    Product Details

    Summary

    In the 1980s, as Hip Hop caught fire around New York, Sparky D was coming up in the Van Dyke Projects in Brownsville Brooklyn. She would go on to be one of the first recorded solo female rappers and rise to Hip Hop stardom. Early in her career she was a pivotal player in what came to be known as "The Roxanne Wars". It all kicked off with UTFO's "Roxanne Roxxane" followed by Roxanne Shante's debut "Roxanne's Revenge" and then a salvo back at Shante'with UTFO and a female MC known as "The Real Roxanne." Sparky D then started a trend that ran for what some say was over a hundred assorted answer records and nearly the rest of the decade by jumping into the Roxanne trend with "Sparky's Turn (Roxanne, You're Through)." Massive spins and sales throughout the city followed. The success of the cut lead to another handful of 12" releases, and this release, her proper full length debut "This Is Sparky D's World," produced by her boyfriend and old school legend Spyder D. Though the record didn't take off to the extent that her label mates Boogie Down Productions found with "Criminal Minded"....well, what ever did take off like "Criminal Minded". To this day the release serves as a testament to the power of one of Hip Hop's first female MC's, after all, "This IS Sparky D's World."

    Traffic Entertainment Group in partnership with B-Boy records is proud to release this extended version of the album, out of print in any format for over 14 years. Housed in a handsome 6 panel digipak featuring extended artwork and audio including all the 12" cuts, mixes and instrumentals from Sparky's classic "Throwdown" and "I Can't Stop" vinyl singles.
