While he may be a pretty big deal in our neighbor to the north--famously beating Drake at the Juno Awards back in 2010--Shad has yet to make a serious impact in the United States. With any luck, that should be changing soon. A true lyrical emcee that prides intelligence and love above all else, he's been putting out high-quality jams for almost ten years now, each new record more diverse than the last. On "Hang On," Shad teams up with Toronto's DJ T.Lo for a same-driven single with plenty of cross-regional allure. Check the song out and let us know what you think.
Shad & DJ T.Lo's collaborative LP, Boarding Pass, hits BandCamp on December 1st. Stay tuned as we continue to cover the rollout.
Now they love Louis
CK and David Chappelle because truth is
Comedians speaking for truth than we in music
It's like we traded mediums
Now we the ones who act foolish
