Kam Moye ft. Neenah – Splitting Image (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 13th, 2010 by Hyphen

From the Myx Music homies:

“The video was directed by Matt Koza of HOJ Media and also co-stars, Sudan Green (the son of famed spoken word poet Ursula Rucker) who plays the younger version of Kam in the video. The video documents Kam’s life story of becoming a father at 16 and shows the pressure he was facing at the time. By no means does this song/video condone teenage pregnancy. Its a way of showing younger people that your life isnt over when you make a bad decision. It just means you‘ve got to work twice as hard at your dreams. Hopefully someone will feel inspired by it. Enjoy!”

My recent foray into the home buying market makes me wonder how anyone could develop wealth when having a kid as a teenager.  More power to those who can still do it, but damn, talk about stacking the odds against you.

Kam Moye – Let’s Be Honest (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 7th, 2009 by Hyphen

Here’s the first video from Supastition’s Kam Moye’s album, Splitting Image, out now on Myx Music Label.  There’s a lot to be said about being content with the little things in life and realizing that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.  I think you understand this more and more with every day that passes and at 27, I see this so much clearer than I did at, say, 22.

Grown folks hip-hop FTW.

Supastition as Kam Moye – Black Enough? (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 19th, 2008 by Hyphen

(that 3rd verse is fierce)

Speak on it Supa Kam. While I never want artists to be locked into a stereotype, I love when dope MC’s tackle serious issues like Supa did with his newest video for “Black Enough?” off the Self-Centered EP. If you’re sleeping on the Kam Moye project, read up and download it for free right here. It’s one of my favorite releases of the year and this is one of its standout tracks.

Over a dope beat from Eric G (206 like what!), Supa speaks on a controversial aspect of the institutional racism we have here in America. As a middle class white dude, I’ve obviously never had to confront this issue head on, but I’ve seen it play out in an ugly fashion on many ocassions. It’s even been a big talking point during Obama’s run for the White House, so whether you want to admit it or not, it’s still here in 2008. If there’s more educated discourse similar to this song, perhaps we can get things moving in the right direction.

Be sure to stay up to date on Supa and Reform School Music on his blog.
