When Shad and Skratch Bastid get together, success is certain. Their latest offering is “Fam Jam,” a mild, honky-tonk groove that samples a Jay Z line from “Otis,” and features some thoughtful reflections on how Canada’s demographic diversity came to be. Shad also takes some time to reflect on his own story, noting the identity conundrums that spring up when one grows up in a foreign land while still trying to maintain ties to the motherland.
The video is fairly festive, but even it has its somber moments. Watch below and mark your calendars for October 15, the release date for Shad‘s next LP, Flying Colours.
And if this is a bit too heavy for you, Shad‘s song “Stylin” packages his thoughtful rhymes in a more digestible (“head-noddable”) form.
