Nice likkle feature on this year’s Juno Rap Recording of the Year winner, Shad. I know I’ve posted a bunch of artists from other cities today but even though Shad is technically from London we have officially annointed him as a Toronto artist and there’s nothing he or anyone else can do about it. Sorry. Lol. Shouts to the Ontario Newsroom for putting this piece together. Shouts to the OMDC too. All you artists should know about them. Any grants for bloggers??? Hollaaaa!
We were lucky to catch Shad for this exclusive interview during 2011′s Juno Week celebrations, just before his epic win in the ‘Best Rap Album’ category. This world-renown, Kanye West-loved, Black Box Recording artist speaks about the importance of creating, sharing & enjoying local culture, his fascinating career & more. Ontario Media Development Corporation’s Chair, Kevin Shea, also speaks to the importance of Ontario artists sharing their gifts internationally & domestically.
