Name: Asia Sparks

Age: 21

Hometown: My dad used to play in the NFL for twelve years so we moved to around a lot. I was born in Philly but lived in Jersey when I was young and it has always lived in my soul. So, while I like to rep the whole USA — Miss USA, Philly and Jersey will always be my heart. They got the best of me.

I grew up listening to: I grew up listening to Biggie, Lil Kim, Queen Latifah, Foxy Brown, Missy Elliot, Eve, TLC, MC Lyte, and Tupac. I know it sounds crazy, but I remember being about five years old listening to those artists, clean versions of course! All I knew was that the beat was hot and the videos were hotter. It’s funny looking back at the way I thought when I was five because that’s when I fell in love with music.

Most people don’t know I: People don’t know that I write all of my songs and I have only been rapping for ten months. They’re often mislead by my skill and progression. I performed at Powerhouse my second month in the game, 106 & Park in my eighth, and Bet Music Matters in my 10th. According, to the rules of the “game” that shouldn’t happen for a female rapper, and I take pride in changing the rules of the game.

My style’s been compared to: It’s funny because I’m always being compared to male artists. Each song of mine are so unique. I have been compared to Biggie, Big Sean, and recently I got Big Pun. However, I get Mc Lyte, Queen Latifah, Left Eye, and Foxy Brown, but I’m happy they compare me to these people because this must mean I have an actual shot in this game.

My standout records and/or moments to date have been: My standout record is “Faja.” It’s definitely a militant song that declares war on the rap game. It states that I’m here to change the game; whether you like it or not. “Faja” is now available on iTunes. On the contrary, my new mixtape Spark Vol. 1 hosted by Don Cannon has a lot of standout records, be sure to check that out on datpiff.com. Download it, you won’t be disappointed.

My goal in Hip-Hop is: My short term goals are to challenge myself every day to become a better rapper, poet, artist, and even using music to better me as a person. My long term goal is to be the best that ever did it!

I’m gonna be the next: I came, I saw, and I’m working on conquering.

    She can only get better being only 10 months in the game. Needs to tighten up on that weave though. Pretty girls don’t need tats.

    Her dad played in the NFL made an name for himself, then she comes out with lyrics and shit like this and ruins that for him. What does that damn N word have to come out in every damn song by a black artist. She is young and should not be talking like that for one. If they can throw that word around like it is nothing then why do the want to kill you and go off the hook when someone else does and then cries racism.
