Season 3 of Hip-Hop Evolution comes on the heels of Shad's recent album release - A Short Story About A War - earning a place on the Polaris Music Prize 2019 Short List. With this nomination, Shad becomes the first artist to make the short list four times since the award's inception. The new nomination follows Flying Colours (2014), TSOL(2010) and The Old Prince (2008). This recognition comes only two months after Shad was crowned "Rap Artist of the Year" by the Independent Music Awards in Toronto. The Polaris Music Prize winner is awarded at the Polaris gala on September 16.

A true hip-hop saga with its own rich mythology, A Short Story About A War takes place in a dystopian desert world entirely of Shad's own creation. A cast of warring factions clash in this politically-charged, post-apocalyptic allegory: Snipers, Revolutionaries, Stone Throwers, and The Fool. Through his exploration of this society, Shad sheds light on the major issues that face our own: economic inequality, the environment, dirty politics, and above all the spiritual struggle for peace within each of us.

Critics praised the project: Noisey deemed the album "the challenging record we deserve", while Rolling Stone described it as "ambitious...a concept piece about the ways in which humanity tears itself apart." Exclaim! and Voir gave the album 4 stars.
