Ep. #44: Shad

Shad is one of North America’s most thoughtful and skilled hip-hop artists and we here in Canada are proud to call him one of our own. The gifted MC has won a Juno and been nominated for the Polaris Music Prize twice, most recently for his record TSOL. Its stunning follow-up is Flying Colours, which is out now via Black Box and brings Shad to a city near you on his extensive North American tour. Here he discusses his recent stint co-hosting the Polaris Music Prize, his new album and why we’re all doing ok, stepping up his skills, Jay Z’s recent output, hip-hop’s fascination with guest stars, Canadian politics and multiculturalism, the song “Yall Know Me” and more.
