Shad to replace Action Bronson at NXNE
Action Bronson will not make an appearance in Toronto for NXNE this year, despite the festival's offer to move his show from Yonge and Dundas Square to a private venue. The controversial rapper has, however, been replaced by some homegrown talent (London is close enough, guys) in the form of Shad.
Shad's a pretty good pick as a replacement when you consider that NXNE has likely had enough of the controversy broadly related to the cancelled Bronson performance. His replacement needed to be safe and possess just enough cachet to warrant the billing at YD Square. The recently anointed host of CBC's q satisfies both of these requirements.
