Here’s a new song from an upcoming Shad album. This one is a collaboration with the legendary Skratch Bastid.
Outta My Head is a lyrical introspective track that has Shad getting into it about some insecurities and doubts and dealing with the very relatable issue of getting out of your own way and out of your own head. Shad is the master of fitting in a lot of emotional intelligence into his tracks.

That new Shad album can’t come soon enough! Give the people what they want, Shad.

 

This is an older Skratch Bastid x Shad track that’s a bit more upbeat.

Outta My Head
i just gotta get
out of my head a bit
out of the negative
out of the pessimist
posture of doubt where
everythings relative
and everyone is my nemesis
i just gotta get…
out my bed again
get back in the game
tho i might never win
and the fight might never end
and nothing is forever
every day is heaven sent
and everything is better when im
out of my head
the second im stepping out
whenever i look at you
the second i left the house
the scent of the fresh air
the wind that carries us
the feeling that we’ll get there…
(out of my head…)
thats when we
deal with
whats real
cant numb…
the pain to heal
one must feel
the hurt for a season
but it hurts for a reason
done dreaming
now im searching for meaning
out of my head
things are different

v2-
i just gotta get
out of my head a bit
out of the negative
out of the pessimist
posture of doubt where
everythings relative
and everyone is my nemesis
i just gotta get…
out my bed again
look out my window
see thru a better lens
look up to the sky
and look up to better men
the brethren are getting together
im getting out of my head
not everyone gets to live
death is definite
the rest isn’t guaranteed
life is a gift we get to give
the world is desperate
for us
i cant let it get out of my head
i cant see truth
but i can see proof
the worlds not lost
whenever i see youth
believing in magic
i believe we have it
see that trick:- poof
im out of my head…
and im glad to be alive
glad to see the sky
the sun – i see it rise
the love i keep inside
it’s why i need to rhyme
i need to breathe a sigh
and let it out…
(out of my head)
things are different…
