Shad/ ‘A Short Story About A War’/ Secret City Records
This trenchant concept album by the Polaris-nominated and JUNO-winning MC holds a mirror to our world. Shad tells his incisive and uplifting story through disarmingly catchy songs that weave through issues of migration, environment, politics and, above all, the human spirit. Driving his sound is a swath of hip-hop beats, trap, funk and jazz featuring collaborations from genre-less luminaries (Kaytranada, 2oolman, Lido Pimienta), crafty indie rockers (Yukon Blonde) and Toronto rap vets (Ian Kamau, Eternia, DJ T Lo).
