Supastition The Blackboard

Supastition The Blackboard

Kam Moye is a man with a great deal on his chest. Nearly three years after deciding that the battles of being a husband and father were far more pertinent than the never-ending struggles with record industry snakes and fairweather friends synonymous with a rap career, the bristly MC has returned to the booth to deliver a few pointed lessons. Speaking candidly about the steps taken to get his life in order ("Rejoice"), about folks scattering like roaches in times of need ("Perfect World") and how real rappers turning actors has left the fakes with the keys to the radio station ("Expectations"), Moye does sound a little bitter, at times. However, his passion and skilled wordplay remain as piercing as ever, as he runs roughshod over the confessedly largely serviceable beats that make up The Blackboard, with a couple of notable exceptions coming in the form of off-beat head-nodder "Daydream" and the piano-laced "Yada Yada." With some clearly necessary purging out of the way, let's see if Supastition manages a few more positive messages on future releases. (Spit Junkies)
