Album Review

Rapster continued giving a leg up to deserving American hip-hoppers (Freddie Foxxx, Baby Blak, Pete Rock) with Graymatter, the debut solo record from Maylay Sparks (aka Rahsheed). A rapper every bit as tough and menacing as fellow underground heavyweights Cappadonna or Freddie Foxxx, Sparks doesn't have much to add to the hip-hop lexicon, but his delivery and rhymes are excellent. (Rhyming "hat tricks" and "ice picks" won't blow anyone out of the water, but he makes it groove.) He also has a smooth flow, knows how to keep enough space within his rhymes, and benefits from excellent productions. (DJ Noize takes most of the tracks, and an old Sparks hand, DJ Whiteshadow, makes only one appearance.) The sound matches Sparks' rapping perfectly, with rich and gritty '70s Philly soul samples bolstered by the dense, claustrophobic sound of N.Y.C. hitters DJ Premier or RZA.

Turns the Tables

Maylay Sparks debut album shows that he has his heart into Hip-Hop. He puts forth powerful energy when he raps which only boosts his genius lyrics to another level. Maylay clearly states his opinion on what he thinks Hip-Hop is and sticks by it. Putting his heart and soul into every line this is a exhilerating album.

Maylay never ceases to amaze.

Now I heard only a couple of songs but that's all I needed to hear to know that this is true hip hop music. They lyrics are genius and his flow seems to synchronize every beat with an effortless delivery. This is a smooth collection of songs, this is a must buy.
