At The Same Time

"Known for his impressive wordplay and introspective lyricism, Ontario-based rapper Shad debuted in 2005 with the self-made When This Is Over that he paid for by winning a talent competition. His underground buzz maintained, but it was not until 2007’s The Old Prince that his body of work would be recognized as a bigger level.

He received two nominations for the LP in 2008 from the Juno and Polaris committees, though victory eluded him. Shad substantially stepped it up both lyrically, as heard on lead single “Yaa I Get It,” and contributor-wise for 2010’s TSOL. The album features Broken Social Scene’s Lisa Lobsinger and Brendan Canning along with singer Justin Nozuka and rapper Kamau.

I've been a fan of Shad since the day that I heard the song "A Story No One Told" of his debut album When This Is Over released in 2005. 5 years later he is back with his 3rd studio album TSOL and I must say just like his previous work this is an amazing record. Shad is an artist who has a lot to offer plus he has the ability to keep you interested throughout the whole CD. With his intelligent and thoughtful lyrics combined with well-chosen beats he manages to create hip hop music the way it should be. I would recommend this to everyone!
