This album was recommended to me by my good friend Kenny P and I’m glad he tipped me off because its really an exceptional album. The Old Prince by the Canadian born MC Shad is rife with dope beats and really ingenious lyrics, listening to the album there were numerous times I had to stop the track and rewind it, just to admire his wordplay. His flow is remarkable, because its so polished, it progressively pulls the listener deeper and deeper in kind of a rambling (not in the pejorative sense) manner sometimes or he can completely switch it up and slow it down. Either way its pretty impressive. This album is definitely worth a listen, I’ve already added it to my regular rotation.
