Anybody up on my man Shad? One of my boys saw him open for Lupe like, years ago in Toronto, and he told me he blew everyone away. Then finally, a week or so ago, I saw him live myself, and I've gotta say, I was seriously fucking impressed. I know every time someone with a shred of talent surfaces people go around calling them a "breath of fresh air", but Shad actually feels that way. Dood is crazy talented as a rapper, he freestyles like I've never seen before, plays guitar competently, he's charismatic and funny, basically everything you could ever hope for in an emcee. I met him a bit before the show, too, and he's a really cool dood. All this and he comes from- get this- London Ontario? Figure that shit out.
His MySpace is here
, and you can check out his video for "The Old Prince Still Lives At Home" right...HERE!?!?!?
Check him out, he's good people.
