PREMIERE: The Sparks Foundation ft. Project Pat, Smoke DZA, Harry Fraud, and More “Parts Unknown” EP

Two years ago, wrestling and hip hop fanatics Emilio Sparks (Shade45) and John Sparkz (SRFSCHL), together known as The Sparks Foundation, released an EP with an impressive feature list of Dave East, Smoke DZA, Michael Christmas, Casey Veggies, King Chip, and more. Now they’re back with the follow up project, sticking to the theme of having producers flip wrestler entrance songs and emcees doling out bars.

As the overlap between hip hop and wrestling fans continues to grow, we hope more creative projects like this start popping up more. You can check out the project below, as presented by Odd Sox and The Sparks Foundation. You can also read below what The Sparks Foundation had to say about the EP:

“When we first started this series, we wanted to combine two of our favorite worlds from our childhood till now, rap and wrestling. We were also inspired by Smoke DZA’s Ringside Mixtape series, so we dropped Forever Madness, and got a crazy amount of love from rap and wrestling fans everywhere. Not too long after that, even more rappers and wrestlers either loved the project or wanted to be on it. It was a no-brainer to do a sequel, this time honoring the late great Ultimate Warrior. So, we connected with some of our music pals like Trae, Twelvyy, Project Pat, Hatty Maines, and some our our favorite producers including Harry Fraud, Audible Doctor, Mike Cash and more. We hit up Big E from the current WWE Tag Champs, The New Day to help us curate the EP, and today we’re proud to finally unveil it. Hope you enjoy Parts Unknown.
