Just one short day after his Juno win for Rap Recording of the Year, Canadian hip hop sensation Shad teamed up with Halifax DJ/producer Skratch Bastid, himself the first ever Juno-nominated DJ, to release “Give You All I Can” – a free mp3 for the world to enjoy.

The feel-good beat, driven by a vocal sample, chopped drums and thick bassline, provides the groundwork for Shad to flow effortlessly, bearing his soul on the beat and adding a spit of nostalgia and good humor throughout.

“Skratch showed me the track and it just feels so good. I started thinking about Ma$e and Natalie Portman. Can’t go wrong from there”


“I’m really excited about this joint! First rap record that I have produced since Buck 65′s “Situation” album. What have I been doing?! We’re back baby!!!”
-Skratch Bastid
