Kam Moye (aka
Supastition), a different breed of emcee, is gearing up to release his newest album, Splitting Image. Being the first album released after his name change from Supastition to his actual birth name, Kam shows that he has developed lyrically and isn’t afraid to touch on mature subject matter. The album is due October 27th on MYX Music Label. The lead single off the album is “Lets Be Honest” with production being handled by Veterano. The song is about having a humble attitude towards life, something rarely spoken about in today’s industry. Talking about the inspiration behind the song’s concept, Kam says, “The song was inspired by a quote that I read once which said ‘happiness isn’t having what you want, it’s wanting what you have.’ That’s my perspective in life on everything from family to my career. It’s not settling, but sometimes you gotta just accept that maybe it wasn’t meant for you to have what everyone else has… It’s cool to dream but not to the point where you don’t take notice of how good you have it already to just be alive.”
Kam relays the song’s message from the get-go, saying, “If you don’t appreciate what you have right now, you’ll never appreciate what’s coming to you in the future.” The song is conceptual in the way that each verse tackles different issues relating to materialism and superficial tendencies. Kam goes in on materialism for the first verse before touching on women and relationships in verse two and stardom in the third and final verse, rapping, “I don’t need people in the streets to know me / Man, I kind of like keeping it discreet and low-key.” With Veterano providing a soulful backdrop for Kam’s true-to-life delivery, this track is poised to turn some heads as the lead single off his new album.
