Spotlight – SHAD

Shad

Meet Shad K, a dope canadian hip hop artist. A lot of people may not know this, but his 2005 debut album When This Is Over was self made and financed with the money ($17,500) he won from 91.5 The Beat’s Rhythm of the Future talent competition during he was a student and undergraduate at Wilfrid Laurier University. He’s also an accomplished freestyler with the ability to drop flows at the drop of a hat.

In 2007, Shad was signed to Black Box Recordings and soon released his second album, The Old Prince in 2008. His style has been compared to K-OS and Common, all having a laid back swagger and precise delivery. One of my personal favourite tracks is, “I Don’t Really Like To” from his latest album.
