Review of “The Old Prince,” by Shad


In his sophomore effort, Canadian rapper Shad mixes race-conscious rhymes with soulful samples, bass-charged techno beats and nods to jazz and classical music. His Common-esque delivery and rhymes can get sloppy, but it’s overall a feel good and thought-provoking record.

Favorite tracks: 5, 6, 9, 10, 12
