[Audio] Shad – “MGD” (“Draft Day” dub)


Bringing skills like Wiggins in the fieldhouse catch him when his frame fills out for real now – draft him!

You know he had to do it for ya! With the NBA draft around the corner and Ontario’s own Andrew Wiggins set to enter, it was only right that Shad drop his take on Drake’s Lauryn Hill sampled track “Draft Day.” The song is perfectly executed by the London, Ontario native and highlights his comedic style that he’s sustained over the years as he wittingly rhymes “draft day” with “Shad K” and “all-star” with “Demar.” Take a listen below and let us know your thoughts.

pete rock

Rich Kidd and Raz Fresco pay homage to Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth‘s “They Reminisce Over You” (T.R.O.Y.) classic with a full studio makeover in part 1 of the CBC’s Rock The Mic series.This series revisits rap classics, with up and coming artists who can represent to the fullest, bring new life into the tracks. The Rock The Mic tribute to “T.R.O.Y.” arrives on the 22nd anniversary of the track, which was released in April of 1992. Pete Rock rededicates the song – a memorial named for fallen friend “Trouble” T.Roy – to Troy Dixon and his cousin Heavy D, whose sudden passing in 2011 was another major blow to the hip-hop community. Pete Rock touched on the impact and importance of the song after two decades in discussion with the CBC.
It’s truly inspiring to see the legend Pete Rock show love to up and coming emcees, and guiding them in the recreation of this classic hip hop cut.
