Video: Shad - Rose garden

"Rose Garden" is taken from 'TSOL', the third album from Vancouver based MC Shad. The son of Rwandan immigrants, Shad invested time into his craft while growing up in London... He cites the likes of Common, Rass Kass and Outkast as his influences and you can definitely hear that 'golden era' style of hip hop which's doing pretty well in 2010. Just look at the likes of J Cole, Wale, K Naan and that side of things which is doing really well at the moment, which I do respect as it IS real hip hop, BUT for me it just isn't creative enough overall. Despite that, the OGs of that scene still have their credibility today such as Sean Price who I only got in to since he came back in the scene..
