After linking up with frequent collaborator Skratch Bastid on his sharp-witted first single “Stylin’,” Shad keeps the pairing in-tact for “Fam Jam (Fe Sum Immigrants),” the latest track off his upcoming album, Flying Colours.
Together with its family-friendly, community center-shot video, “Fam Jam” may well be characterized as Canadiana rap. And while the namesake character in the first verse is in fact not me, Shad’s biographical sketch does hit close to home, as I’m sure it does for countless others in a “country of immigrants.”
Flying Colours is set to drop October 15th. In the meantime, check out Shad and Skratch Bastid’s EP from earlier this year here.
