The host of the Emmy and Peabody award-winning Netflix Original Hip-Hop Evolution docu-series, hip-hop artist Shad announces his new album A Short Story About a War.
The new concept album is described as “holding 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 is scheduled to be released October 26th via Secret City records.
The first single off of the upcoming album titled “The Fool Pt. 1 (Get it Got it Good)” was directed by Justin Broadbent and is an ode to Shad’s truthfulness.

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
