Shad Ali has been a big influence in his community for years now.
He started his journey in both hip-hop and in being a youth mentor after college wasn’t working out. Since then he has grown as an artist and now holds a place as one of the best lyricists in the city of Pittsburgh. Drawing inspiration from the energy of kids that he works around and from past experiences, Shad’s content is a direct reflection of his life. This, in my opinion, makes him not only a true artist but an role model for future generations to look up to.
Stay tuned for the series premiere of "Grey Matters" on November 1st, 2017 for a more in depth look at Shad’s story.
