“The song illustrates a transition from one life to the next. In the video, a younger Sh8kes foresees his life ahead through journaling and writing poetry in his notebook as he grows through what I’ve already experienced as an older and wiser version of myself.” – Sh8kes
Dedicated to Sh8kes’ cousin who nearly lost his battle with COVID-19, Chance 2 Change is a collection of Sh8kes’ spoken word poetry that conveys the legacy of Black trauma in America; his personal journey of healing and growth through love, life lessons, connection with family, and much more. The project is narrated by one of Southern rap’s most coveted voices Big Rube (of the Dungeon Family), and includes two pieces from Williamson’s self-published book It’s Personal Vol. 1. The exclusive Bandcamp version of the project is hosted by DJ Fatz the Governor with scratches from DJ Skaz Digga(Big Daddy Kane). A tagless version of Chance 2 Change is now available on all digital streaming platforms.
