One of the building blocks of my site is Shad. He is a block and the glue. I love this guy’s music like you will never know. He speaks to me in my language, my native tongue. He is doing big things and I am convinced he won’t stop until he’s under the earth. Much love as always to you SK!
If I were a rapper, I would want the title “Most Intelligent in the Game.” I think that would feel pretty good. I agree with the names on this list, although I’ve never listened to Kool Keith. Aesop at number one, huh? He certainly packs ’em in and uses words that few others are using. If you follow my blog at all, you know I’m going to mention Shad. I know he hasn’t been around as long as some of these other guys, but he certainly fits the bill of “intelligent.” I’ll stop before I get too fan boy on my own blog, but I hope brotha Shad won’t stop slaying tracks till he’s unanimously atop all these lists.

Now this video can clearly be dubbed “so 90s.” It’s more 90s than Stinky Peterson walking the dog on a duncan yo-yo whilst wearing moon boots on a trampoline with no net. So much pre Y2K make ya wanna say “Hip hop hooray” like naughty by nature back in the day.
“Want to be the king like Lebron, but they don’t want the heat.”
I am not sure where to find this song. The only place I have seen it is on Youtube. Anyway, I love songs that cause reflection and this song does that for me. “I self-deprecate more than I boast and I boast a lot.”
I have decided your New Year’s resolution for you, listen to SHAD more…and also work off gma’s christmas cookies.
Watch the beginning, it gets me every time. Big up to Braze and my man Shad for killin it like always. “Battling me is just no fair like free cab rides.”
