Toronto based rapper and former CBC broadcaster Shad has steadily been releasing music. It's been approximately one month since he released his long-awaited LP, A Short Story About a War. The storied project is narrated from the perspective of an individual who does not believe that bullets have the ability to harm inhabiting a fictional world in the midst of war.
Earlier today, he dropped thought-provoking single "The Stone Throwers (Gone in a Blink)," which takes on a socially conscious subject matter. "The powerless in our world are often forced to resort to especially ugly kinds of violence for which they are vilified, while the powerful actually do much more harm to people and the planet with the more sophisticated 'weapons' of money and influence," he told Exclaim.
Game hasn’t changed, same ol’ monopoly
Same couple players own all of the property
I ain’t a prop, don’t give no props to me
My people still don’t eat properly
Think we forgot? We was just property
Think we’ll be bought again?
Think that they brought them democracy?
