Rappers sound best when they're least aware of themselves. Exhibit A: Maylay Sparks. The cat can blab about smokin' dutches or doing the nasty all he wants, because, whatever the subject, he'll still sound fresh-he doesn't so much spit lyrics as chuck them at you. This guy definitely deserves the best, sexiest beats and fortunately his cabal of producers (the best of whom is DJ Noize) come through on Graymatter for the most part. The only tracks that don't bump are "The Suare" and "Head Check"-yo, someone give those joints new boobs and a rhinoplasty.
