatness.

About K. Sparks
If a year’s worth of weekly, original, straight-to-the-net songs for his online series “Manic Mondays” wasn’t enough to thrust K. Sparks into the foreground, his musical resume of over 100 mixtape features, six albums, a few promotional CD’s, and download counts for various projects into the 30k’s has surely done just that. He has paved the way for his newest project, A Day in the Life, produced by G.C., just released through HiPNOTT Records.
