Bio

Who is Sparksism?

I go by Sparksism I am a hip-hop Emcee and Producer residing in Alexandria Virginia.  I have spent the better half of his life in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  In Congo, I was exposed to many different varieties of music from an early age.  My international influences range from the likes of Koffi Olomide, Zaiko Langa Langa to renowned hip-hop artists such as Public Enemy, Dr Dre, The Notorious B.I.G and Tupac Shakur.  I credits Nas, Kanye West and Fela Kuti as his major sources of influence.  I like to revive my african heritage by often uniquely fusing some of the key components of hip-hop with rhythmic African drums to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Story-telling, beat breaks and unique samples are the key components to my works.  Through my music I attempt to shed awareness on my beloved African continent. 

To date I have released one LP, the self-titled Sparksism which was released in 2009. I have done music production on 4 independent albums under a artist ran label City Limits Entertainment.  I've been meticulously crafting my second full length project. Blitzkrieg, My new L.P. is set to send waves through the hip-hop community. Its should be taken as a wakeup call for all artists from the District of Columbia.  The fully self-produced Blitzkrieg offers a great assortment of songs and features from the likes of Tabi Bonney, Lyriciss, Moeazy, Zeezo, Robert-O and Moe Millie.  The project is slated to be released in summer 2014 on Congolese Independence Day.
