AllHipHop.com. Sparks,

born Kenneth Johnson, was signed to Roc-A-Fella Records by CEO’s Jay-Z and Damon

Dash and was part of the State Property rap group, which featured Philly rappers

Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Oschino Vazquez and Omillio Sparks, and the Young Gunz

and Peedi Crakk.The

group split apart amidst legal issues involving Sigel, as well as the sale of

Roc-A-Fella Records to the Island Def Jam Music Group in 2004. Sparks

recently voiced his frustrations with Jay-Z, because he was unable to clear various

samples containing Jay-Z’s voice for his upcoming album The Pay Back, which

is being released on his own independent label, Colossal Entertainment. “My

major focus right now is getting my situation right wherever it may be, I have

a few situations on the table," Sparks said. "The good thing about it

now is I am older now, and understand the business a lot more than when I was

a young boy and just happy to be on TV with a n***a. I am about my paper now and

most importantly me. When the album drops this summer everyone will know who the

f**k I am.”According

to Sparks’ reps, The Pay Back could be released on Roc-A-Fella. Former

label mate Beanie Sigel contacted Colossal Entertainment to discuss Sparks’ possible

return to the Roc, as well as the prospects of a State Property 3 album.Sparks

helped author verses and hooks on both State Property albums. His most

high profile appearance is a cameo on Jay-Z’s hit single "I Just Wanna Love

You."The

rapper also has prominent roles in the movies State Property and State

Property 2.
