    Maylay Sparks
    United States
    RAHSHEED AKA MAYLAY SPARKS Philadelphia is a special place, as far as its density of outstanding musical talent is concerned, is definitely one of the most bandied around platitudes of the last two years. What is easily overlooked, however, is that the musical trend couldn´t be more varied despite the numerous connections. Now, Rahsheed, alias Maylay Sparks, presents the New Genre of Futuristic Hip Hop !! His excellent reputation has so far almost exclusively been enjoyed in insider circles is mainly due to the fact that most of his productions to date have only been available as imports. His band, Rahsheed and Illadvised, of which Baby Black is also a member, has already been firing up underground heads for years. Together with The High & Mighty(Rawkus), Rahsheed was also one of the founders of the Eastern Conference label in 1995. In 1999 working with Los Angeles based independent label ReadyRock Records , Rahsheed aka Maylay Sparks was givin honorable mention in Time Magazine’s Hip Hop Tribute Edition featuring Lauryn Hill , for “ Unusual Styles / Imani , noted as one of the best independent releases of the year. Shortly thereafter signing his 1st Major deal with Joe Nicolo’s ( RuffHouse/Columbia ) , new imprint Judgement Records /RCA , he relocated to Copenhagen and produced Gray Matter, his first album under his own name. Touring with Boulevard Connection , The Roots , Last Emperor, DJ Miz, Dilated Peoples and more, at the “ Roskilde Festival “ , jumped off the stage and broke his leg. That´s how his stay was inadvertently extended. Since then, Rahsheed has become firmly anchored in the hip-hop scene there and has started a family. His musical output has once again increased in quality. The twelve tracks on Gray Matter are beyond a doubt among the best that hip-hop has to offer. His universal musical approach has fallen on particularly fertile ground in Denmark. Rahsheed has achieved this in a particularly impressive manner. His tracks tower above the usual hip-hop standards, far ahead of the densely occupied pack. For me, it was clear from the outset that I wanted to structure this project as simply as possible. Hence the title, Gray Matter ( Rapster/BBE ). It is in tended to affect people in a very direct way. Rahsheed produced some of the songs in the USA with the help of Malik B (The Roots), Omni, DJ Jaz and Big Jim Slade. The rest of the tracks came about in Cph., with Context , DJ Noize and The Prunes. The twelve tracks sound suitably multifaceted, too. Despite the many co-producers, Rahsheed never lost sight of the real aim of producing a hip-hop record. In the meantime, he has already begun working on some new projects a combination of soul and hip-hop elements. New productions under the name Maylay Sparks are also already being planned. These include Legend Of My Own Mind ( City Connection/ Virgin ), a band brought to life in conjunction with DJ White Shadow from Norway. Work will therefore not be running out too quickly for Rahsheed. After already releasing 15 singles under various names, Gray Matter , the Ill Collabo (Hotshit/Sony) , a German subsidiary , boasting features from heavy weights like Eric Sermon, and Flaskworthy are among the first records to be marketed worldwide. It was time to take this step. Hip-hop is much more than just music for Rahsheed. That much is clear in each and every song. Now we bring you the new installations !! " Flaskworthy LP ( Longrange Dist/E one ), Koolade feat. Malay Sparks "You & Yours/ Philly Morning" EP , Blackout Music Croatia and now the special edition EP , Shotgun Wedding LP 2013 , and new 2014 highly anticipated release “ Spit On It “, produced by K Sluggah of Muddy Fatique ( Sweden ). Now in 2016 the forthcoming release of “ The Rebel’s Renaissance “ on BelowSystem Records in DIGITAL format only Rlease date 13th May 2016 . This will be the fist and only "Vinyl Porject " !!
