A single rapper may not be able to Change the World, but Chris Webby‘s determined to be part of the solution, not part the problem. On his latest single, the Connecticut emcee uses his lyrical soapbox to speak out on a few of the most pressing issues of our day. In earnest, forceful verses, the artist surveys a world wracked by war, natural disasters and poverty, chastising previous generation for leaving us to clean up their messes. Frequent collaborator Ski Beatz does his thing on the production tip, recruiting bassist Brady Watt and guitarist Dave Webster to add extra punch to his sampling of Ten Years After’s 1971 single, I’d Love to Change the World, and Chad Tennies directs the record’s official visuals, starring Snow on tha Bluff leading man Curtis Snow. Featuring this cut, the reader-approved title track and much more, Bars on Me is available now for digital download.
