    Shadrach Kabango (born 1982), credited as Shad or Shad K, is a Canadian hip hop musician.

    Born in Kenya, of Rwandan parents, Shad was raised in London, Ontario.[1] His mother worked in London as a hospital lab technician; his father, as a machinist.[2] He attended London Central Secondary School.

    His debut album When This Is Over (2005) was self-made, financed with the $17,500 he won from 91.5 The Beat's Rhythm of the Future talent competition during his time as an undergraduate student at Wilfrid Laurier University.[3] The album is recognized for Shad's self-deprecating lyrics which is often atypical of the current rap scene[4] and focusing on social causes—for example, the track "I'll Never Understand" examines the Rwandan genocide and includes poetry written by his mother, Bernadette Kabango.[5][6]

    In 2007, he was signed by Black Box Recordings and released his second album, The Old Prince. In 2008, The Old Prince received a Juno Award nomination for Rap Recording of the Year, and was nominated for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize. The Album also nominated him for two MMVA Awards and won him a 2009 Indie Award.[7]

    Music critics have compared his style to that of k-os and of Common, and also to a "London (England) sound circa 1990".[1]

    Shad is bilingual, speaking English and French. He holds a business degree from Wilfrid Laurier University.[8] He is studying part-time towards a master's degree in liberal studies at Simon Fraser University.[1][9]
