If you recall, Shad’s album “TSOL” was one of my top 10 albums of 2010. He spans as an emcee from clever punchlines/battle rap to fully layered, introspective songs like the one above. It’s rare nowadays to hear a rap song “for the ladies” that’s not corny, misogynistic, or preachy. Shad balances these forces very well and manages to craft a really dope song reminiscent of Reflection Eternal’s “Four Women.” This video is kinda cliche in a Dove commercial kinda way, but check out the song.
