Change is one of Michigan''s finest underground emcee''s to date. From age 13, Change has been writing lyrics and rapping in the underground scene. He got his first real taste of the industry in 2000 when he moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. He met up with a group of emcees intent on making moves, and hitting the studio hard-paced and serious. Over the next two years, he learned his craft in the studio, from mixing, to mastering, writing and recording... Change is a beast in the booth, commonly knocking out full tracks from start to finish in under an hour. He released a 5 track EP with his label-mates in Las Vegas in 2002 entitled "Elekt Poetz EP Vol. I" which was released to a widespread audience. His solo debut was released one year later, in summer of 2003 to great reviews, and consistent sales. He''s hoping to do even more with his new release, "Tuesday Mournings".
Many people have stated that Change is the next big thing in Michigan Hip-Hop, and he would humbly agree. "I think what I''m doing is hunger-driven, and purposeful. Too many cats are seeking money and fame, and I''m just trying to change the game for the better..." - Change
Change grew up on the streets of Michigan, living the fast life, in street gangs and making bad choices. "I did what I felt I had to do to survive, feel me? I had to do me... But now that I''m grown, I see how it was wrong, and how I should have done things differently. If I can help other young cats see that by telling my life story through music, then that''s good enough for me." - Change
Although he''s just begun making a small dent in the underground, Change''s fan base is continually growing. Change''s method of drawing in fans is " quite simple" he says, "I just do my best to be real. I let my fans get a glimpse of who I am through my music, and people can relate to me through that. Fans respect that, and they tell other people about you when they feel you." And indeed his fans have spread the word, as he''s averaging over 100,000 plays a month on Soundclick alone. Change also rocked the mic at 24 different venues this year, including a Southern tour in Georgia and South Carolina.

Change is bringin the heat on his new LP, "Tuesday Mournings". "The first album don''t even begin to compare to this one", Change said. The album is slated for 17 brand new bangers from Change, and a much deeper look into the emcee''s life as the title track is taken from the story of his fathers death in November of 2003. "I think 2005 is my time to shine, and this album is gonna break down some doors for me in the industry. Ya''ll need to get on board, or get left behind." - Change
