Despite having released two EPs this year; January’s Black Cassette and Gold, which dropped in April, K. Sparks is showing no signs of slowing down.

The Queens rapper is releasing a joint album, Urban Couture with Vermont producer Es-K on October 15th.

Inspired by recent political and social events, the majority of which is straight-up sickening, K. Sparks decided it was the perfect time to drop a sampling from the upcoming project, delivering the single “Make America Fake Again.”

“The song discusses the various racial and political dynamics within our society in these present times,” reads the SoundCloud description, and in a time of a more racially divided America, K. Sparks doesn’t shy away from his Black pride, harmonizing “See, ah, I know who I am / And I’m happy with who I am / Your perception of me doesn’t change who I am / I am my own life, the shade of my complexion has seen darker days / I am beautiful, Black with my Black Pride, Black Love is still alive.”
