Despite being from London, ON, Shad has become a Toronto hometown hero, who not only puts on for the city in day-to-day life, but also on Netflix’ Hip-Hop Evolution series. He’s also been able to capture the hearts of fans across Canada, allowing him to tour back and forth to sold out shows effortlessly. To the excitement of fans, this past October, Shad released his first album in 5 years titled, A Short Story About A War. It’s an interesting album that sheds light on how we handle fear, and as humans, what causes them in the first place — amongst other things, of course.
Shad brought the album to the Great Hall on December 15th, performing to a sold-out crowd and killing the show.
