With “Stylin,” the second cut from Shad‘s forthcoming album Flying Colours, the ever-emerging MC takes a much more aggressive approach to his rap game. Accompanied by Saukrates and heavy collaborator Skratch Bastid, Shad brings a new sense of bravado to his music (and the video) which couldn’t be more out-of-character for him. In fact, the music itself carries a sort of “f*ck you” attitude that is rare for the clean-cut, Canadian poster-boy of rap.
Quick and witty lyrical structure only furthers Shad‘s rep, and because the video is set in an empty, dimly-lit room, his lyrics become the center of attention. Since there are no bills to throw around or scantily-clad women to ogle at, Shad also ensures that no attention is diverted away from his thought-provoking rhymes.
Watch the video below and be on the lookout for Flying Colours when it drops on October 15th.
