CHCKLK has dropped the visuals for “Young Boy” and it is dark, melodious, and introspective. We find the lead of the video stumbling through a neighborhood after clearly being injured, shirt bloodied and all. It’s a tale of choices and we’re hoping this is just a piece of a bigger story.
“This is the story of a young boy who grew into a young man/ who grew into his own skin, didn’t choose the game but it chose him”
“Young Boy,” CHCKLK explained in an email to The FADER, “is like a portal into understanding my outlook on life, which is always double-sided. It’s the fork in the road that I always find myself revisiting. Do I want to continue to chase success, which could inevitably mean the erosion of my values and everything I stand for? Or do I skip on any chance of living comfortably, and fight for the beliefs of myself and others. It’s like the old proverb: there are two wolves inside us all. Which one wins? The one you feed.”
