Tato Spark’s “If I Ruled The World” is an attention-getting, 12-song project that modern NYC music lovers will clamor over. Originally from Virginia and now based in New York City, Tato Spark’s delivery is marked by hard-hitting one-liners delivered in his raspy, deep voice. The result is a collection of tracks that are short yet potent, leaving no room for filler, as he dives headfirst into themes of struggle, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of wealth and success.
The album’s production is relentless, with high-tempo drums set against soft, eerie vocal samples, creating a perfect canvas for Tato Spark’s lyrical aggression. Despite the brevity of the songs, they pack a powerful punch, and each one is a statement in itself.
My favorite tracks on the album are “Move You,” “The Reign (ft. Court Baby)” and “Free Block,” tracks with beautiful instrumentals that really highlight Tato’s abilities and style. These tracks, along with the rest of the album, are bound to make listeners feel like part of a massive, unified crowd, moving in unison to hard-hitting beats punchy lyricism. “If I Ruled The World” is a must-listen for fans of East Coast drill music. It offers an authentic and energetic journey through Tato Spark’s world of raw, gritty rap. With its powerful production and Tato’s commanding delivery, this album is not for the faint of heart.
