From Michelle at Audible Treats:

The Video:

Kam Moye, formerly Supastition, is proud to announce the release of his latest video, "Splitting Image". Produced by Symbolyc One, and shot and directed by Matt Koza, whose credits include Little Brother, RJD2, and Kam's own "Let's Be Honest," the video depicts a story about life's choices forcing growth and gaining knowledge. Apparent throughout the video, Kam's name change is more than just cosmetic - the "splitting image" also refers to a distinct change lyrically towards a wiser persona with a great deal of life experience and perspective.

The breathy and angelic vocal stylings of Neenah complement the setting of the video and serve to balance Kam's confident and poised rhymes. Standing amidst a barren backdrop, Kam delivers a powerful message and challenges listeners to not only "grow older" but to also "grow" as individuals. Kam Moye explains, "I wanted it to document my real life story of becoming a father at 16 and show the pressure I was facing at the time. I couldn't even take care of myself when I brought my daughter into the world." He continues, "It's a way of showing younger people that your life isn't over when you make a bad decision but it means you've got to work twice as hard at your dreams. Hopefully someone will feel inspired by it." By juxtaposing Kam's verbals with visuals of a teenager's unplanned circumstances, the video makes good on its promise of hope and resilience. Kam Moye raps, "It's hard to backtrack, start a new beginning. / So starting today I'm vowing to make a new ending. / They say a new you is hard to rebuild / But keeping some personal flaws are just part of the deal."
