Sh8kes Rounds Out National Poetry Month With ‘Regrets’, Taps Jamla’s The Musalini For Music Video

Published author, motivational speaker, business owner, and spoken word poet from North Carolina Robin “Sh8kes” Williamson released his debut EP Chance 2 Change exclusively on Bandcamp on March 29, 2021. Narrated by one of Southern rap’s most coveted voices Big Rube (of the Dungeon Family), the seven track project served as a personal testimony of healing and growth through love, life lessons, connection with family, and much more. Last week (4/18/2023), Sh8kes shared more of his personal testimony with his new loose, 
Truss One-produced single “Regrets”, featuring a guest verse from New York emcee The Musalini. (of 9th Wonder‘s Jamala Records). Today (4/24/2023), on this final week of National Poetry Month, Sh8kes shared the song’s official music video via YouTube.

This poem came from a place of failure, pain and self awareness. I went through so many things during 2022, I began to question if what I was doing was the right thing. I never wanted to give up, but questioned if I needed to switch my focus to something else. I found myself reevaluating the people around me that have been in my life for 20 plus years. It seemed like I gave so much of me, but never got the same in return.” – Sh8kes
