I love connecting with hip-hop artists on location just before they take to the stage. I had the privilege of interviewing Shad at Call the Office in his hometown of London, Ontario a few years back. It was a great conversation and a nice hour of radio.
I caught up with him again last week for his homecoming show in support of his new album Flying Colours. This time he was headlining at the newly renovated London Music Hall.
The venue was absolutely gorgeous and completely packed. So many people were anxious to see the homecoming of our local hero. And he didn’t disappoint. Shad put on an incredible show highlighting his extensive catalog of music.
I was surprised to see that he remembered me and more specifically our last conversation. Even better than that, he was looking forward to another great hour of radio. I hope you are too.
I had so much interviewing Shad for a second time. I got to hang out with Branded Moore and Ngajuana and enjoy a great night too.
What’s better than that?
