Every relationship is built on loyalty and trust, but these two qualities can break one just as fast. Without both, it’s hard to see where you and that person stand. Kam Kalloway expresses this same concern in his song “Too Faced,” an upbeat synth-led trap offering that asks why someone would betray the person who’s welcomed them into their life with open arms.
In “Too Faced,” Kam Kalloway blames himself for being so trusting. He begins to wonder why his so-called brother would deceive him. After everything he’s done, Kam Halloway just can’t believe his former pal switched up.
“Hate that I kept it so real with you, I don’t know what else to do / I ain’t been tripping on shit, I swear it’s nothing, it’s nothing, it’s nothing,” he delivers with an autocroon slightly akin to PnB Rock.
Afterward, Kam Kalloway expresses that his past friend’s actions don’t affect him as much because he’s focused on himself, his money, and overall future. Sure, he’s hurt. But he’s got a plan to get ahead.
He sings, “Tycoon I handle my business, give thanks to these riches. I have the ambition / All you had to do was play your position.“
In the end, the “Honestly” artist shows that nothing (or no one) can break his spirit. Despite keeping his end of the friendship deal, he realizes that not everyone is built the same.
“Too Faced” is based on the controversial 2019 movie Cold Pursuit featuring Liam Neeson.
