Any young Canadian thatâ€™s ever worked in the media would be lying to you if they said they didnâ€™t even once dream about being a MuchMusic VJ. Well after two failed attempts on the VJ Search, Iâ€™ve gotten my chanceâ€¦.wellâ€¦sorta.
Last week, Canadian rap superstar Shad came through town after his big win over Drake at the Junos for Rap Recording of The Year and I got the chance to interview him. Well normally, interviews are pretty standard. I do my research, bring down my recorder, do the interview and then I spend hours transcribing.
But on his recent tour, Shad teamed up with Scion to offer media a pretty cool opportunity. Shad got his â€œpeopleâ€ to tape the video for us, old school MuchMusic VJ style. I didnâ€™t tell him then, but I was dying with excitement. First, to finally get a chance to have a good chat with him because he way too nice of a guy and secondly, to not have to transcribe. You have no idea how painful that becomes.
Check out the interview, you’ll notice I hardly got any face-time, which is sorta why I know I’ll never make a good VJ. Blogger for life!
