Canadian emcee Shad has occupied an interested role in his native country as cultural critic with the CBC. After relieving Jian Ghomeshi of his duties after a Nationally publicized sexual misconduct scandal, Shad put his aspirations as a rapper aside for just a moment. Unfortunately his tenure on CBC radio lasted little over a year, not because he was less-than affable or misinformed, but because he’d been thrust into a media spotlight with zero radio experience whatsoever.
Thankfully Shad has rebounded from his “sacking” to return to what he knows best, the performing arts. Shad conjointly announced a tour, album and video single all within the same breadth of expression. “A Short Story About A War” is available for pre-order here.

Lord what do you make of this way that I’m walking
This path that I’m on, you made a way for me
Hope that isn’t wrong, nowadays my legs is weak
What if my staff isn’t strong, what if it breaks
Uh, who got me? uh, you got me!
I know that you got me good
