By the end of the year, K. Sparks had become an emerging Hip Hop artist with well-received appearances on numerous outlets such as XXL, Boi-1da, 2dopeboyz, DJ Booth, okayplayer, Kevin Nottingham, HipHopDX, All HipHop, Nahright, Tune Core, and hundreds of others. He proceeded to release his single 'Watching Me' on Power 105 DJ/Radio Personality DJ Envy's Audio Up Rising album to well received acclaim. In addition he released his single 'Needs vs Wants' on Nick Cannons Wildstyle Champs Album that also received notable attention. He continued to make a name for himself performing at numerous venues, such as The Underground Showdown opening up for Joe Budden and Talib Kweli. And then The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival featuring Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Q Tip, and MOP, as well as sharing the stage with the legendary Lords of The Underground.
In addition to his music and show schedule he continues to align himself with power brands that secure his music for placements in promotional media. These power brands include Mercedes, Marie Claire, Forever 21, Monster Energy, Power Aid/Lebron James, Everlane, and Just Drift. To date his music catalog is extensive, numerous albums sold independently, and receiving over 1,000,000 streams. But to his credit, he remains humble and focuses on helping others through his music. K. Sparks combines life experiences, social commentary and a witty sense of humor to provide the listener with a more in depth look at society, a message of encouragement and hope.
