Never heard of Shad until this. Now I'm checking his latest album out and will probably download this collaboration.

Shad is my rap hero. He has the best lyrics but isn't boring like those other 'alternative underground' rappers.

I have no clue why Shad hasn't blown up. He totally deserves it.

his material isn't marketable -- in that it doesn't glamourize guns, money, and bitches.
i agree that more people need to be listening to him though.

Clearly Dallas wouldn't agree. So no, no he wouldn't.

I get what you're saying completely... but.. I feel like that's not true. I think there definitely is that crowd that wouldn't be immediately into him because he's so atypical... but I think because he's so honest and true. And so intelligent and eloquent.. I really think there are a lot of people that wouldn't normally listen to rap that would love his work. Heck, I'm one of those people. I definitely have a bias against the genre.. it's just so negative and for the most part unintelligent. Shad would appeal to so many people that never gave hip-hop a try before. It's really just poetry with great beats behind it.
