Since Felipe joined our team and reps Canadian hip-hop to the fullest with his posts I haven’t had the opportunity to cover the scene in a while but I am glad I get the chance to post Shad’s new video. Shad is someone that I only recently discovered but I already got his last album and I have to say he is one of my favorites to listen to at the moment. He has a smooth, chill style, always has great content to his rhymes and lyrically is very gifted, I think that is about the best compliment I can give to any of the rappers I put up here. The video for “The Calling” matches his cool demeanor and is a real video without the need to go over the top with effects. I’m not sure the placement for this song but I can only hope it means that he has a new project on the way. According to ingz in the comment section this song is from Danny Digg’s Introducing EP and it also features Jermiside & Destruments.
I’ve been MIA for the last few days because of other responsibilities, but I’m back now. It’s been a great music week for me: I got Kid Cudi’s masterpiece Man On The Moon: The End Of Day, DOOM’s MM..Food and DOOM’s Operation: Doomsday (I’m a big DOOM fan and I managed to find a store that actually had copies of both of these underground classics). But enough about me lol.
Shad K (formerly known as Shad) is a London, Ontario rapper whose talent exceeds most people’s expectations. He hasn’t been in the game for long, but he spits like it’s in his nature. Plain and simple, he sounds like he was born to rap (no wonder Toronto blogs often try to convince people that he’s from the megacity lol). To be honest though, I wish he had more variety in the beats he rhymes over. Regardless, this is another killer track by him, and it is off Introducing, an EP by Irish beat-maker Danny Diggs. Big ups to cityonmyback for this. Download here.
Line of the track: “I’m the Freudian X / Freedom by any dreams necessary.” I know Kanye did something similar on “Good Morning”, but Shad K does it better.
