2 Sides of the Story
The Voice Of The North This is a factual account of an individual's life; this is not a movie, a video, or even a television show. This is the life and career of Splitzide, a hip-hop artist who pulls us into his world through the factual accounts of his life. He cannot be imitated or replicated; he has traveled below the bottom layers of this life and ended up on top. This is the story of an artist who has seen the negative, and has evolved into something very positive. By the age of Fifteen Splitzide was forced to fend for himself; he began renting an apartment and living on his own. Shortly after, Splitzide left High School looking for immediate gratification and a way to survive. With no real supervision he took advantage of his surroundings and began making money on the streets. Splitzide wound up serving over four months in prison and this symbolized a turning point in his young life. Knowing that prison was nowhere to live, he began taking advantage of the time by writing and setting goals for his eventual release. Splitzide penned the lyrics to "Trapped" and "Make My Bail," two tracks off his current album, 2 Sides Of The Story while incarcerated. Through his constant evolution as a person and as an artist, Splitzide began cashing in on years of introverted thought and began making music. His style is so genuine because it is born from his life experiences. This is not about wanting to be "gangsta" and Splitzide sheds that image whenever possible, this is about writing and sharing the experiences that have shaped his life. Evidence of his development is obvious; Splitzide offers the single Cool Breeze "The Bud Is NFX" and a full length, Splitzide. His total sales are very impressive, nationally he has sold 12,000 copies and for the most part all have been reported through SoundScan. Proof of his business and marketing savvy are shown through his utilization of several online retailers and more impressive, through major traditional retailers. Splitzide has also taken advantage of promotional outlets such as radio. He currently is receiving spins on WKBOL (Waterloo, IA) and WKMOJ (Minneapolis, MN). Another reason for his success is his tireless work ethic. Splitzide performs throughout the Midwest and the South pulling in impressive numbers and constantly attracting new fans. Besides writing and touring Spitzide is currently looking for a major distribution deal. He's come along way from envisioning his own success to undoubtedly achieving success. The sky is literally the limit for Splitzide; he is truly a gifted performer and an equally gifted business mind.
