Vibe With It, Man

In just 8 hours Canada's 2008 Polaris Music Prize winner will be announced, however, this year seems to be a mixture of relatively unknown artists in comparison to last year's nominated Arcade Fire and Feist (who lost to Patrick Watson). Of course there is Stars, but personally speaking I don't believe that In Our Bedroom After the War is stronger than Set Yourself On Fire which is enough to keep the gold out of their hands. My vote is running for Holy Fuck, but with their Canadian Council of the Arts trouble recently would they be too risky of a pick? Going past my picks of either Black Mountain, Caribou and Holy Fuck I'd like to introduce the only hip-hop artist nominee and only second in the short history of the Polaris, the first being Cadence Weapon, Shadrach Kabango aka Shad. Bringing back the memories of how hip-hop was creatively done back in the day he's certainly one to check out. Here's his video for "The Old Prince Still Lives At Home," one that I highly recommend you watch, especially around the 2:25 mark when Shad goes minimalist.
