WATCH | SHAD Drops Homemade Visuals For THE FOOL PT. 1 (GET IT GOT IT GOOD)

Filed under: 
Music Videos

SHAD's first single “The Fool Pt.1 (Get it Got it Good)” is a master class in juxtaposition; a bouncy beat mixed with frenzy. Shad’s delivery is breathless - an effusive outpouring that borders on screams, cries and joy. The video for the track, unveiled today, was directed by Justin Broadbent and is an ode to Shad’s truthfulness.

For his new album, polymath emcee Shad has vibrantly imagined and created an entirely new world. A Short Story About A War releases October 26 on Secret City Records. This concept album holds a mirror to our world - a provocative story told through disarmingly catchy songs that weaves through issues of migration, environment, politics and above all, the human spirit.

The album was created in collaboration with dozens of musicians and engineers: From luminaries like Kaytranada, 2oolman of A Tribe Called Red, and Lido Pimienta, to crafty indie rockers Yukon Blonde, and Toronto rap veterans Ian Kamau, Eternia, and DJ T Lo.

Their contributions bring multiple textures and colours to Shad's singular vision. A North American tour begins this fall, check out the dates below:
