Rapper Shad opens his latest song “Always Winnin'” with a detailed account of how he spent his night at home watching Homeland. While it’s not exactly the scene setter you’d expect from a track with such a boastful title, the London, Ontario-based rapper is completely dexterous, spitting about Reeboks, 30 Rock, and an endless stream of pop culture references. When Shad calls out his fellow Canadian Drake with “I started from the opposite of the bottom / still on top of it”, it’s as chuckle-worthy as it is fun to listen to. Check it out below (via Complex).
Later this year, Shad will release a collaborative EP with DJ T.L.O, who provided the Gang Starr-sampling beat for “Always Winnin'”.
