Shad, Tope

DAVE CANTOR
9 pm, Thursday June 12 | $10 advance, $12 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[NEW-WORLD RAPS] Shad’s raps are dreams—some realized, some still an ethereal thing the Canadian MC just grasps at. The rapper explains all that on 2013's Flying Colours. But he also tells the story of his parents. Immigrants from Kenya, one worked minimum wage gigs while the other is a surgeon. And then there’s Shad himself, a guy who’s received more than fleeting acclaim in Canada but seems to be relegated to the conscious underground in the States. It’s fitting, given the content of his lyrics and production that skirts contemporary trends. But like his family’s travails, Shad’s struggling to get over. It’s a safe bet he’ll make it eventually.
